I’m not sure I’ve mentioned it on tumblr, but painting, doodling and sketching aside, I make gourd crafts.
I love making things with gourds because it’s like a character design challenge. There are many different gourd shapes and I have to picture what kind of character might have a shape like that. I sometimes add details like pistachio ears, beaks, bulging eyes, etc. to complete the design. Other times I give the characters winter clothes, because I like them. No two can ever be trully the same.
On May 3rd I’ll have my first booth at a gourd festival, so wish me luck!
