Inspiration can come from anywhere.
Sometimes it’s viewing other peoples work and mentally mapping out ways they may have constructed it. Sometimes it’s the challenge of transforming the object I see in front of me into a miniature representation. It can be wanting a way to express a feeling, an opinion or a deep love. In this case, it was a joke I spotted on a favourite tumblr of mine.
Sometimes I just want to make things for people, business/money/etc aside. I wanted to not only create the punchline but to send it to her as a symbol of her own radness.
I’m stupidly delighted with this lobster and I think I’m going to have a go at some more sea creatures.
