The Lurking Sock Puppet

By ursulav

Another quick and silly little doodle, 5 x 7, for a con. I have this thing for sock puppets. I dunno what. I find them a little...off.

They say all art is autobiographical, and if I were a sea serpent, and if sea serpents somehow wore socks despite their lack of feet, and if I then discovered that some unscrupulous individual had shoved a sock puppet on my tail, I daresay I might react somewhat like that. Maybe.

Okay, that's a lot of 'if's.

Anyway, as always, prints available 'n stuff at [link]

Lately Ive been going through a bit of a creative block. I didnt know what to draw, paint, or sculpt. I can here to look to others for inspiration. I looked through very well done and fancy paintings. I didnt feel anything wile looking at them. I felt a little bored. Dont get me wrong, they were beautiful and clearly a lot of hard work when into them, but the second I looked at your creation I couldn't help smiling. Your concept and reasoning behind it is truly funny and original. It was refreshing to look at this piece. I don't think I've ever been more inspired by any other work. Thank you and well done.

Absolutely one of my favorite pieces of your work since I saw it a few years ago! Your newer piece The Hermit brought me around again to your work. My, my, my, you've just gotten better and better! I'm thrilled to have a link on my favorites to your work. I just want everyone to see your work!

Hahahahahaha, this made me laugh out loud--which I really needed right now--so thank you :D  I like the simplicity of this and the bright colors--the exaggerated big eyes and gaping yell on the "sea monster" are great, and the tongue on the sock puppet is a hilarious little detail. I also love how the sock puppet is positioned--the way it's slouched makes it look totally chill and casual, which makes the extreme reaction of the sea monster all the funnier. It's funny to think about monsters being frightened by mundane things. Very clever piece of art :)
