Brainiac polymer

Qixuan Lim's art keeps you guessing and learning on PolymerClayDaily.com

Polymer brainiac Qixuan Lim (QimmyShimmy) is not your average polymer artist. She calls herself an accidental sculptor. Her subject matter may make you squirm. Here she is on Instagram.

She’s an art school grad and designer-by-day from Singapore, currently based in the Netherlands.

I don’t understand but I can’t stay away. I pore over her works to figure out how the brain of this 25-year-old talent works. I happily add her to PCD’s mixed bag of artists.

We’ll be look at more oddities on StudioMojo tomorrow. Plus I’m moving studios so I’m knee-deep in organizing and learning how other artists pare down their supplies to make room for new ideas. Join us!

Lazy Monday

Lazy on PCDaily

Until 2010 Leah Lazy was a full-time cake decorator. Her customers wanted to keep her gum-paste characters so she switched to polymer and developed her line of monsters called Little Lazies.

Zombie kitties, pandas, bears and other beasts – all the colorful characters on this Virginia artist’s pages have colorfully bandaged owies.

It’s hard to feel threatened by an injured turquoise guy with a purple tongue, especially when you’ve seen him deconstructed. Leah makes her process seem deceptively simple.

Creating endearing expressions, consistently smooth finishes and colors that grab – those tricks take patience, skill and a real love of monsters. Witness Leah’s work on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Etsy.

Monday dragons

Busanca on PCDaily

These Monday dragons are from Alessio Busanca, an illustrator from Sardinia who picked up polymer as his primary medium in 2010. His small sculptures combine influences from American comics and Japanese manga. His dragons may be his most popular series and he sells them on Ebay.

His Pinterest page has the most up-to-date offerings. I also tracked him down on Facebook, DeviantArt, Twitter and Instagram. It’s worth the hunt to research his endearing miniatures. His pop culture characters, horror show stars and fanart creatures are packed with an endless variety of personalities and styles.
