InThe biggest kick I ever got… was doing a thing called the Crocodile Rock…

A little kitschy highway art…made from striped barrels and orange traffic cones…
Someone probably had enough time to make this while waiting in traffic…..smile..

    I usually hate stuff that looks like this, tragic victim of 80s style art, but this is such creative use of traffic related paraphernalia I have to give it props. Really great.

    Where does this sit? Was it an installation? The brick will and dirt against it look Photoshoped in but as I can see your shadow (or whoever took the picture) I can’t hazard a firm guess.

    (The AWMOK Jungle Animal Petting Zoo is a scenic attraction whose cages are currently being filled to coincide with the release of the upcoming Pomplamoose with Allee Willis “Jungle Animal” VideoSong and online music game and contest. Jungle tamer, AWMOK creator, curator and charming hostess, Allee Willis, me, will be steadily leading jungle animals to their cages over the next 1-2 months or so as you bring them here until the song is released. If ever there ever was a category that was primed to be kitschified it’s that of “Jungle Animal” as all the stripes, spots and fur have been inspiration for designers since the beginning of time. I thank you all in advance for placing your jungle pets in such an illustrious cage as The Allee Willis Museum of Kitsch. Keep them com

    Thanks…It was a found photo… I only wish it crawled out of one of the many local highway construction sights…
    I was looking for a jungle alligator…and discovered alligators don’t come from the jungle but the crocodile does???
    Thanks again, thought he was kinda cool…wish I owned the stripe barrel/orange cone business…smile

      Had no idea about the different habitats for alligators and crocodiles. Well, this traffic cone alligator/crocodile – I’ve never actually known the difference between the two – has a permanent home here in the Jungle Animal Petting Zoo.

      Hi,

      I work for a traffic safety company and I’m working on a blog post about artwork made from traffic products. I’d love to feature this image.

      In exchange for your permission, I can give you a link back to your personal blog or elsewhere in return.

      Thanks!

    Hi,

    I think that it’s quite important (and honest) to quote the artist BIBI http://www.bibi.fr/en .
    He performed a crocodile with traffic cones in 2003.
    http://bibi.fr/en/en-bibi-crocodiles7.html

    He has created the urban hunting with traffic cones in 2001.
    Let’s talk about the first ones !
