I love doing custom creatures for friends! My pal Dave requested a Rock in a Koala costume and here it is.
It's pretty sizable, huggable and complete with eucalyptus. Even Rock Koalas get hungry.
My hubby surprised me with the 4 new DIY vinyl toy designs from Kidrobot! They are all so interestingly shaped and I am excited to start crocheting over the forms. Certainly the transformations of Bub, Trikky, Rooz and Raffy shall be something to behold. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
Initial speculations indicate that Bub might have to be an Ewok, Trikky might have to be the mascot from Munchkin, Rooz might have to be a hobbit and Raffy is still to be determined.
In other creative areas I am working on a few more rocks in costumes (a narwhal, a jackolope, and an octopus) to send off for the next issue of Stuffed Magazine. Fellow Plush Team member, Scrumptious Delight is on the current issue cover!
In books, I am reading Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan. It's a really interesting story taking an alternate historical look at World War 1. I highly recommend it. Oh, and the illustrations are really great, too.
Since I submitted my first book for publication, I am in that awkward area where I am deciding what to write next. Everything is fodder for inspiration. I just need to decide what direction to head.
