Needle Felted Wolfman

Run Red Run Needle Felted Wolfman

Known by many names across the centuries, the werewolf leaps from the pages of legend to terrorize us with its woolen ferocity! Pretty scary, right? This is my latest project, the Wolfman. He’s inspired by the Universal Pictures version of the werewolf legend – you know, Lon Chaney, Jr. gets  bitten by fate (get it? he gets bitten!) and transformed into a monster.

Puns aside, this was a challenging piece. His head was uncooperative and it took a little finagling to get his arms oriented with just the right amount of menace. Though, the cat brothers don’t seem scared of him at all… well, at least while the lights are on.

Needle Felted Bloo

Run Red Run Needle Felted Bloo For the last few weeks I’ve been working on a tough project. It’s one of those pieces that wants to fight me at every turn and it’s been very frustrating. I thought it might be good to take a short break from the problem child and work on something quick and fun. This is Blooregard Q. Kazoo, Bloo to his friends. He’s my favorite character from Craig McCraken’s Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. The Cartoon Network show revolved around one question, what happens to imaginary friends when their kids outgrow them? Well, Foster’s Home was there to collect them and help them find new kids. Bloo was, by far, the most imaginative and rambunctious resident at Foster’s. Check out Bloo in action on youtube.
