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.
