Dear New Frand,
Hallo! I'm Jessica, the derpy artist & human bean behind all of these potatoes. I thrive on happy colors, fully loaded baked potatoes, and friendship.
It sounds silly, but ever since I was a kid, I've loved potatoes and unicorns. When I doodled unicorns throughout the years, they slowly grew rounder and rounder... and so the Potatocorn was born. I named him Sir Walter Flufflebottoms, and drew him into every random situation that allowed for it. I dreamed of creating a "unicorn store" but thought it'd be much too silly to pursue... Until one summer, when I learned how important it is to use our unique perspective and our unique ideas to make the world a better place. I figured that maybe wholesomeness and potatoes could be my way of making the world just a little bit brighter.
In July of 2016, I took a leap and shared a drawing of Sir Walter Flufflebottoms the Potatocorn online for the first time. It was nerve-wracking, but it was a beginning! A few months later, in December, I opened up this online shop with a very humble collection of 10 vinyl stickers. As time passed, I constantly searched for new ways to make people smile - with a Kickstarter, with new products, with conventions, and more. Cuddly Potatoes has grown so much, it's hard to believe it all started with nothing but a blank sheet of notebook paper.
A few times throughout the year, my wonderfully supportive partner Stanley and I appear at conventions in Northern California! Again, follow us on instagram and subscribe to PotatoMail to hear about our next convention.
