Sock Puppet Portraits

Marty's Sock Puppet Portraits are photographs of sock puppets Marty creates and then frames in a faux-Victorian or Baroque style, each imbued with a curiously well-conceived personality and back-story that can then be read on the back of the piece and/or monitored on the good old internet. He's been making them in various forms since 2003. Learn more about their process and history here.

ORIGINAL VICTORIAN FRAMES

This is Plim Zambini presented in one of the ultra-rare original 'Victorian' mini-frames that I first made and sold the Sock Puppet Portraits in around 2006-2010. They are my preferred style, and after selling them for about four years, the manufacturer stopped making them. Understanding how special they were at the time, I held less than 100 back, and this year (2017-18) I'm releasing a very small number of them into the wild (originally sold as part of my special Street Sales Re-appearance on Union Square).

ABOUT PLIM ZAMBINI

Pim Zambini of the Fabulous Flying Zambinis – three circus orphans as famous and talented as they are loyal to one another. Plim, both the brains and good looks of the bunch, also carries much of the burden of keeping his family together. Thankfully he's got some amazing hair to get him through.

See The Fabulous Flying Zambinis star in the classic Uncle Monsterface video for "Go!" shot on location in Coney Island, Brooklyn.

Plim originally appeared as trio as a part of THE SERIES ONE POINT FIVE Sock Puppet Portraits, the first of the 'decimal-based' Series'.

DETAILS

The Sock Puppet Portrait comes as a 2.5"x3.5" piece, a small archival photograph framed under glass. I print, frame, sign, and date (with the year) each piece that I make.
