'The Critic' scared the hell out of many unsuspecting customers as they entered into my papier mache studio and gallery in Ocean Shores, WA.
I attached a full length mirror to the wall so people could see that this was not a real guy! I was thinking of wiring up the arm to make it twitch on command (remotely) but decided it might give someone a heart attack.
Most people will patiently wait for the man standing in front of the modern art painting to leave so they can take a look. After noticing that this guy just isn't moving, they cautiously edge closer to discover - usually with loud laughter - that they've 'been had!' The Mad Artist is coming out of the painting, holding the well-dressed (full sized) man off the floor, by his neck. Scroll down to read the brochure that The Critic is holding.
'The Critic' is now enjoying a permanent home in Sedona WA. Lucky bastard!
