Sock Puppets

I will occasionally make and sell actual puppets for sale, though the bulk of my work as an artist is dedicated to The Sock Puppet Portraits. Very occasionally I will offer one-of-a-kind puppets, and I also sometimes repeat designs. I am also available for custom puppets.

Coolzton McChillbear

Coolzton McChillbear is Sock Puppet City's Official Ambassador of Chill. He'd prefer anything iced, and nothing spicy, as is evidenced by his catchphrase, "Say no to spice, stay iced: cool!" The only exception being the many noteworthy incidents of him flying off the handle with any misstep of any wait-person ever.

Coolzton sells as is, along with his signed hand-written description card.

Every day starting October 1, I’ll be making and posting an original, one-of-a-kind sock puppet, this is one of them, and you can buy it if you want. And why wouldn't you want that?

Each puppet will premiere on my Instagram, so start there:

I'm writing about the process as I go on my blog:

So what’s Socktober?
It’s a month dedicated to helping the homeless by getting as many pairs of socks to shelters as possible. It was started by the cool people from Soul Pancake (Kid President). So: for each sock puppet I sell, I’ll also donate a pair of socks.

This puppet was made from a fuzzy sock, some stuffing, cardboard, craft foam, and hot glue. There is a hard mouth on the inside and some fluff in the head, this ain't just a floppy old sock.

While my sock puppets are made with great care, they are not certified by any governing standard of toy safety, and should be considered playful art objects.

All puppets sold are Copyright of Marty Allen, both their image and associated story. You will, however, be the sole owner of the original version of said image, and retain any accrued value therein. Any use outside of the realm of personal (and here personal does allow for their use in social media for non-monetary gain) is expressly forbidden without my permission. But have fun, though!
