Soft Sculptures by Megan Whitmarsh


These piles of cuddly refuse remind me of my bedroom as a teenager. Previously known for her Yeti and Elf drawings and embroidery (wtf?), Los Angeles-based Megan Whitmarsh produced these unique pieces from scratch after growing tired of painting and drawing.

I assume she grew tired of painting and drawing because painting and drawing Yeti is stupid. What is the plural of Yeti, anyway? I just assumed it was 'Yeti' and not 'Yetis.' Maybe it's 'Yetii.' I always wondered who decides which words get the double 'i' plurals. Radius = radii, octopus = octopii, but rhinoceros does NOT = rhinocerii. That last one has been a point of personal sadness for me for many years. Effing Latin.

Looking at these squishy collaborations definitely makes me want to jump into them head first with no regard for my personal safety. Fun for kids with hip parents.
