making a tootsie monster is difficult.
in the meantime, i got this done this morning:
i've been knocking cake topper ideas around in my skull ever since my wedding, i wanted to make some but didn't know what i wanted to do or how to go about it without stepping on toes of artists i admire already doing it. i wanted to make them really in my own style and voice.
and, i wanted to make something that was multi-purpose. the recent evolution of my ideas and work brought me to this thing.
sometimes i get an idea, and i wish i had a pocket-sized Billy Mays that could jump up and down on my desk and get excited for me... "IT'S A CAKE TOPPER, THEN BAM! IT'S SOFT SCULPTURE! BUT WAIT ---THERE'S MORE!!--- HANG IT ON THE WALL, AND YOU'VE GOT A JEWELRY DISPLAY!".
i luv billy mays and i dont know why.
the jewelry i've got on that thing (the earrings and necklace anyway) is from one of my super favorite shops, Ami Nyitray Designs. if i had bread to burn you'd bet i'd be burning it there... (hint hint...)
ok i gotta go make taco bowls. nom.
