Artists of M&HD2 | A Little Stranger

"Hi I’m, Holly. By day I’m a plush designer and model maker living in London, UK, by night I go under my ‘A Little Stranger’ alias, working on a variety of projects. I’ve been sewing, painting and generally doing things with my hands for as long as I can remember and decided very early on to make it my career. While at university studying foundation and art and model making I started to create plush toys as gifts for friends and eventually started selling them online. I now run my own webshop where I’m proud to be selling both my own work and that of other independent artists.

When I’m not making things I love toys, guinea pigs, shoes, drum and bass, running, knitting, horror movies, and stuff with cute faces on them from Japan.”

M&HD2 | Crowded Teeth


Michelle Romo is a self-taught illustrator and designer who is fueled by cookies and naps. She got her first computer when she was 16 and she hasn’t stopped working since. Her influences include Mid-Century, Japanese, and Scandinavian design and pretty much anything cute.

Michelle created her line, Crowded Teeth, in 2004 and continues to create characters and products under that name. When she isn’t working she spends her time eating good food, hugging her friends, playing video games, and crafting. She currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband Jason and their two cats, Hurts and Morgan.”
