Two Toys by Mia Hansen

I got these guys in an ingenious swap/purchase with Mia Hansen. She's a Vancouver-based graphic designer/illustrator/toymaker (among other things) and when I saw these dolls I knew I had to have one (or two). They fall into that really wonderful 2D on 3D thing I'm loving (a posed image on a stuffed surface), and the characters are so carefully painted and full of personality. They really look like they walked off the page of a comic book or something. You can see more of them at her site, just click on "objects".

I also had to share my new arts & crafts bookshelf. I would hug it, but I think that would hurt me.
