A Very Sculpey Christmas
December 24, 2009

So I have this issue with giving presents. I want to give them on my time, not necessarily when the calendar says it's time. This does not work out really well as sometimes I forget to get presents ... I'm not always on time with them ... and I often don't give presents one year, but then go overboard the next year. This tends to confuse others.

This year, I decided on a whim after completing Timmy the Red-Nosed Reindeer Monkey, that I would do a Sculpey project for each of my co-workers. My boss was relatively easy - she collects snowmen. (Click for a bigger image - new window)

Then there is the co-worker who likes Hello Kitty. Of course, I had to tough-up Miss Kitty ...

Hello Kitty Harley Davidson

And then there's our supervisor who is about as diverse as me. She told me about a nickname of her husband ... so I decided I'll make him a panda later on ... and her a bear for now. (The pattern for this sculpt comes out of one of my books on Sculpey - it's not an original design.)

Teddy Bear

Another one comes from the Sculpey website:

Little Santa

If you've never seen the Monkeehub animated video of Radiohead's acoustic version of "Creep," you have to go see it. Seriously. It's incredible. I decided to make that character for another co-worker.

And then another co-worker does some really nice vector illustrations ... I decided to do his sculpt as one of his own characters. Check out the wallpaper here.

They were surprised, I think. And it was fun. Now just watch ... next year I'll probably freaking forget to do anything.
