Would you immortalize your favorite pet by transforming its photo into a pillow? Yeah… it’s a tricky one. However, we decided to post this unusual project by print-maker Shannon Broder, an artist who “loves drawing and silk-screening all sorts of creatures and bring them to life by sewing and stuffing them into objects you can play with and love!” Her pillows are incredibly diverse, reproducing even small-scale dinosaurs, zebras and penguins.
Inspired by photos she receives from clients, Shannon “clones” pets by creating uncommon pillows. This is her part of work that is “custom”. In other words, if you find the cushions below tempting, you can get in contact with the designer at Broderpress and create one for yourself. Although I enjoyed looking through Shannon’s entire work portfolio, for this article I chose those postures and attitudes that really make an impression. Enjoy!
