About My Design

Esk is an earth spirit... various plants grow from its body, live their life, then decay and give way to new plants. Esk can be home to nearly any kind of plant, and to demonstrate that i designed this figurine to allow you to place small twigs or flowers into the two openings on the back... that way your Esk figurine is always changing, just like the character itself.

this is a really cool creature !

I love this design; so original and cool. I do very much enjoy the way you turned your design into a product; the live plant holder was a cool touch. I do agree with a lot of others when I say it would be a bit better if it grew plants from seeds. I would so buy it if I had that kind of money.
Lucianthinus commented on 13th Oct 2010 (Report Spam)
The minute I have money I definitely want to get one of these :) It was so awesome to see it in person at NYCC :D

The character is very intriguing, and to see Esk as a figure is really neat! Love the "vase" idea.

This is such a neat character
astroskink commented on 2nd Jan 2010 (Report Spam)
Lovely.
Silence commented on 25th Dec 2009 (Report Spam)
Cool, but I think it could be cooler if the figurine was hollow so you could plant real seeds and bonsai.
Kaisa commented on 21st Dec 2009 (Report Spam)
Stunning... This would fit fantastically in my room. 5 stars from me.
TerrellzToonz commented on 26th Nov 2009 (Report Spam)
He's neat, but agree with Sterling--this could be sweet as a planter :)
CentralOrbit commented on 19th Nov 2009 (Report Spam)
I love the design and concept! The placement of the two plants (and possibly the limitation to two plants) seems unbalanced somehow, though.
XGriffin commented on 17th Nov 2009 (Report Spam)
So cool!! I wish I could grow real plants in it but I have a very brown thumb so fake plants it is.
PaperFox commented on 14th Nov 2009 (Report Spam)
Love the incorporation of real plants! also a beautiful character!
Sterling commented on 5th Nov 2009 (Report Spam)
I think the next design should be Esk as a planting pot :) So you can plant seeds and watch them grow I LOVE this idea though! <3
dimentichi commented on 29th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
I love Esk!
Rabids commented on 19th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
I think it would be pretty cool if she was altered so that you can plant seedlings in her and watch them grow - like those "grass heads" we made in school.

beautiful design, I would love to have one to decorate my room

Esk is awesome sauce :D
Rae commented on 16th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
I've loved this fellow since I first laid eyes on Esk. A wonderful example of simple design elements used in a powerful way. I also like the idea of being able to change-out the plants.
Chenneoue commented on 15th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
YAY Esk! You need to have one done of your Dire wolf character! :)
Leopreston commented on 14th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
So gorgeous and unusual! The little plants are such an interesting touch!
iatro commented on 13th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
love the idea of having holes in his back, would be neat to see him with some little flowers or something too!
Tazrandus commented on 13th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
Very original, I love the clever idea of the little plants
rizen commented on 12th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
I love plant idea; amazing character ;}
Katmomma commented on 12th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
Absolutely stunning and beautiful! Your concepts have always intrigued me. I really hope to see this on demand! 5 outta 5!
samotage commented on 11th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
the idea of adding your own twigs/flowers is fascinating, adds a DIY touch that lends to the design's appeal :3

I just wonder if the holes will be big enough to keep water in there too-- so the poor plucked flowers can last a little longer C:

I would absolutely buy this if the cost were fair. I've long been a fan of the character, and love this concept.
Shiroi commented on 9th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
Though you've been going through hard times you're a wonderful and inspiring artist and I love your work. I mean this from the bottom of my heart. And if your figure is made I will buy it without a doubt. Esk is a beautiful character and I love how the design for this really accents that he is a part of nature more than the average animal. Good luck kesame.
Wyla commented on 9th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
Love it <3
saoirse commented on 8th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
A beautiful concept from a beautiful artist of her beautiful character. I love it. GO ESK!
Piko commented on 8th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
This idea is different than others, because it incorporates a real element into the character by allowing people to put plants and other plant material on the back of it.
invisibleink commented on 7th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
A 5 from me - obviously lol xx
KTBlitzy commented on 7th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
Esk is one of the coolest and most original characters out there, I would be more than glad (and super excited) to buy one!!! Love how you made it like a plant holder type of idea.
Painted Cricket commented on 7th Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
Even if I can't buy it, I would. Even if I have to borrow. Esk will always be a favorite, even if Sullivan wolf is my first.

SchonerKunstler commented on 2nd Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
I love the idea of being able to "plant" litle plants in Esk. It suits the character so well, and would be a really neet way of displaying something like a vine.

backwards-romeo commented on 1st Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
So awesome! I almost want a plush because of the tail. I imagine it would be so soft and silky :3 But I think a figurine would suit the awesomeness more.

Synchra commented on 1st Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
I love this idea!! It would be cool to make toy accessories later separate from it that would eb able to be inserted into the holes. Sort of like the large assortment of food that came with my zim toys. haha.

Ie. Little mushrooms, trees, etc. That would rock.

I also think people are forgetting about the amazing skill of the patch together sculptor! CHECK OUT THE PT PORTFOLIO GUYS, this can DEFINITLY be done. This is a really awesome completely orginal idea.

I have also always loved this character. This is a DEFINITE buy for me.

Beautiful idea and character. This would look so good on my window sill. To be honest, this is the first time I've actually wanted to buy a toy design from here... !!
Sadarius-Wolf commented on 1st Oct 2009 (Report Spam)
This concept is a magnificent combination of wonder and beauty. Its a fantastic representation of character development in the way it combines the beauty of Esk and the practicality of the design based on the essence behind the character. It also shows the advanced artistic development that occurs when bringing a character full circle into a manifestation of its meaning. This is a great figurine for those who know Kesame's work, as well as a wonderful introduction to those who do not or are just getting to know Kesame. I hope to have the tone, awe and overall magnificence that Esk brings in my life soon via this beautiful design.
