I know it feels like ages since Famished on Etsy has been updated but the dust has finally settled here (literally- it settled and then we had to spend days cleaning it up as we had work done to the house) and we’re getting back to business!
The return of Admiral Ackbar! Rebel forces fear not! The Admiral returns to bring his wile and intellect to repel those darn Imperials.
The tiny, felted, sky bison Appa lands in the shop straight out of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Only four of these were made and only three of these are listed for sale. Avatar Aang will probably be buying one so let’s just say there’s two left for you guys out there.
Last but not least:
The most economic of solutions in the shop: Baby Death trading cards. As you can see, the registrations for these are all over the place but that’s what makes them AAAAWESOME! Plus they’re under two bucks total shipping included. (Hmm, from the photo- the one on the right almost looks like he’s holding an Erlenmeyer flask).
Just click on the photos to be taken to the respective items on my magical etsy storefront 🙂
Doodling felt concepts of my favorite muties has been so much fun that I thought I’d continue. Here’s ol’ Magneto.
So yesterday I did a doodle of a Sentinel concept for felting. Here are some X-Men to battle the Sentinel.
I haven’t done a larger format felted piece in a while. X-Men versus Sentinel? What do you guys think? I’m a bit under the weather unfortunately but the etsy shop will be stocked soon. Finished are penguins and Appa from Avatar: the Last Airbender. Next up are Baby Death and mini Totoro. Then the plan is for Yoda and Admiral Ackbar to return followed by tiny AT-ATs. I’ll be looking to redo my felted Vader concept and offer prints (starting of course with Baby Death trading cards). All this while working on my comic art. 2013 was great but I’m excited for 2014. Hope you guys are too!
First up is a quick rough of Appa from the Avatar: the Last Airbender series to show you a little bit about how I think of things when I do needle-felting. I normally don’t sketch ideas down, but I feel like it’s good practice and it saves some time in that it prevents mistakes.
Next up? Emo baby Minotaur:
I just realized this morning that I didn’t post a doodle yesterday. I will have to double up! First, what’s this I spy? Bags of potential felted Yodas.
To think about other things to needle-felt? I had felted Darth Vader awhile ago but it wasn’t a build I could streamline into multiples easily. Maybe I’ll find a way too simplify. What do you guys think?
Needle-felting time! Apparently some of the shop’s Star Wars items got a nod on Technabob about a month ago (I didn’t even know!) and the news spread across the interwebz to other blogs. Here’s a list of some of the ones I could find. My friend Tony alerted me to a posting on Boing Boing on Monday and it’s been quite ride since.
Geeks are sexy
Anyway, I have quite a bit of work to do so Baby Death is gonna have to lend a hand. The shop is sold out of many items so I’ll be fulfilling current orders before restocking. Thanks everyone for the support and love!
Etsy, I have not forgotten about you. I’m just doing a multiple order for a friend. Here’s my progress so far.
