Hey everyone! I was going to post a big thank you to everyone who has visited the blog and kept up with my Channel Changers over the past year when it hit the 10000 mark, but it snuck up on me quicker than I anticipated...haha! Nevertheless, thank you thank you thank you and be sure to stay tuned for some new Channel Changers and even a new plush design that I am working on for year #2!

Hey Guys! So, I just finished up a six figure set of of Hulk Channel Changers. Like usual, I had a blast learning about the lesser known Hulk characters and I always love seeing the finished brutes in all of their cute plushiness. First up, is the big green guy himself....don't make him angry!

Ok, so don't be fooled by the name...this guy is actually another one of Conan O'brien's characters and if you haven't seen him in "action" the results are always pretty funny. Check him out in this clip (don't worry, it's not really vulgar)...

Hey Gang! Sorry it has been a while since I posted, but I have been super busy again and I am going to try to update the blog with all of my new plushies over the next couple of days. The first two new ones I made were requested based off of Conan O'brien's tv show characters. I loved making them because I remamber just a few years ago laughing my but off at these guys while studying for tests during college. First up, Conan would always introduce this guy by saying, "Ladies and Gentlemen this fellow combines the classic stylings of a 1950's robot with the dynamic flair of a 1970's street pimp....that's right, boys and girls every where, your friend Pimpbot 5000!" Enjoy!

So, it is hard to believe that almost a year ago is when I bought my sewing machine and just started making plushies as a hobby. It was a slow start, but I learned a lot to get to the point I am now. As a result, I wanted to remake the very first plushie I made to see what a year's difference makes. Anyway, here is the new and improved Perry the Platypus. Enjoy!!!!!
I also made another Agent P at the same time, and it was pretty cute to see both the unassuming pet platypus and heroic secret spy side by side...

After completing a few individual plushies, I was asked to make another "set"....which I love! Anyway, this set was a little more challenging because I wasn't familiar with pretty much any of the characters, but I had fun learning about them as I was creating them. First up is the alter-ego of Thor...Thunderstrike!
Hey everyone! So, I made this guy a couple of weeks ago, but I have been soooooooo busy with commissions, I just now had a free moment to post him up. It was fun making him, but I honestly really didn't know that much about Thanos except that is big, mean, and someone you don't want to piss off...haha.

I was really excited to finally be able to make a Spider-man plush, but I knew it was going to be pretty difficult and time consuming to sew the webbing on his costume. Well, after some trial and error, I ended up with a process that worked out pretty well. Nevertheless, here is the evil Doppelganger Spiderman! I know he is a pretty obscure character, but the fact that he is a bad guy with 6 arms is just plain awesome...
Hey Everyone! I finished these new Channel Changers a few weeks ago, I have just been super busy creating a ton of new plushies and didn't have the time to post these yet. Nevertheless, these guys were fun to make, and I am glad I finally get to show them off. First up, is the Super Skrull plush! I loved being able to have each one of his arms being a power that he stole from the Fantastic 4. Enjoy!

I'm sure you have heard by now that this guy is going to be the next villian in the new Batman movie. I loved the story where he broke Batman's back and then released all of the prisoners from Arkham Asylum. Hopefully, the new movie will do him some justice.

Next up is a great character from one of my favorite episodes of the entire series...the Gray Ghost. This guy was a tv hero of young Bruce which later encouraged him to dress up as a bat and find crime. I loved this story and make sure you check out that episode.
Hey Everyone! I finished this last set of Batman plushies a few weeks ago, but I have been so super busy that I didn't have time to post until now. Anyway, in this set I started getting into more of the lesser known characters, but I am sure a true Batman fan would know them well...haha. First up, is the half man, half crocodile....Killer Croc!

Hey Everybody! I still have a bunch of commissions in the works, but I wanted to show a pretty cool character I made a while ago. So, here he is...the 5th Doctor Who!
You know, being from the States, I really didn't know that much about Doctor Who. But, since I made this plushie, I started watching of a few episodes of the new season and I ended up watching the entire season. If you haven't seen Doctor Who, you should really do yourself a favor and check it out....I promise you won't regret it.

Hey guys! So, I finally had a little bit a free time to finally finish a project that I had been working on for a while. For this project, I wanted to try using my illustration skills combined with my plushie designs in order to create a cool and funny pillow. Here is what I came up with...
I call it Ninja "Casual Friday" because even ninja's deserve to be comfortable...haha. Also, I wanted something to add to my etsy shop because I have been so busy with commissions that I haven't been able to create some original things to sell. Also, I had some time to create some of the ninjas with their weapons of choice as well.
If any of you guys are interested in these guys, head on over to my etsy shop and grab you one before they are gone!! http://www.etsy.com/shop/ChannelChangersShop

Finally, we get to the Batman villian that is my guilty pleasure...Clayface!! He is probably the most rediculous bad guy (he is made of clay...haha) but the fights he had with Batman were always epic. If it were a real fight, he would always beat the Dark Knight...
Batman returns was actually the very first movie I ever saw in the theaters. I remember freaking out when the Penguin (Danny Devito) chomped down on the guys nose and it started gushing blood. Because of that, the Penguin will always be the one villian that still gives me nightmares...

Hey Everyone! So, I just finished the next set of Batman pieces, except this time I made nothing but bad guys (and gals). I'm loving this series and I am pretty happy at how they are turning out. First up on the plush rogues gallery is the mischievous Catwoman...
