Introducing my first Bed Bug Beast!
Generally, I don't think cuddling up to a bed bug is advised, but I'll make an exception for this guy.
He is part accident, part experiment.
I don't often find knitted sweater hoodies, but when I found this particular one at the thrift store I knew the hoodie part would perfect for something, but I really had no idea what. I played around with a few head shapes and legs, ripped out a lot of stitches, resewed, and resewed. He lay around in my studio for a long while, without eyes, mouth and antenna, until the other day when he finally started to make sense.
As I type, he's on his way to Montecito, CA where he will be part of holiday window display. More on that soon...
