This is the cutest little boy doll I've ever made. His name is Otis and his creation is a collaboration between myself and artist Gerry Simpson. I created the soft sculpture body and his red striped tee shirt and rolled up jeans and Gerry painted his adorable little face. Otis is inspired by Gerry Simpson's paintings of children at play. Otis is also the star and main character in Gerry's upcoming book for children. This little guy is Gerry's and will be on display at the GOS... Gallery Boutique on Del Paso Blvd. in Sacramento's Design District. You can also see more of Gerry's paintings, photography and art, my Tribal Energy Burlap Men and cultural jewelry by a local Sacramento artist. For more information about the gallery, Gerry's book and if you'd like your own little Otis (a smaller, kid friendly version coming soon), just message Gerry Simpson here on Facebook. Check out his what I like to call 'joyful' art on his page.
