Art Crush #3: Miss Mindy
Not to gush like a fool… but I cannot say enough about how much I love Miss Mindy. I have had the fantastic good fortune to have attended several art events with her work, as well as visit her charming home (where she has an honest to golly Hobbit door and a mushroom house!) and see a bunch of her whimsical creations up close and personal.
Her artwork is unique, silly, creative, and just fun to look at. Each of her characters is just crammed full of personality. She works in many different mediums, including sculpture, paint, woodwork, animation, vinyl toys… you name it, this talented lady can make something adorable out of it.
A good slice of her art style can be seen in this book: Miss Mindy’s Sassy Paper Doll Bonanza. I own this book. I love this book. You should also own this book, you will love it. The end.
She has lately been making some fantastic one of a kind custom vinyl figures for Disney. They. are. AMAZING. Now, I’ve seen artists do some creative things when customizing vinyl toys, but Miss Mindy takes it to a whole new level. Not only are her repaints and sculpts on these figures fantastic, but she adds a miniature scene INSIDE the figure. Some of these scenes move and light up. They are so well done it’s just silly. Silly I tells you!
I could honestly go on for days, but maybe I should just let you go see for yourself!
