Seize The Awkward

It's awkward to talk about mental health, but it's so important to check in with your friends about how they're doing. That's the theme of the new #SeizeTheAwkward campaign that I was happy to contribute to with this image, commissioned by Droga5.


You can find more information on the website, and see more #SeizeTheAwkward posters by cool artists on the project's instagram



Season's Greetings

Wishing all you special snowflakes a happy holiday season and a bright 2018!

This is the Top GIF of 2017! just announced that this little heart-knitting gnome is Top GIF of 2017, with more than 400 MILLION views! They were even talking about it on the Today Show. Unreal! 

 The people at GIPHY explained to me that love is popular, then algorithms did the rest. 


Funky Fleece 2 at KLIK Animation Festival

I'm honored to have my short animation Funky Fleece 2: Fully Wooly accepted for screening at the KLIK Amsterdam Animation Festival

This is the first animation festival I've won acceptance to, so it's an exciting milestone. My thanks to Maureen Boyle for her help with the animation and the submission. 




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!
