“I took some fabric, took some clay, sculpted the little face, put it all together and made this little forest creature, which I thought was pretty cool.”

Hookham thought the doll would be her first and last until she put it on social media and people became interested in buying her creation.

“I made two more and put them in my shop that I had at the time and after a few weeks, they sold out. I’ve never had that happen, for something so original,” Hookham said.

The creatures name, ‘Eezoes’ was born after talking to his friend, who can speak many different languages. Together, Hookham and his friend mixed up several ways of saying ‘moss’ in different languages ​​and came up with ‘Eezoes.’

“So, then the species of Eezoes were created, and then I started making more, and making more, and then they started selling faster and people were messaging me, asking about them ,” Hookham said.

Hookham combines real-life animal elements with his own fantasy ideas to create the unique look of Eezoes creations.

The creations have taken on a life of their own, with a book in the works, and a soon-to-be-released coloring book.

“I started to come up with different stories and scenarios where these creatures were. I started to come up with things that other people would be interested in because not everyone is interested in collecting art dolls,” Hookham said.

Hookham said, at some point, he would like to go into creating comics or animated shows with the creatures of the World of Eezoes.

His works of art can be seen on his social media accounts including Instagram and Facebook.
