I love receiving requests like this – ones where someone would like to gift a doll to Montreal-based illustrator Patrick Doyon. A gnome please. And so I took a look at his fabulous work over here and got to work myself. I knew it would need to be simple, but I did not how much I was going to love this piece when it was finished. Those sneaky eyes and big ears, that mushroom! I have mentioned this before when working with illustrators, but there is something so fun for me about working from the drawings of others and transforming them into fabric-3D. And would you know, too, that Patrick also creates animated shorts, and illustrates for all number of things that I find fascinating. Go see his website, and you’ll want to play the potatoes video game too…(is it just me or could you watch that little guy run all day long?)
I know you’re looking forward to the weekend, have a great one!
