M&HD2 opens at LIFT
Last night marked the opening of Meth & Hot Dogs 2 at LIFT Designer Toys. A huge thank you to all of the uber-talented artists involved in the show and all the lovers of the demented, cute and strange who came out to show their support. You made it an amazing night!
Meth & Hot Dogs 2 will remain on display through May 30th.
You can find more photos in the M&HD2 Flickr Gallery and purchase available pieces here.
Do you see now?
Do you see the thoughts that run through my head? They twist, turn and race in and out of the darkness. Do you see them emerging in frantic and mischievous ways? Do you see now?

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.”
