I was able to do some drawings today for a short while before my body started arguing with me (the acupuncture is on Wednesday by the way---I can't wait). If you look on the left page of the sketchbook above you, those are my planning sketches for Little Red in the Hood. The right page has some little doodles--there's a rather round man with a mustache that looks promising. I'd like to play around with fake fur for facial hair like I did for Trevor the Troll.
I'd also like to do a Super Hero Series. I really like the simply shaped plush, so I was trying to figure out what I could do differently besides changing shapes. I would like to be more selective with my fabric. It is hard not to be immediately drawn to the fun and quirky prints that are out there. And, there is so much. You can get fabric with little Sushis on them, or little guitars, or trucks, or moles and mushrooms. I mean look at this, there is a chick with a space helmut on for crying out loud! It is taking a lot of will power to not click on "Buy Now" so that I can sew it and stuff it. I like muted tones, though, and I always forget that when there is so much cuteness around. I especially like muted tones in these drawings from Seth's sketchbook. They are so dreamy.
