My first piece of merchandise ever: It’s Pling, the mouse from the recently released comic booklet TanimaL! He turned out much better than I expected actually. They said he’d be a “beanie bag”, so I pictured some sort of baggy unshapely thing, but this is actually quite like the cartoon. I always dreamed of having 3D merchandise versions of my characters. Maybe not mice. Maybe more kind of action figure characters. But anyhow, this is not a bad start. I hope Abigail – who made the original drawing – is as happy with Pling the Toy as I am. Here he is with the rest of the family: Mubarak, Dark Dude, The Thumb and Sir Edgar Alan Poe.
