I love the work of Horrible Adorables. How can you not when you look at their animal creations, what with their big eyes and felt layered like dragon scales. In fact their critters are so cool that they've kinda made other animals look like they've dropped the evolutionary ball. As if making squirrels look like they're not even trying to be cute anymore wasn't enough, now their creatures are going on epic adventures.
Petite Tales (or Tiny Tales for those of you who treated French class as a way to meet girls and not a cultural experience) is their latest show on view right now at Art Star in Philadelphia and features their whimsical creatures living life to the fullest. Whether meeting mermaids while on a Viking raid, or communicating with the dead in the gosh dang cutest seance you've ever seen, each display is packed full of their signature designs doing all the cool stuff you wish you could right now. Fear not though, as you don't have to quit your job to go out and have all the fun they are, because you can bring that fun right into your own home. All of the pieces from the show are available right now at www.artstarphilly.com and if you find yourself in the greater Philadelphia metropolitan area you should really go and see them in person. If not, you can check out some of the pictures I took and live vicariously through the wonderment of photography.
