Press: Plush Toys book

I am delighted to announce that my plush work is featured in the new book ‘Plush Toys’! I have a few full page spreads that show photos of my plush deer, plush dolls, and sketches. It’s very exciting to see my personal artwork published in a book that can be bought in a store — wow!

The book was published by the Barcelona-based publishing house ‘Monsa‘, who creates some of the coolest art books. It’s truly amazing to be a part of this book (especially with TADO on the cover, omg)! I’m not sure how worldwide their distribution is, but they have an online bookshop if you require immediate artistic inspiration. 😉  If you would like to see more of my plush work, please click here.

Press: Interview for Electric Playground

I was asked to be one of the artists who was interviewed in the Chuckwa segment for the TV show Electric Playground. Miri was a super sweet host, and asked me about my plush and urban vinyl customs. It was an amazing experience. Check out the video here: http://www.elecplay.com/watch/19/358/3/2

After we figured out the set-up, the camera guy takes footage of the deer.

This was the final set up with my plush deer and Kalua Moola custom.

And this is me after the interview was over… happy, relieved and ready for a chai latte at Starbucks! haha.
