For some reason I've been having a real inkling to make fabric monsters. I mean, doesn't everyone? No? Well...It started with a few ideas in my little handbag sketchbook. I carry this around with me when I go to work on the train, and it really, really works for me.

I've no idea who the guy at the bottom is, but the little sketch at the top was my design for a cute little snowbound monster. I envisioned him with white fleece fur and wearing a radio belt around his waist, with lots of dials so he can tune in to radio signals as he wanders the lonely tundra. I don't know, I just liked the idea of it. Later that week I got together some white fleece, coloured felt and had a go, and here's what came out.

I think I nailed it! He's called 'Arctic Receiver'. I think I see a series of monsters coming on...
