look at the happy, magical pincushions, brooches and more that have flown out of the mind of talented spanish artist kima and into her kup kup land. the vignettes are a wee 19 cm x 14 cm (7.5″ x 5.5″).

i frequently daydream about being a fairy or a gnome and living under a tall flower in the forest, and this is one of those times…

wait – hold on a minute – i’m snapping out of it to show you her slightly melancholic and disturbing acrylic, pencil and ink illustrations!

    Kup Kup Land is such whimsical fun! It never ceases to amaze me how creative and imaginative people can be. Who else would have thought to create a whole fairyland on a pin cushion? Not me. Oooo, I’d love to be a fairy there though. My mom used to leave me little notes written in very tiny handwriting pretending to be my fairy pen pal, when I was about 7. I think I knew it was her all along, but the pretending was almost as fun as if I had a real fairy friend.
