I had to laugh. This is ‘All Mine’, the first critter unveiled by Amanda Louise Spayd for Monsters & Misfits II. She’s a bit candy hoarder (All Mine, not Mandi. Well, maybe Mandi too, you’ll have to ask), and is looking rather befuddled whilst sitting upon her mound of chocolate and … teeth? Ha, welcome to the realm of the weird. Stay tuned for more from our favourite needle ninja — she’s juggling Monsters & Misfits as well as Forgotten Finery at Rivet, so providing she doesn’t pass out in a giant pile of stained fabric, April shall be most exciting. You go, girl!
Well now, Amanda Louise Spayd is certainly looking to take 2012 by the horns: introducing new sketches, a sexy site overhaul and now a monthly(ish) newsletter (sign up here), it seems we all have much to look forward to before the apocalypse.
In this first edition, Mandi reveals that she has two solo shows queued up this year — at Rivet and Myplasticheart — and she’s also part of an “amazing show overseas that will be happening in the spring” (I know you guys can guess this!). Indubitably, 2012 will be the year of the critter, with both fabric and resin editions running amuck (bar the refrigerators!).
