When I happened upon the Etsy shop called Boopsie Daisy I did a full-on double-take, and then another. Then I literally doubled over laughing. How can I express the absolute joy, retro-kitsch, colorful silliness that is the work of Missy Munday of Kelowna, British Columbia. It’s like some wonderful childhood dream, enchanted little dolls and creatures playing with everyday objects all on their own. It may seem to be utter silliness, but there is some serious skill involved in the astonishing Fine Art Prints created by Missy. Pay attention to the names of each print, they are just as brilliantly strange as the image itself.
Toys and characters that are so familiar juxtaposed with elements of nature, foodstuffs, and a myriad of pop-culture references make for a purely fun experience. Eye-popping colour and perfected lighting techniques make for the most amazing captures. Some images are cute in there Kawaii kitschy-ness, others are evocative in their Sad-Eyed Style. Then there are the images that seem to have vaguely hidden cultural commentary running through them, making them a tad bit disturbing. Missy’s work is simply spectacular.
All in all, the body of work displayed by Missy Munday is incredible. I can only image what her studio must look like, and how much fun she has combining crazy elements to create her day-glow bright visual feasts. With close to 300 items in her shop, Boopsie Daisy on Etsy, I can only show you a very tiny sample of her wonderfully weird work. Her Fine Art Prints feature all the elements I love in strange and odd creations, and some I didn’t even know I would like until I saw them.
Make sure you visit Missy’s shop, Boopsie Daisy, and browse her work. You will laugh, you will do the double-take, and you will more then likely find a favorite from among her marvelously weird fantasy works. Priced from just $4.00 USD for an ACEO Sized Image [Artist Trading Card] to $55.00 USD for a Trio Set of 8″x12″ Prints, there is something for every budget.
Missy will create custom listings for you if the image you want is not listed in the size you are looking for, so just drop her a note. What a wonderful gift these prints would make for that oh so hard to buy for friend. You know this is one gift they will never forget. Oh how I love these Saturday posts. Have a strange and wonderful day.
