Here we have all kinds of fabulous freaks: Kitty (the Monsters Inc. character, item #090), a glow-in-the-dark alien (item #091), three pigs (item #100-102). These tiny creatures were picked up here and there. I couldn’t say where each and every one was from but I know some came from Kinder Eggs: the crow that pulls the worm out of th ground (item #107), the strange bird with blue feathers (item #104), the yellow and orange worm (item#095), and the scary green smiling thing with yellow arms and suction cups (item #098), and the robo-cat with green arms (item #092). The pigs and the chicken (item #093) came from a set of farm animals, Kitty came from a vending machine outside a Japanese toy store in NYC, and the turtle with the bobbing head (item #094) my mother picked up on a trip to some place I can’t remember. The Monkey (item #068) and the Giraffe(item #067) are also part of the Creature Collection.

2.01.08 I gave these away to an artist through freecycle and we met up at a benefit art show, Corsets For A Cure. As a totally unexpected bonus she gave me a copy of The Daring Book For Girls. It’s perfect.

The creatures became the stars of this creation:
