Artist Joshua Ben Longo created a fantastic prototype back in 2013 for his cute grey monster skin rug handmade out of felt and plastic. Longo recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for materials and the production of 300 monster rugs. More behind-the-scenes and final images of his project are available to view on Kickstarter and Joshua’s Tumblr blog.
The Monster Skin Rug was born of a love of all things monsters and a passion for design. I have spent over ten years sewing, drawing, and designing monsters. Over those ten years I have exhibited around the world filling gallery spaces with critters and creatures. I hope to share this love by making the Monster Skin Rug available to you at a reasonable price while retaining the quality and details of the handmade original.
