Needle Felt Artist Brings Old Brushes Back To Life By Adding Cute Felted Animals

Published 1 year ago

Simon Brown, going under the alias of The Gentleman Felter, is a United Kingdom-based artist, who creates unique scenes by combining handmade felt animals with used old brushes. The artist lives in a small village on the Northumbrian coast which is, as the artist describes, “surrounded by castles, cats and copious amounts of tea.”

“I find old, beaten up, heavily used brushes that nobody would look twice at and bring them back to life with tiny animals stabbed to life with wool, creating whimsical pieces filled with life, curiosity, and danger,” described his work Simon. His works are incredibly cute and over 10,000 of his Instagram followers seem to agree.

Check out Simon’s amazing and unique pieces of art in the gallery below!

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
