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.

Here are a few in progress pics of things I’ve been working on lately.  After spending weeks painting the Kalua Moola custom, I wanted to do some sewing again.  I’ve been working on 10 plush deer, and some of them will be hitting my Etsy shop tomorrow.  But for now, here are some in progress pics.

Body parts waiting to be sewn…

After hours of work, the deer are all sewn up. Now I decide colours for noses, eyelids and dots…

Lucky is unsure about the growing deer herd…

Here’s an in progress pic of my Kalua Moola custom.  I had just put sealer on his lower body which is why he’s drying upside down. 😉

And last but not least, I was super pleased to discover I was featured on Plastic + Plush’s Etsy Wednesday blog feature (09/09/09)!  Yay for little brown Ghostie!
