I’ve been busy this year releasing several new lines of cute characters for my company Merry Happy Studios. Among them is the dango x animal remix design. If you’re not familiar with dango’s, they’re a Japanese sweet dessert made of rice flour and comes 3 on a stick. They’re super yummy and pretty too! Take a peep below to see my design~
These plushies were made in a limited edition number of 150 and they’re so squishy and soft. ^-^ They’re still available on my website and etsy.
Acrylic necklaces on gold accented ball chains
Waterproof vinyl stickers. Slapping them everywhere!
So what do you guys think? You like? I’m always looking for feedback. 😀
This past Saturday I was lucky enough to participate in a little meeting of creative minds. For 6 months my coworkers and I have been thinking and actively creating art just for the sake of art. No clients, no pressure, just a return to our roots back in our college days. For me, just like the college days I procrastinated till the last minute. I panicked in December and brought massive amounts of supplies. My mind was all over the place. Some ideas were too big to be completed by the February deadline so I focused on painting. I actually did 2 paintings midway and then abandoned it and started new. In the end I had 3 completed paintings and 1 sewn felted plushie. And I’m in the midst of starting another painting and have a idea to felt another creature as well. Thanks to my art director Kirk Benshoff for coming up with the idea and setting it all up. If not I would’ve never picked up a paintbrush again. All in all, it was a great night and I was dead tired by 10.
