I am thrilled to announce that this loving bastard is on his way to New York City, where he, and a gaggle of other creatures, will be on display at the Luv-able Hug-able show at Gallery Hanahou next month.
This show will be featuring 'medium and mini' plush art from many of the heavy-hitters in the plush-art world. I'm super happy that my little guys are off to join in the fun.
Here is a crappy photo of everything I am sending to Gallery Hanahou for display (and for sale) at the show:
And, just for good measure, here is another group shot, showing everything that I have made since Monday night. Two days of no sleep has made me absolutely *bonkers*, but I think the output was worth it:
I think a couple bottles of wine and a little Charlie Day are highly in order.
Luv-able and Hug-able

The popular NY holiday plush show is returning to gallery hanahou with oodles of handmade plushes for you and yours! Spread warm holiday cheer with adorable, strange, and funny unique plush toys made by more than 50 top plush artists from around the world.
The plushes will be even cuter and more affordable at this year's 3rd annual "Luv-able and Hug-able," with the special theme of "Medium and Mini!": toys that are either just the right size for hugging or small enough to fit in your pocket, swing from a keychain, or be worn on a pin.
Many favorite artists from the past two years are returning with cuter-than-ever plushes, and gallery hanahou is thrilled to present plushes from a bunch of hug-able new artists too! As in previous years, the gallery will also exhibit plushes by Japanese artists whose original works are rarely available in the US - this year, that also includes designer toy giants Devil Robots and noriya takeyama!
Plushes will be available for immediate take-home, so come early to the December 3rd opening to nab your favorites! Items in the show will also be available online via galleryhanahou.com starting the week following the opening.
