Just a quick post to let any SoCal people know that Adam has a new sculpture in a show at the Metropolitan Museum in Riverside California. The opening is tonight from 6-9pm. So catch those debates tomorrow on youtube and come say hi!
The show will be up through next year so if you don't make it tonight I forgive you.
*The cryptid sculptures that Adam & I made for the New York show at Apex gallery were a last minute addition to this show.

I have had many fixations in my life but miniature golf or putt putt has a very special place in my heart and has always created a stir within me since I was a child. Those animal statues, wind mills, castles and gingerbread houses, look like large scale folk art sculptures or scaled down roadside attractions. Several of these courses had elaborate water features and landscaping which only added to the magical effect it had on me. Most courses these days have rides, water slides, batting cages, go karts and arcades, functioning as a kind of poor mans

As an adult while traveling the Interstate 5 N. bound (somewhere between the Los Feliz exit and the 134 interchange) I noticed that the cat faces were no longer visible. I wondered if they still even existed. To my surprise many have been painted over and some have mysteriously reappeared in a more modern graffiti style. The Cat faces are fascinating to me and are an example of a collective of random and anonymous individuals working in a sort of spontaneous artistic collaboration that has created what I consider to be great American folk art. ~Adam

To blow up those long balloons manually is next to impossible unless you have runner’s lungs. I had to use a hand pump and felt like a complete loser.
The concept to making balloon sculpture is simple but the application is not. Balloon sculpture isn’t limited to simple dog and bunny shapes but can be almost infinite in its complexity if one has the imagination to push the limits.

I love this little sculpture that Adam made so much. I convinced him to start making them to sell.
The photography for his sculptures are a little hard, especially since I am not a photographer. They really look so much better in person.
We did a two person show a quite a few years ago called "Seamonsters See Monsters" which was probably the start of my obsession with mythical sea creatures.

Isn't it great!?! We hope to collect more artist made cryptids soon.
I recently rediscovered Mold-A-Ramas. I haven’t thought about them since the age of 9. They’re plastic figurines molded right before your eyes by a vending machine that looks like it could be right of a 1950’s sci-fi movie. Mold-A-Rama machines were usually located in zoos, museums, and theme parks. They produced all types of figurines, most were animals and dinosaurs but there were various mechanical themes as well, which included a steam locomotive, a submarine, a battleship and the space shuttle. These injection molding machines were developed in the mid 1950’s. Some Mold-A-Rama’s are still in use today, kept alive by inventive technicians creating parts by hand and hardware store acquisitions.
Here's a video of a Mold-A-Rama in action:

Our silly little magnets and pins are being carried at stars and infinite darkness!
See the friendly jackalope peering out at you?
This is super exciting for me especially since I found them back when they were called Virgin Threads, way before I had ever even heard of the beloved Etsy.com
