How adorable are these? The pink one shown on the site is so realistic I think I’d wince every time I stuck a pin in it.

Exhibit B

Cultivated HysteriaArtist Bonni Reid has a wonderful albeit scanty blog where she catalogues her work (creepy with a side of surreal) and talks about her inspiration.

This one is called “Cultivated Hysteria,” apparently inspired by a quote by Charles Baudelaire: “I have cultivated my hysteria with delight and terror. Now I suffer continually from vertigo, and today, 23rd of January, 1862, I have received a singular warning, I have felt the wind of the wing of madness pass over me.”

Sadly, most of her artwork is out of my price range; maybe she’ll offer prints someday.
