I’m an artist who loves all things retro, particularly stuff from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. I was inspired by the R&W Berrie, C.M. Paula, and American Greetings figurines, so I made these statuettes–which take that idea further by adding color (most of the 70s figurines were monochromatic). The gag comes from an old joke about a guy who loosened a screw in his navel, and his butt fell off!
I made these for charity. Lovingly. Painstakingly. With no profit for myself (I contributed my own funds in order to create them, so I’m losing money). The statuettes are cast in Hydrocal and hand painted. Although they are not for sale, they are available as free gifts (while the fundraising campaign lasts) when you donate to the non-profit organization, Xerocraft.org:
All proceeds go towards renovation of Xerocraft’s new makerspace, in which people in the local community of Tucson, AZ can learn to make their own creations.
