Charmingly bewildered animals are the subject of choice for UK artist Lindsey Thomas.
The London-based artist carefully felts wool to shape pudgy animals with plaintive expressions that belie their cartoony cuteness and party-ready accessories.
Wide-eyed bears ride tricycles with balloons and a donkey with strong side-eye sports a flamingo pool floaty.
Thomas graduated from Middlesex University with a degree in illustration, where she also experimented with mixed media.
In an artist statement on her website, Thomas explains, “As a child, I was forever drawing animals and imagining what they would be like if they could peel themselves from the paper. Now I know!”
