Hine Mizushima's soft craft creatures: unnatural history

Hine Mizushima, a Vancouver, Canada-based illustrator, "slow-crafter," puppet maker and stop-motion animation artist, shared some images of her latest work in the Boing Boing Flickr pool: textile-based hand-crafted little life forms; squid, mushrooms, and other little creatures.

You can purchase some of her work, like this cute Octo-Snake, at her Etsy Shop. She was recently featured in an Etsy crafter interview.

She's participating in a show in Osaka, Japan that opens this week. Follow her on Twitter.
