I had a bit of a think about what cute animal I'd like to see rendered in crochet, knit, crepe paper, macaroni, macrame, collage and gauche paints, and for some reason I went straight to Tarsiers. Because to me, Tarsiers are way too cute for their own good. Cute and creepy. An excellent combination in my opinion. I mean just look at this guy and try not to giggle/get creeped out:
Shush. He's awesome and you know it.
Now I know that what I find cute is generally standing a long way away from what everyone else finds cute. I kept trying to tell myself that the Tarsier idea should go on the back-burner and I should choose another animal.
But the Tarsiers must be obeyed! I simply couldn't resist the urge. So to try and make them appealing to others, I made them have a party and do cutesy party things. I'm sure given the chance, Tarsiers would party like, well, animals.
So I created 5 little guys to work into a pattern, and to have as a stand-alone design for other bits and bobs. I think they turned out kind of fun. I'm working on getting the design on a bunch of products about the place, and of course will update everyone as to when voting starts on the Spoonflower design competition. For now though, here is a little sample:
