The Doctor Is In - Gessica's Doctor Flop

Italian artist Gessica wrote in to introduce us to a little world she has been showing through exhibitions in Italy; one of medical malpractice and malady. Doctor Flop and its cast of little sculptural and printed patients and nurses have exhibited Arte Fiera 2013 and Leo Burnett's ADV Company Gallery in Bologna and Milan.
Her adorable world of little unfortunates feels well-suited to art toys, and has a hand-crafted appeal. The narratives for these characters are likely to develop along on Doctor Flop's Facebook and continue to be documented on pinterest. If you have questions or inquiries about these little people and their stories, you're welcome to contact

Baby Hemlock by Loz Hausofboz

You hardly see a custom Tokidoki Unicorno, but have to say that we should see more customs on this platform when I look at this excellent custom from Loz.

If you ever find yourself in the misty forests, near the bubbling bogs, or the steamy swamps, there's a chance you'll catch a glimpse of Baby Hemlock.
She's one of the last few surviving unicorns, and keeps herself hidden among the most quiet and overgrown parts of the woodland, singing songs and playing with the other animals.

If get lost out there, she can tell you which plants are safe to eat, but don't expect a ride back to town though. She'll bring you out in terrible toxic blisters with a touch.

Baby Hemlock is a custom Tokidoki Unicorno, with hand sculpted parts and fine acrylic and gloss paintwork, with UV resistant finish.
