In previous posts, I've talked about Mr. Larry's involvement in the low-brow art movement as a photographer. Many of the movement's current artists have hired Larry to photograph their work. Larry's photographic transparencies are later used for the print media or to reproduce giclees (fine art prints of paintings). One of our favorite artists, Joe Vaux, dropped off a few paintings for Larry to photograph the other day. I love being able to see these works before the general public gets to see them. Joe's artwork is wild. He makes up all of these crazy characters. By day, Joe works for a network animated show creating storyboards. By night, he paints these incredible, other-worldly pieces. After seeing Joe's latest work, I was inspired to crochet a little monster for him. Meet Googie, my crazy, wild little creature, inspired by Vaux's work!
Googie is another procrastination project! It took me about 3 hours to complete him. From ear-tip to toe, Googie is eight inches tall. His body is about three inches wide. He was fun to create from scrap acrylic yarn as a summer night distraction.
