Reserve a Kusin Gastkram!

Alot of people have been e-mailing asking about getting a hold of a Kusin Gastkram. Due to this we have set up an e-mail where you can reserve your very own Kusin Gastkram. They will be shipped after the show at Monkeyhouse Toys in February. Include in your e-mail your name and e-mail address. If you want a specific Kusin Gastkram (for example the seventh one made) you should include that as well. Customers will be served on a first come first served basis.

The Kusin Gastkram plushie will sell for $75 each, and the e-mail to reserve yours is


Today is going to be entirely dedicated to sewing for the show in February. I have to finish the cousins, and also start working on a couple of larger one-of-a-kind pieces.

I've also decided to update the blog more frequently. At least one new entry per day.

Back Blogging!

Today has been a day of sewing and making graphics for the upcoming Spok-spok show at Monkeyhouse in LA in February. 25 handmade plushies will fill the ceiling of Monkeyhouse. They're the first edition of a new character called Kusin Gastkram, who's Spok-spoks know it all cousin from the country. They might go into production if they're popular, we'll see, in either case these first 25 hand made ones will be fairly unique.

I still have a big load of paintings that need that last finishing touch. No worries, though, the show is over a month away.

In other news, the Spok-spok headquarter is busy striking a deal with a distributor for Eastern Europe.
