|A quilt in Marty Goes to Mars|
I have lately been moved to search for fabrics designed by my favorite artist illustrators and been disappointed to find that it has not been done, or not been done in a way that I can get it into my hotlittlehands. So, Big Fabric Execs, please make the following available as soon as possible.
Edward Gorey is a no brainer. Come on, people! He himself designed strange little stuffies, one of which I actually owned as a child but of course has now gone missing (thank goodness I still have my damned Koosa, though). Alexander Henry took a stab at the Gorey mystique with his Ghastlies this past fall. It was a step in the right direction, but I am dying for the real deal.
|Turn me into fabric, please!|
Lastly, a living artist whose work is screaming out to become fabric--Tao Nyeu, author illustrator of the picture book Wonder Bear. Her artwork creates a whole other world, and it is a world where I would like to live.
A girl can dream, right?
