These were in another room in the Intuit gallery. Mug shots! Walls and walls of mug shots. I really liked looking at all those faces. I kept wondering what they did to get arrested, if they felt bad, if they were treated poorly, what their childhood was like and who was really worried about them. Some of the mug shots were of women, and some were of very young children. Some people were smiling, and others looked really angry and unfriendly. I can't imagine what the old man above this writing did. He looks like the kind of guy who would give his grand-kids sweet candies from his pocket.
My name is Nichol and I like to make things with my hands. I draw little creatures with tiny pens in tiny sketchbooks while I drink my coffee or watch my son play with trains. Then, late at night, like a little elf (of the shoe cobbling variety), I bring these little creatures to life. I love to make them. I sew them carefully, with love and patience. I use a large variety of textures to encourage hugs and snuggling. Making these fellows (and ladies) add so much joy and whimsy to my days. It is wonderful to have my humble creative pursuits appreciated and I hope that when you bring a Pink Cheeked friend into your life that they sit on your couch and fill you with joy and wonder.
