I finished up this fellow in New Hampshire last weekend.
To everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving, Have a Wonderful one!
I am back from my weekend in New Hampshire and a trip to Connecticut. Now Thanksgiving. But hopefully, I can get a few things done and posted. Here is Lumberjack #1-
Here is a top view. This corduroy type fabric is amazing.
this is #9 tattoo man and the last of this group. Next, lumberjacks.
He’s wearing a silk scarf because, Why Not! It crossed my mind while I was making him so it had to happen.
He will be joining the other fellows in my etsy shop this evening.
I have one more fellow that is stuffed and waiting to find out who he is. Hopefully I will get him finished before I get distracted by the pile of lumberjacks also waiting. This is the busy, busy time of year.
Close-up of the skeletons. And the antique button/belt buckle.
I will hopefully start listing these into my etsy shop, tomorrow afternoon. If you are interested in anyone though, I am always happy to do a direct invoice or a listing with a reserve. All available pieces are listed.
There is going to be a bunch of Day of the Dead toiles in this group of tattooed men. It has to do with my dyeing and sewing up schedule. Here is the 2nd one, all those fancy, dressed-up skeletons.
And more on his back-
I love how his expression turned out.
The weather has been gloomy for the last few days but I managed to get some photos taken this morning.
I like this black and white fabric on his pants- it has a look of a pen and ink drawing. I often think of my work as 3-d drawings or illustrations.
Here is a close-up of the top of his head-
His arm tattoos-
I am always on the lookout for good hair fabrics. I love experimenting with new prints.
Chicken on his arm-
Swans on the front-
Castle on the back-
Nice old cotton rick-rack and a vintage button-
And a cow on his arm.
