Making Enky's the Art of Enkydu

I've been working on Enky's for the last few week during the night. My sewing machine has been working non-stop as well. I made so many Enky's and I'm very tired, but it was awesome experience working and finishing my plush toys. It was pretty awesome weekend as well having Free Comic Book Day on Saturday and Mothers Day on Sunday. I went to the Golden Apple and Meltdown Comics on Saturday and got myself some cool comics and autographs.
This is me and David Peterson creator and Artist of Mouse Guard great guy and awesome art work so good to see some traditional drawing still happening in the comic book world. This was at Meltdown comics which also had some of the Dark Crystal puppets on Display.
At the Golden Apple they where giving away Green Lantern Rings and hot dogs which made waiting in line extra fun. I also got myself some $1 dollar comic.
This is me and Rorschach in front of the Golden Apple before we took off to Meltdown Comics. I wish I could had gone to all the Comic Book shops on Saturday but with Gas being crazy expensive it these where the closest comic books shops near my house.
 Like I was saying earlier I've been staying up all night sewing and finishing my Enky's Here are a few pictures of the process. I have a pattern that I use to trace on the fleece then cut all the pieces out and get them ready to  sew. It's a long process that I've been getting faster and faster at. A few nights ago my Sewing Machine got busted and slowed down I took it apart and oiled everything but I don't have the speed I used to have. So if anyone out there knows anybody that can fix sewing machines give me a shout out at I need to fix it because its my lively hood right now. So thanks to anyone that can help me out. In lighter news you can now purchase the Enky's that I made at the four different location.

Lucha Enky's have always been my favorite to make and one thing that has been difficult to use is the vinyl for the mask design. Most people always ask me how I'm able to sew them on so here is my little secret I put tracing paper on top of vinyl and sew right through it. It makes it easier and the tracing paper tears away easily without damaging anything. These wonderful Enky's are for sale at Monkey House Toys.
