Softies humanized

"Neither humans, nor animals" - this is what the file is entitled in which I collect these softies: objects, vegetables etc. with a face.

The eights were made for Andy's City Apartments in Milton Keynes:

But before all of them I created their plumber fellow:

The Band-Aid Man was ordered by a fantastic mom for her grown-up daughter:

I don't know many French words, but I learnt "biberon" for a lifetime when I was making this softie:

"Marker" was a big love of mine! You might think there is nothing special about him, but look, what Gretchen's mom wrote about him to me:

"This is a picture of Marker.  Marker is a marker.  :)  He is always purple - in the attached picture, he looks a little faded - but usually he's very purple - I think her real markers are getting dried out from over-use.  Marker is the star of all of Gretchen's books and stories.  She draws him everywhere.  He has a whole Marker family, and his friends include Eraser and Big Fat Whiteboard.  His body is always square-ish, with a round top.  His outline is always black, too."

What's more, Gretchen also makes videos starring Marker! Do not hesitate to watch one of them! This one for example :-)

Jacques in a Smock is also a star, he's the main character of a children's book written by a father for his daughters:

Cranky and Grumpy live their lives in a theatre in New York, quite surprisingly called Sour Grapes Productions. They travelled a lot between Europe and America thanks to hidden secrets of misterious postal services: they crossed the ocean three times...
