In art class at school I was told not to do anything cartoony, cartoon was not a decent art form.
This has kind of stayed with me all my life, although I love manga and can see the amazing skill that goes into that work I have still struggled on and on to make my sculptures look as realistic as I can
Tried - and lets face it failed!
So I decided to see what would happen if I stopped fighting it
What happens if I actually set out to make my sculptures more cartoony
and so the first in my real attempts at cartoonifying my wool :)

He is very firmly felted with large bug eyes, head and back wrinkles and little paw pads
