interview with loveandasandwich
We interviewed the amazing artist and plush maker Love and A Sandwich!
Recess Blog (R) : What inspires you in your art? Is it based off someone you know?
Loveandasanwich (L) : Other art constantly inspires me. Clothing design, architecture, cinematography, other plush artists. Animal documentaries are really inspiring. The things I enjoy doing in my everyday life inspire me too. Usually when I start a new design I just think of everything I like and how I could combine a lot or a few of those things into one plush.
R: How would you describe your sense of style? What do you make the most?
L: Bright, spontaneous and cutesy creepy. I definitely make monsters the most, they're my favorite because there's unlimited ways you can make them.
R: What cartoon character are you most like?
L: I'm like Ash Ketchum (from Pokemon), I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was.
R : What do you think people should look forward to? Like a new design?
L : Oh man, ummm. I've been planning a lot of things lately. I'm working on a plush project with my pal cat called ME PLUSH YOU which is gonna be started in mid-January. I'm working on some 3 foot tall monsters, and I have my website in progress! And maybe some paintings, too.
R: Just imagine you're president. What would be your first official act?
L: Banish Bush to Iraq for eeeeternityyyyyy.
R: You've made several items. What's your favorite and why?
L: Hahaha I've made quite more than several! I don't know if I could pick a favorite, they're like my children! You love them all. But I think it would be either Weeko or Bunwich.
R: What's your advice to the gazillions of people out in the world looking at your art?
L: Haha gazillions!? Well, straight out of the mouth of The Tick, don't be a crybaby, be a TRYbaby.
