Pop culture plus amigurumi equals a winning, delightful combination. Cristell Justicia's, a.k.a. La Calabaza de Jack, work features those two aspects and viewing her crocheted creatures and characters lifts my mood. Hopefully her creations do the same for you, which is why I'm including them in Fan Art Friday. She takes inspiration from television, comics, and movies and makes little amigurumi from hand without using patterns.
Exhibit A: Newt Scamander and a Niffler from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them:
Please note the Hufflepuff scarf.
Exhibit B: Stranger Things (look at the itty bitty Demogorgon!):
We're so not close to being done with adorable crocheted creations. Keep on scrolling to the gallery below to see some precious Harry Potter characters, a little Doctor Strange, and more. If you need regular injections of precious little fan art into your life, then follow Cristell on Instagram, DeviantArt, Facebook, and/or Tumblr to keep tabs on her projects and to learn more about how to place an order for a lil' plush of your own.
Do you create any sort of fan art? If so, I want to see it. Whether you focus on a specific fandom or pull inspiration from multiple stories and mediums, I'd like to highlight what you do. If you're interested in being featured in a future edition of Fan Art Friday, get in touch with me at [email protected] with examples of your work. If you're not an artist, feel free to email me with recommendations for Fan Art Friday!
