What's funny about being a plush artist that goes by the name "Skunkboy" is that I never make skunks. NEVER. The only skunk I've ever made was in the very very beginning, and I gave that to my best friend who was moving away at the time. She named him Skunk Boy (you know, like Golden the Pony Boy from "Science of Sleep") and I liked it so I kept it for my brand new artistic adventure-- sewing softies.
Fast forward a good handful of years and I get my first request for skunk toppers. Well, I'm sure I COULD make skunks... but I haven't in years and now there is this weird pressure that's been building up because it's something I have kind of avoided. That was silly. All silly. I made some skunks, I like them, and I plan to do it again. Whew.
What's funny about these "first" skunks is that I made these little guys twice. The first set got lost in the mail, so I'm pretty much an old pro at this point. Look out world, I'm totally unstoppable now. ;)
