Strange Animal Artist Toys - Siberian Moose Edition

Hello again blog world! I have been very busy, don't fret!check out a couple of my bandnewest beasts from my Genetic Failure Friends Series!

This is Alik, The Siberian Moose,--- AKA The White Moose, AKA The Arctic Thin Antlered Moose, AKA The Alaskan Snoutless Moose. Whichever suits.

Alik is a vegetarian, evident from his nubby round teeth. He gnaws bark off trees and eats grass and leaves. He's a good friend to have around, even if he is slightly absent minded.

Made from the body of an antelope toy with a head sculpted with epoxy clay (Apoxie Sculpt). Painted with acrylics. About 5inches tall.

This is a Donkey-mounted apothecary and general store, owned and operated by a 9 year old boy who pulls it along by it's lead and hawks his wares. The boy climbs up on fences to reach the top drawers. The structure had been painted and worn down and repainted so many times that it's real color is hard to define.

The boy keeps anything he can fit into the cubbies in this mobile-store, any thing he thinks he can sell. Rose water, tea, poultices, herbs, bergamot oil, dried mint, witch hazel, raspberry preserves, salt, sugar, tin and horn cups, sewing needles, ribbon, buttons, carved wooden soldiers, pots of ink and anything else he thinks a customer might come to him for.

Made from a plastic Donkey toy with the structure built on top with paper clay. painted with acrylics. about 6.5 inches tall.

Meet Hubert, the only one of his kind on earth. He comes from a planet called Verdingly, a planet even more lush and green than ours.

Hubert is mostly a vegetarian, except that his right-side head requires a certain amount of animal protein, so occasionally, you may lose a small domestic pet.... like a shitsu. But otherwise completely harmless! Made from the body of a Lynx toy and three heads sculpted with epoxy clay. Painted with acrylics. about 4 inches tall.



This is Blue Beak the Terrible, who is not terrible in the least. He has a great sense of humor and loves to laugh and tell off-color jokes.

He's an excellent party guest because he keeps everyone amused while you cook, but don't let him get drunk too early because he likes to rummage through your panty drawer when you're not looking. Or peeing.
He's a very bad host, because he'll already be drunk when you get to his house, and he'll have rummaged through his own panty drawer and come up dry, so there will be frilly bits all over the house that you want nothing to do with, but can't stop yourself from imagining him dancing around in. He's that kind of guy.

Blue Beak here is made from the plastic body of a dark red dino toy, and a head made from paperclay on wire, and painted with acrylics. About 7 inches tall.

This is Boston the Grey Anteloceros. She's a frisky lady who loves to frolic! Her flashy horn and black and white spots get her a lot of attention from the boys of her very unique species.

Made from the body of a plastic Kudu toy and a head sculpted from paperclay and a horn made with a bit of jewelry.

 All of these folks are made by me, Cari Rakai, as part of my Genetic Failure Friends Series (GFFs) with the bodies of toys and heads that I've sculpted myself. for more photos, more toys and other assorted art work from me, check me out here
