All my little guys I created out of clay, designing them wearing the cutest hats and scarfs, holding candy canes and trees, birds and presents...bearing gifts for the holiday. The Captain helped me make the little trapeze prototypes out of wood and wire for the tiny snowmen to fly on.
All the whimsicle items just sparkle with great details, funky hats and glittery buttons...lots of playful and happy characters to hang from your holiday tree.
All the penguins come in a variety of sizes, from tiny tiny ornament ones wearing the cutest hats and carrying all sorts of Christmas cheer, to hand painted plates and hot chocolate mugs, to being featured on a large canvas banners proclaiming that Christmas is "Cool!".
I created an overall repeat pattern featuring the penguins and Christmas icons which they turned into a complete kitchen textile set which has the really great color combinations of a lime green and red making it quite festive. In this shot you can see some of the coordinating tabletop accessories I hand painted to go with the collection.
We did a variety of canvas banners, some to hang on the tree, some larger ones to hang on a wall or a doorway to announce the holiday.
Here is a photo close up of my tiny penguins...these are simply adorable...you could do a tiny tree with all these little guys hanging on it...something small for the kitchen or family room where you didn't want to put up a regular large tree... something like this...
more to come... best, carol
