Interview with Jibibuts Artist :: Anna Chambers

Friday, May 25th, 2012


How did you become involved with the Artist Collection for Jibibuts?

They asked, I said yes!  Because I really love their toys to begin with it was easy.

What is the concept behind the artwork you created for the Jibibuts?

When I found out I would be getting the Moli wooden Jibibut platform I was excited since the middle parts spin around.  I wanted to create a mix n’ match sort of toy that can be flipped.

Which other artist’s Jibibut is your favorite in this series?
Well I really love them all. But if I had to choose, I’ll say the Peskimo one is really cute!

I know you create a lot of plush work. What is the appeal of plush creatures as a medium for your art?

The appeal of plush for me is that I love to sew.  It’s just another creative outlet for me.

Do you have any exciting new projects you can tell us about?

I do have some projects in the works for this year, but I can never say anything till its actually done and out in the world.  Expect more plush!

Thanks, Anna!

What’s Up with mph Artists

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

The middle of the week has me checking in with artists who either carry art toys with mph or have been involved in mph art exhibits. So, let’s have a look at what’s going on with a handful of MPH artists.

Rabid, Wild & Docile artist Ben Walker wrote an informative article on his blog about designing a booth space at cons, specifically using his experience at SDCC. With 6 years of con experience under his belt, Ben gives a humble but worthwhile look at planning and implementing a head-turning booth experience.

Scott Tolleson is featured in an article in Divulge magazine. Nice one, Scott!

Noferin give us a close look at Anna Chambers’ work for the Jibibuts Artist Series – coming soon to mph!

Leontine Greenberg is working on a fetus puppet! Whoa!

Rabid, Wild & Docile artist, Michael C. Hsiung has a cool new shirt design you probably want to buy. And by “you”, I mean “I”.

And certainly not least… mphlabs x Squibbles Ink x Shawnimals are releasing a new Pocket Pork Mini series! Looking good! What do you think?

Happy Thursday!
