Stumpytown characters are the work of Redmond, Washington's Karin Yamagiwa Madan. Madan is an Etsy artist who makes, as she says, 'things and stuff.' In March, the Etsy artist made some Severed-Hand Keychains and Tempura Shrimp Keychain Bento Boxes for Seattle's Emerald City ComicCon.
Karin Madan's Stumpytown characters aren't limited to shrimp and body parts. They include strange, cute creatures like the accident-prone Manx Kitty that has only one front leg, Stumpy Henchmen--masked super-heroes with little wings--and a one-of-a-kind Heart Gone Rogue kitty whose heart is worn outside of its body.
