So, I have a love for opossum and after looking at the squishables that already exist, I though a round opossum would be funny and adorable. I feel as if they all also underrated animals. They are the only marsupials found in the US and Canada, which basically means they have a little pouch. They are such adorable creatures. They have whiskers, but I left them out of the design because I thought they'd be annoying if you wanted to snuggle it. Smiling Sammy is what my dad calls every opossum, so I thought it'd be a good name for this. This could be the closest I will ever get to owning a real opossum.
About the Designer:
Hello, my name is Katherine. I'm autistic and opossums are one of my special interests. I also have Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) which is also known as Brittle Bone Desease. I have always loved art due to the fact that I had to sit out during sports at school, and I needed something to do. I plan on going to art school in the near future. I really wanna use my art to show young and even older autistic people that they can do what they want in life, and basically to be themselves regardless of what other people think of them. My art is all over the place, and I don't really have a specific medium that I prefer. I don't care if my art is the best I'm mainly just trying to have fun!
