Meety Monday - Artist Interview - Kittypinkstars

Time for Meety Monday! Today we're getting to know Kittypinkstars. She's a fellow animal artist I've gotten to know through #dailyzoodle. She makes super fun drawings and adorable plush! Enough from me! Let's get this interview going!


Who are you? and where can we find your amazing work?

Hiya! I'm Kittypinkstars.. I'm a cartoon girl in a real world! I doodle and make plush.

I came from another planet...

One day I will go home...
BUT until then.. My memories. My daydreams and my imagination will help me to create things that will make people smile!
I'm a contradiction... I'm sunshine AND thunder clouds.. I make rainbows.. I dream BIG!
Life's an adventure.... Wanna come with me?

How did you get started doing this thing you do?

As a child I always wanted to draw and create things. I was inspired by my Nan who would make all our soft toys as we grew up. I would always love to receive another plush friend for birthdays and Christmas. Sadly my Nan passed away before my son was born, so he never got to meet her and see for himself what a funny, sweet and creative lady she was, and I decided to show him how it felt by sharing the magic and carrying on the tradition myself. I still have Norman the fox that my Nan made for me. He's been through so much and means the world to me. So much more than a shop bought factory made toy ever could.I bought a copy of John Murphy's Stupid Sock creatures and created my first plush sock creature. As usual I didn't follow the instructions completely so had already formed my own design. Noah loved it and people seemed to like them so I started to make more, and Kittypinkstars was born. I was proud to be a part of John Murphy's follow up book 'return of the stupid sock creatures' with my design for a creature called 'rainbow dribble' featuring as a pattern that other people could make.

After establishing myself with my sock creatures, the time came to move on to something new and after a few different projects I discovered a new love for fake fur and felt and created kitty's little wookie.. A small plush based on my doodles of hamsters.. As time passed they evolved and now mixed with my love of the unusual and my passion for animals the new look wookies are being created on a weekly basis, with enough ideas to keep me going for a long long time!
