I was impressed with the color sketch, but blown away with the final product. What do you call it: a soft sculpture, 3-D model, a stuffed toy fly!? Whatever it is, I love it! If you have any other such creations, I would love to see them.

WOW! the sketches are wonderful.... but the beaded fly is so unique. Can you tell us how big it is...and do you make frogs as well? If you do, you should perhaps keep them on a separate shelf away from the fly.

great job on your 2d and 3d insects. i especially like the 3d one, because i love 3d work, and because it took a creative mind to choose the materials to make such a piece. of course, it also took some major skills to pull it all together.

Amazing, indeed. You are definitely an artiste!
Can wait to visit flickr.
(Oh, and thanks for the affirmation on my rant) If I weren't past all that, you'd think it was that time of month!
