Favorite Creatures

on a visit to bilbao, spain, my hotel had a unique ritual. Each night, I'd find a small rubber dog, cat or sheep sitting on top of my pillow. when I asked for a few to take home, i was given a bag full of little creatures. As if Jeff Koon's massive floral puppy dog at the Guggenheim wasn't reward enough, these Mariscal-designed pets are my favorite creatures from Bilbao.
