We’re a fan of Lana Crooks‘ masterfully detailed mini feltworks, and it’s always a treat to get some new studio shots from her. This time, she takes us on a small tour of her workspace – a delightful haven of vintage oddities and other ephemera.

Lana’s studio almost makes an artist’s life look romantic(it’s really not – it’s a lot of paperwork and organization). And, if you squint, you can catch a sneak peek of what Lana’s cooking up for Bewitching!

Delicate wings, and paint.


Hmm, lovely felted bones.

One of the Circus Posterus’ family’s favourite toys of the past couple years has been the adorable and slightly creepy bear from InstinctoyMuckey. We are excited to let you know that we have partnered with Instinctoy for the convention, and we’ll be offering an exclusive early debut sale of the next Muckey colourway, the Crayon Muckey!
We’re absolutely enthralled with this Muckey version. As Instinctoy told us –
“We wanted this color way to be filled with joy, happiness ,and fun. That’s why this Muckey likes to draw things with crayons so much, he looks like a rainbow drew by crayon himself!
You can see his teeth just are like crayons, very cute colors. Usually we can’t use a strong color on his gums because it can be see through from the outside of his face. But this time, the neon yellow is match with the tomato red gums so well! This makes Crayon Muckey so bright and full of energy. The standard white flocking on his belly is now cream, which looks even better and high quality.”
The Crayon Muckey features a delightfully variegated glow-in-the-dark pattern and multicoloured teeth, and will be debuting this November at the Circus Posterus table at DesignerCon. Sales for Instinctoy’s Crayon Muckey will begin at 3:00pm Saturday, and at door opening on Sunday.
See you there!
