Meet Fritz the mini owl, and Burtie the... regular... sized owl... Both are on my etsy, but I have about, oh, say, 10 more ready for UniqueLA on the 5th and 6th of December. If you're in the LA-area, come check it out, Justin and I are at booth 4014! I have all manner of plush goodness, and he'll have some sweet prints and toys, including his new Hipster Bigfoot!

Now, on to the owls! (More pictures coming this week!)

Drusilla McDowell

My newest deer girl, she has a sort of goth vibe. Her name is a mixture of Julia Drusilla, the favorite sister of Roman emperor Caligula, and Malcom McDowell, who played the title character in the 1979 movie, Caligula.

disney in november

Some photos from our trip to Disneyland today. I tweaked with them in photoshop a bit to make them more interesting to me, or less blown out, until the last two or three. They either had cool light already, or were just plain weird. The last photo is the dinosaurs in the "Primeval World" on Disneyland Railroad.

cheapsters birds

So, I'm currently working on a commission from Jackie Lam, who runs the Cheapsters blog, which finds fun (cheap or free) things to do around the L.A. area and posts them. She wanted some plushies of her logo, the cheapsters bird, for Christmas presents and blog giveaways. There's ten of them in this batch, and here's some of my progress.

My work desk is a total mess- covered in bird fluff, deer girl dress parts, and plushies, but these are coming along pretty awesomely. They're made of fleece instead of felt, so it's a new medium for me, very exciting. I also put Ellie up in my etsy store, and she'll be available there until Unique L.A. in December.

Ellie Hartford, the Country Bunny

Meet Ellie, she's a classy country bunny. The dress fabric I got in my plush trade with benandi.

In other news, I was looking back at old posts, and this came up: my news Year Resolutions. Let's seeeeee...

Oh, and because I didn't put this in the last post, here's some New Year's Resolutions:

-Be nicer
-Be more patient (ummm)
-Be more social. (check?)
-Memorize some maps of LA so I don't have to google everything, I can just know. (check)
-Go to a concert. The Aquabats was awesome, I have to get out more. (hmm.)
-Draw more. (sigh.)
-Do a project in After Effects so I don't completely lose those skills. (double sigh.)
-Take more photos. (check)

3/8. How terrible. But at least I'm honest.
