Tree Stump #2

Tree stump #2, I wanted to see how it would look with a bark that was unified. I have one more try for the stumps before I make a desicion for the large one. A couple of people have been asking about buying stumps..These little guys will be going to a show at Gallery 1988 in LA next month along with a bunch of other one of a kind plushies. That shows runs from Feb. 7-14. The Flora + Fauna show is in March at Hobby Horse in Berkeley CA. I will post more info once I find out the dates.

Here you can see the stumps together.

Back to books again I just finished reading the book Lit Riffs Edited by Matthew Miele. Basically they had authors “cover” a song by writing a short story based on the song of their choice. I picked it up for two reasons. #1 Aimee Bender was one of the writers and #2 Someone covered a Tom Wait’s song. I really enjoyed it, and what an awesome idea for a book. It was really interesting to see how each author interperted the project just a little bit differently then the next.

    Love the stumps! Also loved “Lit Riffs” too, it made me feel inspired, for sure.

    I dunno. I think I love them both equally! Especially how one has its arm around the other…too sweet.

    Aimee Bender is the bomb.

    i can’t choose between the two either – both are adorable in their own way.

    p.s. your amazing people interview over at kraf-o-la is so good! great advice :)

    I think Stumpy is my favorite–as someone else posted, the different textures are interesting.

    I can’t wait to see what else you’re going to make!

    I think I like the patchwork stump best. It gives him more interest. Of course the cacti are adorable.
