About

What?

100 unique felt monsters, handmade by German artist Anja Sturm. You simply choose a main color and Anja does the rest. 

How?

Felt is the main material Anja will use. She starts with loose strains of wool and creates the body shape out of those by needle felting. For details she might also use other materials such as wood, modelling clay, wire and paint. Please watch the video if you are interested in the basic process.

Who?

Anja is an artist from Germany who is mostly known for her illustration work. She also is a published author of childrens books, has done masks for music videos and sells prints and postcards through her Etsy shop.  

When?

NOW! But when you receive your monster highly depends on how early you back the project and how many backers there are. It will be first come, first serve. Someone backing early might receive their monster already in February while someone backing late might have to wait until May.

Please note: Those monsters are artpieces to be displayed, not meant as toys to be played with or to be used as stuffed animals for children. Their purpose is purely decorational, not functional.

Other Rewards?

Don't want to invest in a real monster but want to support the project? Here are some pictures of monsters! I offer postcard print sets as a reward. Each set will include 5 postcards (Din A6 size). All Illustrations were created by myself. Postcards may include these motifs or motifs drawn in a similar style:

Risks and challenges

Every monster is unique in shape, color and details. I give you the option to choose the main color for your monster, but all other design decisions are made by me, so there is a slight chance that you'll not like how it looks.

Depending on when you back the project, it can take quite some time for your monster to arrive. I am making all 100 monsters from scratch by hand, so if we hit 100, the last backers might have to wait for a few months.

Backers from outside of the EU, please be aware that there could be toll fees. Shipping Fees are included in the price.

The wool used is south american merino wool, please make sure you don't react allergic to it.
