Oh, Mister FinchIllustration // Tuesday, 30 Jul 2013
Mister Finch's work isn't quite what we normally feature in the illustration section, but his creations have all the detail-oriented artistry, vision and tactility of the artists we often feature here. Landing somewhere between sculpture, textiles and artisan stuffed-animal-making, Mister Finch is an anomaly in the field of makers--huge, beautiful embroidered and stuffed insects and animals is what he makes en masse. But these creatures are much more than stuffed animals. Hailing from some magic realm of the guilded and antique, these huge dusty moths, spiders, mushrooms and rabbits take on a wonderfully sophisticated, charming character.
