Pete the Cat Amigurumi by bandotaku
Pete the Cat Amigurumi
Pete the cat! From the children's books by Eric Litwin. As a teacher-to-be, I couldn't NOT make Pete. He's just so cool.

Spock by bandotaku
Spock
Drew this on Sunday, in memory of Leonard Nimoy. His passing hit me pretty hard. I haven't been a fan of Star Trek for very long, about two years now, but when I discovered it, I fell head over heels. The show captured my interest quickly, but like most, I found Spock to be the most intriguing. Not long after I got interested in Start Trek did I find myself completely floored by Leonard Nimoy's performance. I even read his autobiography, just to find out more about the man behind the emotionless character.

In my mind, he's not only been the embodiment of an iconic and deep television character, but also a man of talent, and an "honorary grandpa" to many. It's sad knowing that the world will not have him anymore, but I'm glad knowing that he gave so much for us to remember him by.

Took around 3-4 hours to draw.

Greg Amigurumi - Over the Garden Wall by bandotaku
Greg Amigurumi - Over the Garden Wall
Watched Over the Garden Wall. Then this happened. :D

I was going to make a pattern, but I feel like he needs Wirt first. I have to make them both. :XD: But right now, I'm not sure when I'll get around to making Wirt, since I'm just so busy with student teaching. Aaaaghhh.

Hi Everyone!

I am so busy. I can hardly believe I'm already into my 4th week of student teaching (WHAT) and it's been an incredible ride so far. My first grade class is just wonderful and my cooperating teacher is so helpful and kind. She's definitely giving me all of the help I need.

Anyway, I finished making Greg from Over the Garden Wall about a week ago and I haven't had a chance to take pictures. If you have not watched OTGW yet, please do. It's a really short series on Cartoon Network, and it's so unique and different. I have plenty of notes and WIP pics of Greg, enough to make a pattern for him, but I feel like he needs a Wirt to go along with him... When I'll get the time and energy to go about making Wirt is another story! I just feel like they need to be a set. Like Ash ad Pikachu. Frodo and Sam. Tom and Jerry. Peanut butter and jelly.

Also, do you ever still get comments on deviations from like...2009? And you see a comment that says, "Wow, this is pretty good," or, "Not bad, I like how you drew ____," and you go take look at the drawing, and inside you're like, "OH GOSH, I drew that six years ago, I didn't know what I was doing, pretty sure I drew that in geometry class, how did you find that? Please look away!"

It makes me happy knowing that there are people who find some of my old works and like them. But please. Don't look. :XD: Which leads me to a question: what do you do with the things you have posted from years ago that you are no longer proud of? Do you take the time to clean through your submissions? Delete old, ugly works? Dump them in your scraps folder? Or just leave them be, as past relics of the proof of how much you have grown? ;) Let me know in the comments!

Hope you're having a great week!
Rocket Raccoon Amigurumi by bandotaku
Rocket Raccoon Amigurumi
I finally made Rocket! Ever since I saw Guardians of the Galaxy I wanted to make him, but wasn't quite sure how at the time. After seeing on DVD a few days ago... this happened!
Made out of acrylic yarn, he measures about 8" tall and he has plastic canvas keeping his neck sturdy.

:bulletblue: Buy the pattern on Ravelry or on Etsy!

Hey there! Thanks for visiting my deviantArt page. I suppose that means you're somewhat interested in my silly doodles or crochetted nonsense. Feel free to comment on any of my works or just say hello. Who doesn't love comments?

I'm currently a college student, majoring in things not art-related. My art is just a hobby, though I'm flattered that people suggest things greater.

I kind of take commissions randomly, but I always seem to have some pre-made plushes in my shop, so please check them out! If there's something you really want and are willing to pay for, just message me! I may not always have time, but there's no harm in asking. :)

Thanks for visiting!
