Alesha Hansard makes these wonderful creatures. I have talked with her extensively about her creatures, and what they mean to her. I collaborated with Alesha to make this image. She has painted herself interacting with her beanie babies in multiple scenes showing the beanie babies in the middle of some act with either her hand or foot in the image to show her presence. I recreated her artwork in my own style from the perspective of Alesha sitting on the floor interacting with her soft family.
