Well, the St. Louis Crammed Organisms trip was a real eye-opener. The caliber of work they had on display was impressive, to say the least. Some of the pieces I saw were so innovative, creative, and different, it made me reconsider my entire plush philosophy.
Here’s the bottom line: I am proud of what I’ve accomplished so far. I’ve come a long way in a short period of time. But I see now that there are many new levels of this art to explore, and I’m bursting with excitement to try them all!
There’s my Woodsman dead center. They inexplicably displayed him without his Axe. What good is a Woodsman without his Axe?!?
Here’s the window display at Subterranean Books – see anyone familiar?
My maggot gets the VIP window treatment! (And I like the little guy they’ve put on top of him, too.)
So what’s next for me? I’ve got TONS of work ahead of me preparing for the Department Show. I’m talking mass production. Then, at the end of July, there should be a little bit of time to experiment with some new ideas before getting ready for September’s Renegade Craft Show.
