Arachnicat Rex Munny by Laurelin Gilmore is creative take on “cute” and cuddly from the back but terrifying from the front and such a cool piece of original art. This soft bit of fluff is off set with some fierce teeth and a tongue and huge ears to hear you with. Don’t miss the details like the small collar and name tag. Laurelin is one of Sacramento’s most promising artists and Art Of Toys is proud to include her creative work often. 8″ Munny
Laurelin Gilmore: Artist Statement
Urban Myths and Legends
My subject matter can be somewhat varied, but the figure has always been my touchstone. I began as a pencil artist and grew into painting as my primary medium, both of these art forms allowing me to explore widely varying subject matter. I’ve often said that I feel like a completely different artist in different mediums. My drawings are fairly straightforward figures in their environment with some playful variations. My paintings use a lot of symbolism and metaphor, fantasy and suggestion. And a few years ago I thought I might like to hold one of the creatures I paint, so began to explore sculpting and assemblage. People, this is kid in candy store kind of fun.
