Trio Magnus!

Here are a group of dolls I finished recently for an upcoming art show featuring the super talented artistic trifecta - Trio Magnus. I picked a bunch of characters from among the many canvases the guys created at live art shows. The tallest, the Basket-ball dude (naturally) is about 15inches high. The smallest is this little egg at about 4inches.

Even in the creation of these "dolls", your artistic talent shines through. Nice job. - A.

Thanks, Alan. I try to interpret the guys' art as closely as possible. The show went well and, I believe, all the Yarnies™ sold. That makes me happy!

I took up knitting recently and find it one of the most enjoyable things ever. The pieces you're making are great! Very inspirational. :)

Thanks, Aman. I really enjoy knitting and crochet. It's actually pretty relaxing...unless you drop a stitch.
Are you making clothing when you knit? I have yet to do that, really. Except for the clothes for my dolls...er, Yarn Sculptures! Or Yarnies™ as my buddy Aaron dubbed them.

Zoey - Glad you like these little guys. They're all based on the drawings of three friends of mine! The guys call themselves "Trio Magnus"!

I've got a pattern for general "cute" body types but not specifically for a Sea Monkey. I'm actually hoping to put together a book of patterns soon!

AS for buying one -- are you in Canada? Send me an e-mail at: banjonose@gmail.com and we'll, possibly, work something out :)

best,
