Funky Punky Gnomes Blind Boxes

Fresh off their Spring 2017 Disco Tour, the gnomes of Funky Fleece fame are ready to dance their way into your hands!

Now available in the Mochimochi Land shop, each gnome is hand knitted and needle felted by me in Chicago, and each is stitched to his own personal sparkly felt disco tile for self-standing superpowers. 

These guys are available in blind boxes, so you may get a mullet gnome, an afro gnome, or a mohawk gnome.

See how they got so very funky in my 2015 stop-motion animations Funky Fleece and this year's thrilling sequel!

American Illustration 36

I'm thrilled to say that two images from my project last year with Sesame Workshop have been selected for American Illustration 36. 


This was such a cool project to work on—and it's very nice to get some official recognition!

It's funky fleece season again in Mochimochi Land! This year's celebration is funkier and fleecier than ever.

Thanks to Maureen Boyle and William Steffey for animation and music help! If you haven't seen it, check out the original Funky Fleece. You can find patterns for tiny sheep and gnomes, plus tiny hand-knitted gnomes, in my shop! And here's a little behind the scenes shot of our set.

A Cheesy Love Story for Arla

April is Grilled Cheese Month, and food company Arla asked me to create an animation celebrating the love of a grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of tomato soup. This project made me so hungry!

 

Thanks to Maureen Boyle for animation help and William Steffey for music.
