Two Feet and More

I’ve been dying to show these giant drawings in public. So, when I saw the call for entry, I jumped in with… both feet!

Two Feet and More is a show at the Towson Art Collective of works 2′ and larger. It seemed doubly fitting that my work is larger than 2′, and is of 2 feet!

This is quality Dad humor, folks.

Each is approximately 3′ x 3′.

P.S. I was told this is “funny sexy.”

BO/DY

I saw a call for entry at nefarious contemporary in Baltimore on Instagram:

Our February exhibition is now open for entries! BO/DY was thought up as I and many of my beloved friends have experienced extreme body trauma and abuse in our lifetimes. The body is something we shame, we neglect, we criticize, we oh-too-closely compare to other bodies. In a time of revolution, such as the one we find ourselves in the midst of, the body is starting to receive more love than it has in a long, long time. And we want to celebrate that. This exhibition will open on St Valentine’s Day and serve as an online and zine exhibition. Which means that each applicant, regardless of their acceptance, will receive a complimentary zine once it’s published. Tag some of your favorite artists below working within themes of body to let them know they should apply! And feel free to shoot us over any q’s you may have!

This exhibition is US only due to funding restrictions.

My girlfriend and I were experimenting with cyanotypes, and I made this.

As a kid, I was always self conscious of my weird, awkward ehlers–danlos syndrome-ish body, especially my feet. Well, NO LONGER! I learned to….

Foot Prints

Probably my favorite 3D scan, I present the Sidekick! I sculpted this character, made a mold and then scanned it. I can print them in brass, silver and various plastics and in various sizes.

Three human feet with dog legs - red plastic, brass, blue plastic.
3 human feet with animal legs.

FOR SALE

I have one red prototype for sale – 2.5″ x 1″ high, with silver nails. If you’d like it, send $45 and your address (US only, please – if outside the US, please contact me jim.doran@gmail.com).

I plan to print more of these, including pairs, for the shop. If you’d like one, please email me.

Dr. Stinky

I made a 3D scan of my original Dr. Stinky figure, and can print copies. The one in black below is a print.

Insomnia Haiku #6

Dreamless Fantasy,
All women have size 12 feet,
And I steal their shoes.
