One of the things that shows up over and over again in my sketchbooks is the man in the moon. In general I enjoy drawing anthropomorphic creatures, but I have always had a special place in my imagination for Mr. Moon. So the eventual creation of the star and moon soft sculptures was only natural :)
They are a simple construction, made out of two identical pieces of fabric. Then the faces are hand sculpted using the needle and thread to give it a more 3-D feel. The details are hand painted using acrylic paint.
I think they are one of my sweetest designs so far. They have a simplicity that is reminiscent of childhood, play and a full imagination.
I hope you enjoy them!
One of these stars is for sale currently on my Etsy store, stop by and check him out :)
