Sesame Street: I Don't Want to Live on the Moon with Ernie

To be honest, if there's anyone I WOULD want to live on the moon with, it WOULD be Ernie! (Lennon and Maisy should live with us too.)
I'm so excited to share this brand-new project that I worked on for Sesame Street—truly a dream come true. (Who knew that Sesame Street intersected with Mochimochi Land??) 

The animation concept and all of the characters and backgrounds were created by me (two of which, the Lucky Stars and the Joyful Oyster, are available as knitting patterns). My thanks to Maureen Boyle for her animation work.

Group Show: Hello Kitty & 99 Friends at PiQ Grand Central, NYC

Sanrio has now created a total 100 adorable characters over the years, and to celebrate this achievement, PiQ has invited 100 artists to each re-create one of them in their style. I was thrilled to be invited to participate in this group show, and for my character I chose a little-remembered group called Polar Picnic. 


There aren’t too many images of thee guys online, but it seems that there are always a few listings on Ebay, so that’s where I started. 


Penguins and Polar bears are right in my wheelhouse. Here’s the Mochimochi Land version. 


I couldn’t resist include Kitty Chan herself—she’s hiding toward the back of the piece, disguised as a snowman.

Uppercase Compendium of Craft and Creativity

The Uppercase Compendium of Craft and Creativity arrived on my doorstep in December, and I can't believe I just now cracked it open. 

 

I'm so impressed with how Janine Vangool put this thing together—it's not just photos and interviews, but fully realized profiles with beautifully designed layouts. And I was surprised to find my work toward the front of the pack!

I'm looking forward to browsing the other artists featured. You can purchase the Compendium from Uppercase
