This is the second show I’ve been in at Gallery 1988! I’m pretty stoked on it. The theme this time is “30 Years Later,” an art show based upon films from 1986. It was a hard call, as there were a lot of amazing films on that list, however in the end I went with ALIENS and created an Ellen Ripley puppet. She is an adorable little badass xenomorph expert.
Titled “Who’s Snow White?” a line uttered by another badass female character, Vasquez. Little Ripley has her asymmetrical watch, sweet red and white high top Reeboks from the future, and ammunition laden suspenders. Her t-shirt was stained with tea to give her the sweat-stained battle damage look. Her hair is made of a furry yarn that has great volume and texture to it.
The art show is at Gallery 1988 WEST is March 26, 2016 on Friday from 7-10. The show is on display though April 9th. If you are in Los Angeles, hit it up! Ripley will be for sale through Gallery 1988’s store.
If you’re into puppets, I got some more cute commissions that will be underway here soon. So keep your eyes peeled for more felty goodness.
