Textile art by Mister Finch
Self-taught artist Mr. Finch creates animals and other objects that seem to stem from Alice’s Wonderland. Inspired by the rolling hills and mossy woods near his home in Yorkshire, Finch forms flowers, insects and birds that fascinate him with their amazing life cycles and extraordinary nests and behaviour.
He then goes hunting for vintage textiles – velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress or a vintage apron – and transforms them into all sorts of beasts and toadstools. According to Mr. Finch, his figures are “storytelling creatures for people who are also a little lost, found and forgotten”.

lmfaoooooooo i need this
I FREAKIN’ NEVER LAUGHED SO HARD OUT LOUD OVER A POST IN MY LIFE I COULDN’T EVEN CONTAIN MYSELF I SOUNDED LIKE I WAS CRYING AND MY FAMILY IS WORRIED BUT I DON’T CARE
I love Oregon so much because you can just go to Portland and go to Powells books which is just a massive bookstore with 4 floors and just stories and stories of books or you can go to one of the hundreds of food carts and get some weird food that will change your life like a burger with grilled cheese sandwiches for buns or you can go to a weird indie cafe on a wednesday night and see a band thats playing which could be hilariously terrible or shockingly good while you drink some healthy soda thats actually pretty good or maybe some turkish coffee youve never tried which took 15 minutes to make for some reason but tastes like heaven or you can go to one of their record stores and grab a random 5 dollar album from the local artists box or you can go to tao of tea which is a tea restaurant where you sit down with your friends and order tea while Nepalian music plays or go shopping at some steam punk store or go to the nickel arcade which is a blast or go to Pioneer Courthouse Square on a sunday night where in the summer they play a random movie and everyone just sits down and watches it or you can go to one of the millions of micro brewries and try new and amazing beer or ale or go see a play because theres dozens of small theatres or if you dont mind driving 30 minutes from portland you could go to Multomah Falls or go to a haunted hotel or 90 minutes away theres the beach which is crazy stupid fun and theres millions of things to do or you could go to mt hood which is like 45 minutes away from portland and you can go skiing or hiking or camping and yeah Oregon is just a blast.
