I have always believed that bats are much cuter and should have more positive image over the traditional dark impression. Because of this reason, I made these little Cutie Bats before the fall season. It was certainly a fun project and nice prop for my dolls!
This is a new project that I just finished and sent off to their new moms. It’s part of a fun art collaboration with another artist, Denise Farinsky from Farinsky Art Studio. I would say that our styles in art are quite different, but I appreciate the fact that she loves the kawaii side of my miniatures, and I love her creativity that just seems endless.
Our assignment was for her to send me her custom petite Blythe doll inspired by the Kiki character in the Japanese anime called Kiki Delivery, and I would send her a 3-inch custom miniature bear in the color of her choosing plus a pink narwhal.
The color theme of black and pink somehow meshed pretty well with Kiki’s dark color clothing, and I am very pleased with the outcome. This was my first time collaborating with another artist (after graduating from college, that is!), and it was just fantastic!
Besides the black teddy, I also made a grey one in the same style (a Gingermelon design, used with permission). They are two teddy bears born together but now separate to different new moms. I am happy that they both found new homes, and I believe that their new moms will treat them very well!
