LOL! I love it! Is this entirely new? What a riot!
i like the every strands coming off the red duct tape. He looks like an old man whose eyebrows are growing uncontrollably.
Ha! i never realized the strands look like hair, that's pretty funny. Maybe I should use black duct tape.
(and tom, this was done in april 2003, maybe i'll start shooting some more of these)
You could totally make someone's day with those goofy creations. Seeing something like that on my way to work (aka hell) would've turned my frown upside down.
yah sara! If I could make that tiny little change in one person, it's so worth it... just like Tipping Point
Also, anyone please feel free to put shaky eyes in goofy places. "Eye" think we should spread the fun! Everyone has a good "eye" for where to place 'em. Just look for things resembling a nose and mouth. You'll always keep an "eye" out for new locations.
April, huh? The guy in the second picture is wearing short sleeves! Was it that warm in April? Oops~ getting off topic.
Where can you buy those googly eyes and how did you attach them to the metal post? Do they have sticky backs?
Duct tape is available in all kinds of colors ~ I say have fun!
Googly eyes are available at any craft store. This special glow-in-the-dark breed were captured at Chicago's Pearl Art Store on Chicago Ave. The eyes do not have an adhesive back, hence the usage of duct tape serves a dual purpose--funny eyebrows for the eyes, and to hold the eyes up. Wouldn't it be fun to make the eyebrows do different things.... ANGRY EYEBROWS! WORRIED EYEBROWS! NON-EMOTIONAL EYEBROWS! MONSTER TRUCKS TRUCKS TRUCKS!!!
I just found some googly eyes last night as I was reorganizing my junk. I think all the figures I make will be angry. I don't think there's enough angry googly eyed characters floating around.
By their very nature, googly eyes are happy, silly, friendly, goofy, crazy ... It would be a challenge to make them angry ... even with furrowed brows. Good luck! ;^P
I want to change the laws of gravity so the googly eyes will look up. They are always looking down, unless you shake 'em.
My niece could have SO MUCH FUN with this!!!
if you want the googly eyes to look up, then compose your face upside down.
I was fortunate enough to have actually participated with Matt in applying some sticky-back googly eyes to a glass door with a sticker representing the mouth. Unfortunately, the glare on the glass, overall lack of light, and placement of the eyes didn't permit the taking of a picture, but it was really fun anyway!!
I would say keep these up. They will make everyones day better, who sees them on the train.
I love your googly eye art!
Thanks Vera! I encourage everyone to stick googlie eyes on things and photograph 'em1
