Confused Cats and Bewildered Bears Formed From Needle Felted Wool

Confused Cats and Bewildered Bears Formed From Needle Felted Wool –

 

Charmingly bewildered animals are the subject of choice for UK artist Lindsey Thomas. The London-based artist carefully felts wool to shape pudgy animals with plaintive expressions that belie their cartoony cuteness and party-ready accessories. Wide-eyed bears ride tricycles with balloons and a donkey with strong side-eye sports a flamingo pool floaty.

Thomas graduated from Middlesex University with a degree in illustration, where she also experimented with mixed media. In an artist statement on her website, Thomas explains, “As a child, I was forever drawing animals and imagining what they would be like if they could peel themselves from the paper. Now I know!”

You can see more delightful felted characters on Thomas’s Instagram and Facebook, and find select creations available for purchase in the artist’s online store. (thnx, Mark!)
