Here is some information about the participating artists:
Tyler Poncho Toys: Plush making started as a child for Kaeti Lindquist when she began collecting stuffed animals. Constantly studying how they were made, she began recreating animals. Since she always imagined elaborate fantasy lives for the toys, she wrote and illustrated their first storybook, Tyler Poncho’s Amalgamated Menagerie. Tyler Poncho begins his journey and discovers he needs to find new friends and more adventures.
