The Lurking Sock Puppet by ursulav 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]

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 :)
