they make themselves pretty

Monsters, animals, magic creatures, laptops and sweets are preparing themselves for my new project: it's the first collection under The Smths lab name (the studio started by me and Amelie Labarthe) and it will be presented on the 14th of April at Fuori Salone in Milan, Italy.
Smth's coming!

Waiting for receiving the plastic pieces I am working on the maybeings' legs. It's a mix between two electric wires (one for the diameter, the other inside as a reinforce), my nails scissors aren't good any more for nails but the effect is pretty good.

Can't wait to hug him!
