Here are a few examples of the characters I created last year, while living in NYC.
My designs include the Pigs, Panda, and Sea Lion with Fish.
I attempted to create curious creatures with human like emotions.
Happiness, adorability, color, joy, plumpness, shape was my focus.
If you’re wondering about the Beaver, a friend of mine came up with the concept design.
I re-created the character from sheep wool, using various needle felting techniques.
Like the Moose, I blended wool colors together creating more interest in the form.
My only regret is not taking a picture of his tail, which was very difficult to create/ attach.
In spirit of Henry the Beaver, I made a small beer mug in honor of his joyous demeanor.
He sold in the Kew Gardens Art Fair, 2015, but I learned so much about pushing the art form of needle felting.
Cheers, and have a great weekend everyone ^_^
