Shops to SQUEE over: sleepybowie

Last Chistmas, I wanted to give my sister a unique gift, encompassing her interests. Two of which happen to be Philip Seymour Hoffman, and humbolt squids.

PERFECTION!

I can't really recall how I found the shop sleepybowie, and that's probably because it blew my freaking mind.

These human-animal hybrids are melded by artist  Jessie Bowie. While Philip Squidmore Hoffman was a custom order, if you're looking for a velocirapter on a classic pin-up's body, he's your man. Need a special gift for a music fan? Check out  his Prince or Tom Waits.  
And who doesn't love Cookie Monster???

Artist statement: "I like to imagine where my paintings end up and it's exciting to think that someone was confused at a dinner party because of me. I think that's the essence of life. Confusing guests."
