I just wanted to tell you how amazed I am by your huge assortment of pipe cleaner action figures.  I recently purchased a secondhand giant pipe cleaners and plastic pieces modeling set (it's sort of like Mr. Potato Head except with pipe cleaners instead of a plastic potato) and I discovered your work after doing a search trying to identify who the manufacturer of said kit was.  I've noticed pipe cleaner figures made by other people from time-to-time over the years, but your body of work is by far the most impressive collection I've ever seen (it helps that you obviously like a lot of the same video games that I do too).  Keep it up and never lose your artistic passion!

I love your chenille dolls. I work in a similar medium (poms and felt with some chenille). Would you mind sharing your techniques?
