And this guy I'm still working on -- I've added more tentacles and I think it's wrapping up pretty well. I still need to resolve the bottom. This is again on the theme of "To Be With" -- it's a communication between the big guy and the five little ones to it's left. This is made of fabric and polyfil, all hand sewn.
Thinking about these guys and that theme of being together is also connected to the bag creature story -- I'm interested in groups and how the act and connect. How do creatures who don't quite fit in, find their niche? They always thrive on love and strive to find their purpose, their home, and their group.
With these prints I have been exploring the form and shape of the bag creatures, and other creatures floating around in my brain. While creating these prints, I can really discover the forms that I am working with, and perfect them. I think this has been reflected in my new work on the bag creatures, which are much more perfected and expanded -- more colors, textures, and shapes.
