Meet Mimi Lee!
I’ve been making her over the past few weeks to celebrate the launch of my book How to Train the Perfect Parents (Templar). She’s a quirky little person so I’ve had a lot of fun trying to capture that. I used a mix of materials; synthetic fleece, wool, felting wool, felt, jersey, tulle, with the specs from a kid’s fancy dress shop in China.
It’s a bit of a process of trial and error making something from scratch like this, with quite a bit of unpicking and reassembly along the way. But I think she’s turned out just fine; part Muppet, part doll with an unmistakable cheeky look in her eyes!
Splatty Bats was a fun and accessible workshop, with lots of room for happy accidents.
I’m totally delighted that The Society of Illustrators (USA) have selected artwork I created for Even Fairies Fart by Jennifer Stinson, for the Original Art Show this year!
