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 Spot The Dinosaur 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) 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 SPOT THE ELUSIVE DINOSAUR

Born just shy of 65 million years ago, Spot is an expert at hiding. And he’s mildly narcoleptic. He fell asleep while he was hiding behind a rock and woke up last Tuesday. Sad about his extinct friends, he bought a ukulele and named it “Fossil” Writing songs helps. An avid bird-watcher and vegetarian, he’s adjusting. 

Spot originally premiered as a member of the SERIES 2 Sock Puppet Portraits.

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.
