Artisans I love: Yeo Mei Ying from Evangelione


For quite a long time I have been planning a post about the fabulous work of Yeo Mei Ying from Evangelione.
Her amazing creatures feature both a romantic, vintage-looking allure and a modern, minimal design.
And I find it really impossible to decide which ones are cuter, her fashionable fabric dolls or her sweet white bunnies. Or maybe her incredible hybrid creatures, such as her half-human bees and butterflies! : )

In case you want to know more about her work, you can look at her blog (so many inspiring pics over there!) or maybe browse the sold items in her shop

One last thing, I was wondering: is any of you on Pinterest too?
Here's my profile: Mijbil
Feel free to explore my boards, if you want, and to share your profiles as well! : ) 
I am always looking for some brand new inspiration!

Big hugs,

Mij

  3. Sono davvero molto particolari, mi ricordano molto i personaggi di Nara Yoshimoto, un pittore le cui opere sono spesso scelte per illustrare i romanzi in edizione italiana di Banana Yoshimoto.
    Un saluto alla bellissima Svezia!

  4. I love these too- the low placement of the eyes makes them look so creepy and dark!

  14. I have been a great admirer of her work as well. But since I have yet to purchase one, I'd probably do with my cute ddung dolls. Speaking of which, it is my first to meet someone who's got ddung dolls. Most of the time it's BLythe they collect. Hopefully I could get a glimpse of their photos here. So envious that they get to enjoy beautiful Sweden!
