Al Heighton’s High Vis Jim

al-heighton-plush

It’s always great to see an illustrator’s work spread out into new mediums and go in new directions, and Al Heighton fired us over a pic of his new venture into plush toys. Stitched together by the talented Emma Smart, who took one of Al’s existing drawings and turned it into what you see above! The characters are High Vis Jim and Brew the dog, and it definitely looks like a real life version of one of Al’s illustrations. Well done guys, it turned out grand!
