These JuJu Creatures are my good luck version of voo doo dolls… I have hand drawn silk screens to print various faces, wings, and legs so I can mix and match their parts (some have tentacles!) I screen print assorted heads, bodies, wings on various fabrics and then sew them together. I give the fronts an intentional rough finish so they have that magic hand made possible spell casting quality. They may be adorned with shells or special good luck charms, buttons, or beads. Sometimes I hand paint some special details like glow in the dark eyes. They are stuffed with poly fiber fill and sewn shut. Each measures about 10-12" high and no two are exactly alike..
