The Biography & Work of:
The Soreheads
Location: West Hollywood, CA
Web: thesoreheads.com
Bio: A "Sorehead" is defined as "one who is peevish or disgruntled or one who is easily offended, annoyed or angered," so it is no surprise that the characters that became "The Soreheads" were born as an expression of the pent-up aggravations of life: Parking tickets, road rage, traffic, inflation, ignorance, control freaks and the annoyance of being forced to comply with pointless rules, sparked the lives of personalities who could speak artist Vanessa Matthews' suppressed language. Matthews' early paintings and drawings on napkins and post-it notes were ultimately brought to life with her business partner Nancy Mancini as soft sculptures known as "The Soreheads." Matthews and Mancini, both having said goodbye to former careers in the film & television industries, left for Austin, Texas armed with drawings of the characters and worked tirelessly to see the 2D illustrations spring into 3D in the form of 5 individual plush personalities. Matthews and Mancini then designed over one hundred one-of-a-kind Soreheads plush individually in their Los Angeles studio, scouring downtown warehouses and vintage stores for the most unique materials to render the handmade creations to life.
