    Tomopop About Town: Cavey's American Cousins, Part 2 screenshot

    It may have been a while since part one of our coverage for Cavey's American Cousins, a pop-up art show that took place on November 10, but that doesn't make the event's custom Cavey toys any less awesome. Last time, we covered the first six of the twelve artists whose customs were at the party and we are going to close up with the remaining six. The artists left are: Frank Kozik, Luke Chueh, Mochi Mochi, Onell Designs, Scott Tolleson, and Sket One.

    So, everybody ready? Then on with the show!

    Frank Kozik's print

    Frank Kozik's print was kind of cartoon-y. It depicted a Cavey that looks very similar to his hedgehog character, Heathrow, mingling with woodland critters. The colors were very bright and the majority lines were bold, adding to the coloring book quality of the print.

    Frank's Cavey was an excellent plush version of Heathrow (I assume that was what they were aiming for). The spines were a orange-ish red that stood out against the simple orange body without clashing. The Cavey's snout was absolute perfection. It was perfectly formed and I actually couldn't make out the seams. It was like magic!

    Luke Chueh's print

    Luke Chueh's print had a shocking (yet fitting, given who made it) take on the Cavey plush. The print very much resembled Luke's many of other works, right down to the color scheme. It was sad but oddly cute. The little spine in Cavey's torso made me smile for some reason.

    Luke Chueh's Cavey

    Luke Chueh's Cavey (side)

    Luke's Cavey looked very much like his print. I think the translation from print to plush was the most literal in this one. The little bone even made it in there. It looked liked the bone was velcro (I didn't touch it, so this is just a guess). If that is the case, perhaps The poor beheaded plush could be reattached and separated at will? In any case, the pool of blood was a nice touch.

    Mochi Mochi's print

    Mochi Mochi's print was a picture of her custom plush. At first, I wasn't too impressed, mainly because everyone else used a more artsy interpretation of their plush in their print. But when thought about how much I loved Mochi Mochi's Cavey, I appreciated the print more.

    Mochi Mochi's Cavey (tiny gnome detail)

    The knitted Cavey customized by Mochi Mochi was a bit bigger than the other Caveys at the show. I loved the colors used and the fact that anyone familiar with her patterns would immediately recognize her Cavey-ified teeny tiny gnome on the plush's shoulder. It was very much a signature Mochi Mochi design.

    Onell Designs' print

    Onell Designs incorporated the traditional-looking Cavey as well as their custom one into their print. It almost looks as though they are meeting each other from across country borders (or am I reading to much into this?). The custom Caveys looked a little menacing but, judging by Cavey's simple smile, they must mean no harm. The print was an interesting one, to be sure.

    Onell Designs' Cavey

    Onell Designs' Cavey (side)

    Like Luke Chueh's custom, Onell Designs' Cavey looked very much like the one in the print. I thought the use of safety eyes against the black fabric of the eye pieces was an interesting touch and it caught my attention when I was walking from display to display. While the design is more simple than some of the others, it was executed well and looked great.

    Scott Tolleson's print

    If you want an overload of cuteness, you need only look to Scott Tolleson's print. The animated style of his Cavey in a slightly slumped pose just exudes adorable. Of course, an argyle pattern made it on there (they are always on Scott's Nosellots plushes).

    Scott Tolleson's Cavey

    Scott Tolleson's Cavey (side)

    I can't actually pick out which aspect of Scott's Cavey I like the most. Was it the layered hair piece? That cute little smile? Or the comically large tie? I honestly can't say. All I know is all the components to this custom worked in wonderful harmony. I also noticed that the print on the actual plush's "pants" matched perfectly with the print.

    SketOne's print

    Sket One's print was a colorful depiction of their Cavey, right down to the scars and Santa cap. The bright yellow against the green almost made the print look illuminated. For some reason, when I walked past the print, it felt like the eyes were following me. I blame the Cavey's demonic-looking eyebrows. 

    Sket One's Cavey

    Sket One's Cavey (side)

    I was impressed that the details on Sket One's Cavey were pieces of cut fabric that were sewn on and embellished. It made the eyes and scars on the face more noticeable and added depth the face. The santa hat could be removed but I don't know why one would want to. I looks so nice with it on.

    That wraps up my coverage of Cavey's American Cousins! The show was great and it was nice to see Holly Stanway and the artists who participated in the show. The plushes themselves have all found homes but the prints I talked about are still available for purchase over at Holly's online store

    Taylored Curiosities' new Seedlings get festive screenshot

    Taylored Curiosities' latest creature release is just in time for the holiday season: Christmas Seedlings! The 2-centimeter-high Seedlings (5 centimeters if you include the sprout stems) come in two colors (red and green, of course) and have a glittery resin look to them. I like their design, and if you happen to pick one of them up, you'll get an illustrated Seedling sticker and a miniature bag of Christmas tree seeds included with your order. Neat! Plus, each Seedling is signed and dated.

    You can pick up either Seedling colorway in the Taylored Curiosities shop for £12 right now. Anyone thinking of doing just that?
