This little creature is a hand made doll from my series "Phylum Obscura". The head is molded and cast in hard plastic from my original sculpt and the eyes are painted by hand. I stitched his body from vintage beige and grey fabric, then filled it with rice and stuffing so he has weight and substance. I use techniques learned from many years making puppets for stop-motion animation (I worked on the film Coraline and various TV shows and commercials).
