Planeta Amigurumi has posted some fabulous creations on Flickr. I especially like her use of fairly simple shapes to create very striking and lovely effects. No need to be overly elaborate when the work itself is done so well and the designs are so striking. Not to say that I don't like some of the elaborately detailed amigurumi I've seen with accessories, etc., but these are striking in their relative simplicity. I'm enjoying them both from an "oooh, amigurumi, cute!" perspective and an "oooh, artistic and minimalist" perspective.
