needle felting

For an incredibly kawaii series entitled Invertebrate Sleep Habits, Japanese artist Hiné Mizushima (previously featured here) created this awesomely cute octet of needle felted sea creatures, each of which is tucked into an adorable little bed.

They were created for In The Palm of Your Hand, the January 2014 art exhibition at the EMP Collective in Baltimore, Maryland.

It has been far too long since we last caught up with the kawaii needle-felted creations of Vancouver, BC-based artist Hiné Mizushima (previously featured here). Not only is she still hard a work making the world a cuter place one colorful felt invertebrate at a time, Mizushima also ups the kawaii exponentially by sometimes making gifs of her creatures:
