Hand Stitched Plush of Seemore, The Shopkeeper of The I-Saw Curiosity Shop

Used a different technique here than previous I-Saw plushes, rather than being a stuffed toy, or fabric skin sewn onto foam over a wireframe skeleton (like the DR & Quinch characters, which I produced for the "Zarjaz" 2000AD exhibition) instead I sculpted him straight out of a block of foam and then sewed fabrics on for his skin and clothes. Pulling tight stiches to define the form and surface detail means really the process is closer to upholstering than traditional stuffed toy construction.
Here's a shot of the 2000AD character plushes which I referred to.
