Ladies and germs, the wait is finally over! Oh wait…it isn’t, and Friday feels forever away.
Many of Amanda Louis Spayd’s critters for Migration have been sleeping during the day and traveling at nights, hence why we haven’t seen too many of them, but we can’t keep mum on too many for much longer. Without further ado, we bring Amanda Louis Spayd’s “Pilgrim” (if you click more).
This large doe eyed traveler is literally carrying the weight of their world on their shoulders. Strapped to a little squishy back are two boxes, a crate, and even a hope chest full of dreams and the unforeseeable future. Oh, we can’t forget the tiny milk jug…just in case they get parched along the way! Pilgrim is swaddled in a lovingly handcrafted outfit with an embroidered top adorned with golden mustard and garnet thread with a rustic lace skirt.
If you like what you see here and would like to start or add to your very own derpy plush travel collection, be sure to sign up for the mailing list on Stranger Factory’s homepage to ensure purchase opportunities for Amanda’s amazing work.
Chris Ryniak and Amanda Louise Spayd’s “Migration” opens March 1st through the 31st at Stranger Factory (109 Carlisle Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87106).
