Pigs & Squirrels



Squirrels are among my favorite animals for sure, they’re cute, and agile, and so fun to observe! So I made this little pic out of pure squirrel love (once again, Illustrator + Photoshop).

Pigs are also high up on my list, as you may have concluded from the name of the blog, and they deserved some love as well, so I made this plush pig called Piggory here. I’m really happy about the pattern I developed for this one, I think the shape came out really nice. I’m also proud of its curly tail!

Las ardillas están entre mis animales favoritos: son tiernas, ágiles, y entretenidísimas de observar! Así que la primera ilus está hecha de puro amor ardillil (una vez más, Illustrator + Photoshop).

Los chanchitos (o cerditos, para los que no hablan argentino) también me encantan, como pueden haber deducido por el nombre de este blog, y también merecían una dosis de cariño, por lo que hice este peluche cerdil que bauticé como Piggory. Estoy particularmente contenta con el molde que hice para él, creo que la forma resultante quedó muy interesante, y también con su colita enrulada.

I’ve been making some plushies for some friends in the past months and I finished this little guy for Rob this weekend, so I’m putting up some pics Fed took of it. I’m quite happy with how it came out!

Anduve haciendo algunos muñecos de felpa para amigos varios en estos últimos meses, acabo de terminar uno para Rob este fin de semana así que pongo algunas fotitos que sacó Fede del muchachín. La verdad estoy contenta de como salió!

I’ve been invited to participate in this Kokeshi Group Show in San Diego, I had to customize a Kokeshi doll and now it’s ready to be sent! Just in time too, cause we have just been allowed to post full pics of our kokeshis! So here’s a bit more info on the show, and then you can see a nifty Flash turnaround of my entry.

In celebration of Bunka-no-hi – a Japanese national holiday promoting culture, the arts, and academic endeavour – Subtext and guest curator, Christina Conway, have carefully selected over 75 artists from 13 different countries to customize traditional Japanese Kokeshi dolls. The Kokeshi doll is a traditional folk art form of Japan, dating back to approximately 1830. Originally made by craftsmen during the winter months for sale to tourists, they have come to symbolize Japan to people around the world. Featured artists include Audrey Kawasaki, Marcos Chin, Julie West, Brandi Milne, Calef Brown, Camilla Engman, Catalina Estrada, Fiona Hewitt, Gina Triplett, Jeremiah Ketner, and many more.

Here’s a list of all participating artists.

Me invitaron a participar en una muestra colectiva en San Diego para la cual tuve que customizar un Kokeshi (es una muñeca tradicional japonesa de madera). Acabo de finalizar el mío y justo se nos ha permitido mostrar imágenes completas de los trabajos, así que acá les dejo un bonito Flash en el que se puede ver desde todos lados.

Acá pueden ver la lista completa de los artistas que participan en la muestra.
