Mini Knits

For work I'm in the process of making a teeny tiny cardigan for a little girl marionette. Because she is a marionette, the sweater has to be very flexible so she can move around, but her total height is only about 10 to 11." So I ended up getting the thinnest yarn I could find and then unwinding it into three strands. I've been knitting with just one of the strands. I'm using size 5, 6" double pointed needles, so the resulting knit is loose, and pliable. It is very time consuming though. So far I'm about half-way through the first sleeve, and that's after about 3 hours of work.

Below is the little girl minus her head, hands, and feet. Also, check out the tiny little Victorian-style booties that I made to fit over the top of her shoes!

It reminds me of that Chuck Jones cartoon (about Tom Thumb maybe?) where an old farmer and his wife wish for a baby and they end of with a tiny son - but I always remember the scene where the wife is pregnant and is knitting thousands of little baby booties...I wish I could remember the title....

Getting fresh with the Devil...

At work today I had to fix up the lining between the arm and shoulder socket on a buff, life-sized, animatronic devil. Since he was already completely assembled, it was difficult to maneuver around to the underside of his arm. My boss suggested I prop his arm up somehow to get underneath, but the mechanical system within the arm was so heavy that all the props I found kept falling down. In the end there was only one solution that actually worked... was an uncomfortable afternoon.

Wild Woods Design officially launched!

My etsy store has finally launched! Hip hooray! Most regular readers will recognize the art prints currently for sale, but there are many more illustrations in the works. I'll be posting in-progress drawings and mask pictures here as usual, but the final products will now be for sale.

All the prints are done on high quality Epson textured fine art paper with Epson inks (very archival), but the best part is that they were printed by a local artist here in Oakland! You can view his work and get information about his printing services on his website. The prints turned out great and have a nice velvety look to them. Check it out!

Threadless Submission

Now that I've got some free time while I'm searching for a job, I've started working on a new Threadless submission. Here's a hi-res version of the drawing itself. Once I have the design submitted I'll post a link to that here as well.
