So, I have been in two shows this year at Lowbrow Denver, and had a really great time making items specifically for those shows.
In the most recent show, they were asking for “Toys.” I took this to mean that they wanted custom toys similar to the ones they sell in their shop. You know, Kid Robot, Muni, TokiDoki, etc…
I used a bunny skull that I found in the backyard one day- cleaned it up a bit (I don’t like them super white) then I gave it an off-white crochet mask and set it on the head of a blind-bag Toki-Doki unicorn that I’d painted blue. I liked getting to think outside the usual box. Best of all- the piece sold! Yay!
The first show of the year was a “Black Velvet Show” in which I was given a black velvet canvas, and then I created a piece of work around it.
I posted a blurry pic before. In this one I used a turkey skull given to me by a fellow knitting friend who raises fowl of all sorts. (I have great friends)
Also, here is the different between a turkey skull and a chicken skull in case you were wondering:
And as for what’s happening now… I just got a size 16 crochet hook from some other awesome friends (pictured below) and I’m excited to crochet some tiny tatting threads I’ve been hoarding! Who knows what’ll happen? It’s all magic and mystery…
