    Starting up a thread for these wonderfully bizarre and charismatic creations from Kani Sofubi (カニソフビ) who I first became aware of via @animator. To be honest I don't know much about the creator except they have a thing for ocean life and make these in small runs.

    Theres a great array of drawings, process photos and more on their site which I definitely recommend checking out: https://www.kanisofubi.net or on Twitter which seems to be updated more frequently: https://twitter.com/hedora83

    Here are the 4 creatures I've had the opportunity to adopt and they have become some of my favorites to look at with their charming, loose sculpts and humor filled detail.

    Thank you for the info! I missed them when a whole pod of them popped up on Mandarake. Good to see they went to a good home. Love those colors and the whimsy, will keep hunting! :)
