Jankies*

Robin Schwartzman and Beau Hufford
Screen print, 2006

Schwartzman and Hufford’s whimsical soft dolls, appear to be created for monster babies. The five pieces are made of brightly colored fabric, printed with fanged, singled eyed, menacing freaky-creature expressions which are edged in fake fur. They are cuddly and creepy simultaneously. The pieces are well made and seem ready for the commercial market, this professionalism makes the Jankies stand out from the other pieces in the exhibit.
