Crocheting doesn’t exactly have a reputation for evoking fear. But we stumbled across artist Croshame, who creates unique plushies with a dark twist. With a background in painting, drawing and traditional sculpture, Shove Mink (AKA Croshame) begrudgingly took up crocheting in October 2009. What was at first a tenuous relationship with the craft soon blossomed into an all-out obsession when Shove began making her own amigurumi designs in Janurary 2010. Her newfound love and fervor for the medium prompted her to concentrate more heavily on her art than ever before, and she quickly built up a large array of charmingly disturbing crochet characters, as well as learning other fiber art mediums and techniques along the way.
Check out her website for more information, and take a look at some of the awesome pieces below.
