"Happy"

Seen this odd donkey looking Unicorn, er...pegasas before? Sure you have, if you're a comic book fan. My newest commission request which is NOT (thankfully) a dragon pup came all the way from Tasmania! And...for a much needed and refreshing change, it came FINALLY! In the shape of a Unicorn. My first finished Unicorn, to be more specific. This Pretty Blue Unicorn is straight from the amazing minds and right onto paper; of Marvel Comic Book writer & artist Grant Morrison and Darick Roberston. The character is from the "Happy" series. I was both excited and a little overwhelmed at first. However, once I got into the needle groove, things started to flow.
I do admit my first attempt was all very wrong. I dyed the wrong shade of blue, going for a inky Cobalt. With acid green eyes. Could have saved my self two weeks of felting had I had the artist's picture next to me rather than going from memory. Big Opps! That little (BIG) mistake cost me a ton of precious rushed Christmas order time. I even had to do a few all-nighters, that I painfully pulled through trying to get customers their orders in time to tuck under the tree! So Stressful! So so stressful!

Blue unicorn is approx. the size of a cocker spaniel. His legs are jointed on to pose. His donkey like ears are wired to pose, as well as his tail.
