Artist John Murphy started making little stuffed monsters called Stupid Creatures back in 2003 as an outlet for his off-the-wall ingenuity and a way to pay his bills. He eventually wrote a how-to book on making lovably hideous creatures from socks, and now he's back with a follow-up, "Return of the Stupid Sock Creatures: Evolutions, Mutations and Other Creations."
He covers the basics of creature-making in an unintimidating style, so budding sock artists will be equipped to take on the projects in the book or branch out with their own brand of eccentricity. "Return of the Stupid Sock Creatures" is published by Lark Crafts and sells for $17.95 in softcover.
