A whole bunch of things!

Max made this amazing creature for our etsy shop! He's so adorable. Oh man, I guess I use the word adorable now :(

I found this amazing giraffe vinyl fabric at Mood in NY and really wanted to use it so I started making this guy. I might give him some ears and maybe some clothes. He feels naked. Well, he looks naked. He feels naked too.

As for what has been taking up a huge chunk of my time outside of food, work and sleep, I was commissioned to make 8 of these guys:

So I've been trying to paint all the faces at once:

And sew all the bodies at once:

And then all that's left to do is a thousand other things!!

It's all good!

Steven Wright

My dad exposed us to comedy when my siblings and I were little. We were watching Jon Belushi and Gilda Radner on SNL and old tapes of stand-up comics like Steven Wright. I was a pretty weird child and used to sit on the bathroom counter making faces in the mirror until my sister would yell, "Cammi!!! What are you doing in there?!!?!"

My favorite things to make are also the most ridiculous. I'll get a dumb idea and then think, "oh, this has to exist now!" A case in point is my new Steven Wright doll that I've spent hours and hours working on over the last couple weeks, for absolutely no reason other than to laugh at it.

Good Evening!

Sometimes You Need to Double Down

Even though I'm a poker player and not a blackjack player, the term doubling down seemed appropriate. Max began creating a character that would sit in a robotic chair. He wanted him to be lazy and fat. He ended up being too fat to fit in the chair so Max decided to sell him separately and make a tinier guy for the chair. Here's the new guy and his amazing chair:

And another guy that Max made with a face that I sculpted:

I'm a bit overwhelmed with a commissioned project that I'm working on but still finding time to satisfy my recent painting urges. Here is a painting I finished last week of the comic, Lenny Bruce:

At the moment I'm also working on one of the most ridiculous things I've ever created; a doll of the comedian Steven Wright. I'm a big comedy nerd. Pictures of progress on that soon!!

Good morrow!
