Jungle Butterflies

These are an offshoot of my flower pin collection, a selection of butterflies that were all Made In W Germany. I have about 45 of these German butterflies in varying colors, textures, designs, shapes, and sizes. The blue and orange one in the center-right has chunks of clear plastic/Lucite glued on top of the metal (one of two that I have with that “enhancement”).

    Wow, so perfect! It also dawned on me yesterday that I hadn’t painted or animated any butterflies for the Pomplamoose with Allee Willis “Jungle Animal” release. So that was one of the things on my list today. I’m just going to sit here and stare at this post and knock a few of these beauties out, all of which are gorgeous.

    How fragile are these? Do you wear them?

    (The AWMOK Jungle Animal Petting Zoo is a scenic attraction whose cages are currently being filled to coincide with the release of the upcoming Pomplamoose with Allee Willis “Jungle Animal” VideoSong and online music game and contest. Jungle tamer, AWMOK creator, curator and charming hostess, Allee Willis, me, will be steadily leading jungle animals to their cages over the next 1-2 months or so as you bring them here until the song is released. If ever there ever was a category that was primed to be kitschified it’s that of “Jungle Animal” as all the stripes, spots and fur have been inspiration for designers since the beginning of time. I thank you all in advance for placing your jungle pets in such an illustrious cage as The Allee Willis Museum of Kitsch. Keep them coming!)
