Stockard the Doodlebug
This one-of-a-kind sculpture measures 14” x 12” x 2,” and is designed to hang on the wall or stand on a horizontal surface. It's constructed entirely from recycled aluminum signage, making it equally at home outdoors or indoors. Its wings & legs are pose-able, and the graphics and colors are exactly as pictured in the photo. Signed by Tripp, Stockard is sold as wall art, not a toy. Price includes shipping to Continental US addresses.
Each is made from recycled aluminum traffic and/or interstate exit advertising signs - stop signs, yield signs, and/or signs indicating which motel, restaurant, or gas station found at a particular exit are common examples. All of these signs are rugged tenth-inch aluminum-backed 3M Scotchlite films or commercial reflective paint on aluminum. When viewing a sculpture, the colorful parts are made with the reflective part of the signage facing outward, and its silver-colored parts are made with the aluminum backside of the sign facing outward. The silver-colored parts are hand ground and clear coated with lacquer to add texture & depth, then all parts are riveted together and given another clear coat of lacquer making the sculpture suitable for outdoor or indoor mounting. Each is a one-of-a-kind, the artist combining infinite sign-patterned graphics and colors.
