The “Luv-able and Hug-able” plush show is still up at Gallery LELE in Tokyo (you can faintly see three of my works hanging on the wall in the above itty-bitty photo), but for those who can’t make it there by February 11th, a couple of my toys from the show are now available for purchase at the gallery’s online shop. (They’re being exhibited under my name, Anna Hrachovec.)
It’s pretty exciting to see my toys alongside the classic plushes by My Paper Crane and the exquisite work of Betz White, among other amazing artists.
Here is a close-up of my piece “Wuzzle” in the show. The four creatures fit together puzzle-style, or they can also go solo as in the photo. The top left one looks a little warped here – they’re a bit of an unruly bunch, but you can’t say that they haven’t got character.
