KD Mac9 Designs

i should have credited Kristen Dillon for the above image of Meeka.  here is an original photo before KD added her magic touch!
i should also mention that the appendage you see creeping over Meeka's head is a tail originating where a tail should.  it is not, in fact, growing out of Meeka's head, or a phallic symbol of any sort.  it's a tail.

 i think about this strange little creature every day, so i am very surprised that i have waited so long to write about her/him/it...
i made this one while i was living in Tofino, BC.  i wish i had kept it for myself, but it was sold to someone who may or may not share my obsession.  
i'm not exactly sure what it is about it that i love so much.  the crooked mouth, the jagged teeth, the teeny legs supporting the mishapen, pudgy body...  
it never ocurred to me that people would be confused about what it was.  who cares what it is, it's awesome! 

the photo says Pamela, but
i have named it Meeka, after my dog Mika.  they are both ridiculous and i love them.

i made a few of these creepy dolls about 2 years ago.  i'm not sure what possessed me, but i love them.  they have barbie arms and legs and are completely useless, except for making me laugh.
anyway, i recently watched Tim Burton's latest animation film, '9' and the puppets in this movie remind me of my creepy dolls.  of course, his are dripping with personality and purpose.

this white one now lives with my friend Lindy.

i made this cat for Johan.  when he(Johan), came over to pick it up, we took it outside to take photos of it.  it's eyes weren't squinted when i made it...  CREEPY.

Reef Glider and friend

A week or so ago, i wrote about this fish i made called a 'reef glider.'  I included a vector image, but just found a photo of the original.  My photos are horrendous, but here it is anyway.  I had forgotten about this strange looking creature crawling on it's back too.  They didn't go as a set, they were just hanging out together the day i took the picture.

lady lamp

i made this lamp for one of my favorite people in the world, Lara Cooney.  As a matter of fact, i believe Lara's boyfriend Dustin, is the mastermind behind the name 'Paper Machete'

the giant foot holding Lara's lamp is courtesy of a paper machete chicken i once made.  i had to amputate one of the chickens legs to make room for the cow leg i replaced it with.  I think the spare foot was put to good use.

if anyone has lamps they want to get rid of, or turned into something else and returned, call me!
