I've become a Bobble Head!

I got inspired by my last post about Bobble Heads. It got me to thinking, which is always dangerous, about how it would be fun to have a bobble head of myself. I wasn't about to go out and sculpt my head, make a mold, blah, blah, blah. But I could "photoshop" myself into a bobble head so I did. Gave myself a cool 1950's poodle skirt "lifted" off a Betty Boop Bobble I have. I am ready to rock 'n roll now!

I even added my little Yorkipoo, Pixel to the mix and bobbled her head. (Is "bobbled" a word?). Of course, with Pixel it's basically a real life portrait - she's a hyper threaded bundle of atomic energy. That dog was born a bobble head!

Here is "The Original Pop Art Diva BOBBLE HEAD". Can you dig it? Check out the animated version on my Artist Bio Page.


Everything Old is New Again - Bobble Head Doll Revival

Bobble head dolls are all over the place these days. Mostly sports figures, but I have seen pop culture icons. I found a site that has Betty Boop Bobble Heads and one had on a poodle skirt which was exactly what I needed to make myself into a Bobble Head Doll for my website.

I've had a set of Beatles Bobble Heads for almost 43 years. I won them on KRLA radio station when I was 13. I'd forgotten I had them until I sold the house after my father passed away. There they were along with my Howdy Doody Boy Scout Puppet, my Hop-A-Long Cassidy signed photo, and other memorabilia from childhood. I kind of thought they were cool and they now sit on top of my CRT monitor just bobbing away and keeping my past alive.

I remember when I won them I thought they were dorky even though I was a big Beatles fan, now I love them. Funny how time gives you a different perspective.
