Since 1994, Felt Mistress has been hard at work, creating a legion of one-of-a-kind bespoke creatures. Working collaboratively with her partner, illustrator and toy designer Jonathan Edwards, the inimitable Louise Evans has brought hundreds and hundreds of amazing characters to life and has been featured in countless exhibitions worldwide.
Collecting over 8 years’ of work, Blank Slate and editor Woodrow Phoenix (Plastic Culture: How Japanese Toys Conquered the World, Nelson) are proud to present Creature Couture. From Demetri the pipe-smoking Yeti, to monster-truck lovin’ Dwight Klugg, to fan-favourite adventurer Tippy Winkles, the book features well in excess of 500 creatures and contains character information, Jonathan Edwards’ original design ideas, collaborations with other artists and more. Also includes interviews with celebrated collaborations such as Jon Burgerman, Pete Fowler, Ben Newman, John Knox, Nobrow and more.
