Cultured Critter Collective

Valerie G

The Cultured Critter Collective is home to unique monsters, animals, and other fun creatures. All of my pieces are handmade (urban vinyl art toys are personally customized by hand), and one-of-a-kind. In case you were wondering- the critters are always on the look-out for cool people to take them home!  2D art:
