I work a lot so sometimes I'm late to the party when it comes to new things. I had seen these guys before and said to myself "oh, I should write about those" and then I went and scooped cat litter and forgot all about what I was going to do. I have a gentle helping of the ADHD but I finally have gotten around to tell you about Zukies.
Zukies are the creation of artist Alison Perez who basically uses every material she can find to bring these critters to life.
And for those of you that fancy yourself artists, there will soon be a DIY Zukie for you to customize. These are slated to be available in May and I'll have more info on them soon.
