The first collectable art plush to be kickstarted into production will be "I can haz Fairy... NOM NOM NOM". He is made from super soft minky fabric for extra cuddlyness. All of his features such as eyes and spots are embroidered, so he is safe for all ages, and with wire pose-able wings, he is extra expressive! At a large, full 12inches tall, and almost 12 inches from front to back he is the perfect size for Hugs of any type!
If the kickstarter is successful, stretch goals will be added for the other 3 baby dragons in this first run, so make sure to share this project with your friends and families!

Back in 2004 I was busy painting dragons. I had just come onto the professional market as a fantasy artist, and beautiful fairy art had just broken the market wide open. Now, unfortunately, I am not a fairy artist, but that is what everyone wanted. I contacted several companies about carrying my art, many of whom said they would carry my work if I painted fairies.
I tried... I really really tried. Just wouldn't happen.
BUT...Out of that frustration, the Little Wings Dragons were born. Baby dragons playing just a little rough with fairies...only because they don't know any better.
My first Little Wings Dragon baby was "I can haz fairy... NOM NOM NOM". Originally, it was just going to be just the one painting, but rather quickly they took over my brain, with more and more dragonlings demanding to be put into existence. From the moment I created NOM NOM NOM customers, friends and family began asking if I would make them into soft, cuddly plushies. At the time I didn't think it would be possible without being licensed to a large plush company, and though I contacted many, they really weren't interested in my work. Then came along Kickstarter. The crowd funding platform that anyone could use to share dreams and have them realized. After last years extremely successful calendar kickstarter, I decided to try my hand at a plushy one.
I scoured the internet looking for a company who could make plush in bulk orders, but still with manageable numbers. I finally found one that had beautiful quality and some great word of mouth from many other artists who have already realized their cuddly dreams.
With the help of my followers, customers, friends, family, and a voting contest that I ran in my social medias, I had the first dragon that was to become a fluffy friend. I contacted the plush company with a design, and thanks to a friend and Angel Backer, I was able to order a prototype. He went though 2 revisions and is now perfect. I am currently waiting to see the embroidery finished before I OK him and they ship him to me. Once I have the prototype in hand, Ill finish up the kickstarter details and announce the launch.
I can not even begin to put into words how excited I am for this project.
The Little Wings Dragons!
After accidentally stumbling through a circle of mushrooms in a nearby forest, the baby dragons, affectionately called Little Wings, fell into the world of the fairies. Little did they know that the seemingly simple ring of fungus was anything but simple!
They romped through this new mystical land, causing all sorts of mischief and mayhem. Running this way and that they gleefully chased the fairies all over their homeland, giggling the whole time. The baby dragons had so much fun they decided that Fairyland would be their secret place to run and play. Ever since that day, it is upon the border of Dragondom and Faeryland that the baby dragons go to frolic. Much to the dismay of the fairies!
They have gleefully given Carla their permission to paint them during their adventures, and she tries her best to capture them at the best moments possible...which is usually when they are involved in a plot, or in the thick of trouble. Despite everything though, as with children, they are able to make it through and come out on the other side unscathed, ready to start a new adventure the next day!
