When I first saw Dan Reader’s amazing faux taxidermy trophies, I thought “Wow…this isn’t the paper mache I did in grade school.” Then I clicked on his homepage and saw the tagline “Not your grade school paper mache.”
I love the fact that Reeder never duplicates commissions, no matter how high the demand, because he wants his patrons to have truly unique, special pieces.
Fine Line Workshop has a collection of boxes with…personality.
My dear friend Lindsay linked me to a post about the forthcoming opening of a Godzila themed hotel in Japan.
The 30-story hotel sits atop the Shinjuku’s Toho Cinema, and there is an “observation deck” if you want to get up close and personal with Godzilla.
This adorable little girl, embracing her monster (with a matching flower on its horn!) was the first piece from Omar Rayyan I laid eyes on a long time ago.
This image caught my eye on Pinterest and I was immediately excited about the concept:
At Child’s Own Studio, Wendy Tsao immortalizes the colorful imagination of children by turning their drawings into plush creations.
I don’t have children, but if I did I would definitely order one or try my hand at this (I’ve made plush versions of my grown up friends’ doodles)! The price is a bit steep ($250), but Wendy’s accuracy is pretty remarkable and it’s clear that a lot of TLC goes into her work.
If you have kids, what drawing would you want to give plushy life to?
