Meet Scratch the opossum!
Scratch is very impudent and hyperactive. He can be really annoying and drive you crazy just for his own amusement. He loves to roam in trash cans, sleep in dirty clothes and he will sell his soul for a piece of bacon!
20cm (8 inches) tall. Details are cast in resin and the body is soft (no joints or skeleton armature inside), he has some plastic pellets in his belly to give him good balance. His charm is made of mammoth ivory shards, agate and shell beads.
Attention! This is a piece of art. Not a toy for small children. Completely handmade, one of a kind.
urgleblurgle I love Remjie’s dolls
Show is up and awesome! I can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow 6-9pm @cluttermagazine. Preview goes out tomorrow too if you can’t visit in person. (at Clutter Magazine)
Case moth caterpillar. MY GREATEST ENEMY!
It eats animal fibers. YOU KNOW, LIKE WOOL. URGH GET OUT OF HERE, I HATE YOU >:(
It was creeping slowly and laboriously up my wall and I didn’t have a clue what it was until I took these photos and asked the internet. I couldn’t kill it though. I chucked it outside, far far away. I am a weakling.
Blossom bat by Cretur Fetur, made as a custom order. I’m particularly happy with how the face turned out, definitely the best megabat face I’ve made so far. :)
~I WON THINGS~
There’s a blog I love and have been following for a long time, Having Horns. E. Rega is a skillful, inventive seamstress and as a needle putz I love looking at the character costumes and super stylin’ clothes she makes.
So anyway, she had a giveaway, AND I WON ALL THESE THINGS! The main prize was the gorgeous floral pattern lucha mask, which fits me perfectly (thank goodness she has as tiny a head as I do, hahaha). But there were tons of other awesome things in there!!
DAT FABRIC, you can’t see in the photo but it’s subtly shimmery, and it’s got a delicious texture.
TASTYCAKES. I will eat them.
I DON’T KNOW what that lovely embroidered semicircle thing is because I am a rube and a noob (roob) but I appreciate it as an art object.
SHINY SHELLS from the Jersey Shore. I love the long one. I’m gonna make something with all these.
LOOK AT THE SQUIRTLE. LOOK!!
AND THAT EMBROIDERY OMG, IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL. A sweet closeup for your viewing pleasure:
THE WITCH. I want to be like her when I grow up.
AND THE MASK, it’s so soft and velvety inside and out, and I will have the best halloween costume this year. Or maybe I’ll just wear it when I feel like being incognito.
Aaahh I can’t get over this bounty. Take a look at E. Rega’s incredible portfolio here.
My piece for Stitched, which opens April 13th at Clutter Gallery, in Beacon NY. The show was curated by Lana Crooks, plushmaker extraordinaire, and showcases a lot of incredibly talented artists working in soft sculpture. I admire them all and I feel honored to be part of this show!
The piece is called Other Side and it’s 29” tall, making it the biggest art piece I’ve made in the last four years. The show is open until May 4th, so be sure to stop by and have a look.
Preview of a large piece I’m working on for Stitched! I’M GONNA BE IN A GALLERY SHOW! It opens next Friday, at Clutter Gallery in Beacon, NY and it is curated by one of my personal plush heroes, Lana Crooks.

Here’s a photo of the Texas blind snake I found last year :3
You can see this one’s face a little bit better.
Yes ma’am! Leptotyphlops dulcis, which means “sweet little snakeykins awww lookits lil tongue”
If you make the picture big and look real close you can see the scales, but unfortunately I didn’t manage to get a good shot of it doing the tongue thing they do to sniff around.
