I grabbed a link from Deanne Cheuk’s twitter last week and it lead me to the work of Rilla Alexander. Rilla is an Australian illustrator currently working in Berlin and she’s also a card carrying member of Rinzen. Browsing through all of her beautiful work I came across these Sozi toys she created with her mother and sister about 8 years ago. They’re made of embroidered wool and are some of the coolest dolls I’ve ever seen.
I really love that they did different versions like the gray one who looks kind of sad and the lightning struck skeleton version is amazing. Look at the “oh shit” look on the cats face! I wish these were for sale, I would snatch them all up.
