So…. I had this idea to make lots of Dylans and photograph them all, to try to replicate the LP covers. It never quite happened because I made a lot… Too many, really, and they were never all completed.
I never thought anything would happen to them, but I have been finishing them all to coincide with the Danile Kramer photography exhibition at SNAP Galleries.
Can you spot them all?
Yesterday I also dropped off two more folky Bobs. I think these two are my favorites… of and Nashville Skyline Bob because of his guitar.
So, It was Saturday night. Bowling Night for the Big Lebowski guys. Well, every night is bowling night unless you are chasing down Nihilists or hanging out with Maud.
At the Bowling lanes…….With Jesus, Donny, Walter & The Dude! Drinks first…….
Then admiring some memorabilia….
OK….Now the sound of The Eagles Hotel California, Mexican Style because the Jesus just bowled a killer Strike!!!
Walter looks worried!!
He takes it out on Donny!
In the meantime The Dude has on of his acid flashbacks….an enormous rack of huge bowling shoes!!
They take a break and sit down…….
But not for too long……
OK…. One more Bob done!!!
I finished this Highway 61 Bob last light. I’m going out to night to see Sid Griffin, so I thought I need to to introduce a new Bob! He’s met Jack Fate twice already.
I tried to get the detail right for the Triumph Motorcycle T-shirt!
Next step.. try to set up to photograph the LP cover. I’m sure I can use a Blythe doll to stand at the back holding a camera.
I have so many more to finish but they are all really close. Mainly just needing hair!
I have a feeling these might all need to stay with Jane Fate in Germany for a while & I need to stop making these… because it makes me feel like a crazy person!
Hey…. I’m thinking about doing a special on these Rolling Thunder/Desire Bobs.
Please get in touch if interested & we can work something out….. firstname.lastname@example.org
I have just today completed three more Jack Fates. That’s Bob Dylan’s ‘Masked and Anonymous’ character form on 2003 film.
These are all ready to post now in time for Christmas.
You will get…
Miniature Replica guitar (black Fender telecaster)
Adjustable Guitar strap
Certificate, signed and numbered
These are all numbered limited editions and these three are numbers eleven to thirteen. Each doll takes around 8 to 10 hours to complete. They have a strong wire frame inside which means that it’s very easy for him to stand up by himself and his arms can easily be moved around to strum the guitar.
I am asking £90 for each doll, plus postage depending on where he’s travelling to.
Interested.. maybe? Please send an email to Liz email@example.com
These guys need to find good homes!
I’m a big fan on Neil Young so I really enjoyed making this one! It’s the Buffalo Springfield Era… So many great songwriters in that band! I love all their albums.
But this was fun because of all the details…Namely the fringing & beads in his Indian tunic.
He has an authentic replica “Old Black” guitar.
Tom Waits…. again! I made a ‘spare’ Tom Waits as this one was a slightly unusual brief.
He was going to be animated. Something like this….
So this Tom, No 2 has some crazy hair.
It’s made curly by using pre-knitted wool which has been unraveled.
He’s waiting patiently for the bar to open!
