Plush Art Show: Animus + Euphoria + 2 Deer for Plush You 2010

These plushies of mine will be on display at Plush You this year. The opening reception is this Friday from 5-9pm at Schmancy in Seattle, WA. Stop by if you’re in the area!

Animus + Euphoria
Animus’s name was influenced by ‘Animus Vox’, one of my favourite songs by Glitch Mob. As well as symbolizing masculine energy, Animus also means ‘strong dislike’ which I find a contrast to really liking the song Animus Vox! So I thought it was fitting to call the sad-faced sister ‘Animus’, while the happy-faced sister would need to have a positive name — ‘Euphoria’. Their contrasting names were also inspired by the rabbit print on their bellies. The print shows a happy idealistic union of two rabbits. I wanted the sisters to reflect the reality of this union — happy and sad.  One cannot know happiness without experiencing sadness. There are two sides to every coin and these sisters know that very well. Sometimes Animus leads + days are sad. Other times Euphoria makes all the decisions and days are happy. They don’t always agree with where they are going, but they must work together to find a balance in order to move forward. Animus + Euphoria remind us to take each day one step at a time, and to embrace the ups and downs in life.

Strawberry Death Cupcake Deer + Cherry Death Cupcake Deer own the gothic lolita themed cupcake shop in Deerville. They decorate their cupcakes with tiny plastic bats, hissing cats and smiling jack-o-lanterns. Their favourite holiday is Halloween and they cannot wait for it this year because they love dressing up!
