Pipe-Cleaner Critters by Lauren Ryan
One time I made a fork (or maybe it was a trident, though I never killed anyone with it) out of pipe-cleaners and I never shut up about it for years. Lauren puts most pitiful homemade creations to shame with her lifelike pipe-cleaner creatures, who despite their artificial nature, possess that game-changing fuzziness that makes them so realistic and pettable. I still like my fork, but I actually feel like her animals may attempt to eat me at any moment.
Come with me, Sir!
