touchy-feely. Small oil paintings on chalkboards of sock puppets, each expressing a different emotion.

An idea that only could be concieved under the influence of a large amount of pain killers. Still, I like it despite myself.

That scares the shit out of me.

Interesting choice of emotions: "socially ill-at ease" and "drunkenly amourous"? The whole thing strikes me as quintessentially American.

You wouldn't by chance live in Prague, would you?

Simply brilliant. Thanks for turning me on to a new artist to watch.

Truly bizarre, and bloody marvelous as a result.

This gave me all sorts of The Parking Lot is Full and Sifl and Olly flashbacks that I would have preferred not to have had.

I'm more scared of the sort of person who purchases and subsequently hangs one of these things on their walls. Can you picture a girl and a guy meeting in a bar, the guy says, "Hey, let's go back to my place" and the girl is confronted with one of those paintings hanging over his bed.

Yes, Civil_Disobedient, I wouldn't want to see any sort of unconventional art in that sort of situation. My Goodness, no.

Great site. These are awesome. Thanks homunculus. I want a print of the mildly indignant one.

When I bring a girl home, only a picture our leader GWB hangs over my bed.

Unconventional art? Is that what you kids call it now.. I think that stuff stinks. It stinks like the cheesy sock-subject matter would stink if it'd been lying at the bottom of the laundry basket for 6 months. I don't think Civil_Disobedient is scared of unconventional art, just scared of people with bad taste.

Fantastic stuff. I liked some of her non-sock stuff better, however. In particular, I cursed when I saw that Self Portrait Post Suckerpunch was sold.

I want one! Unfortunately, between new car and increased condo assessments, it's not happening.

Sigh.

I would rather have this above my bed. The final image before sliding off to sleep with someone...
