It’s time to check back in with LoopyBoopy, the Louisiana artist who sculpts wonderfully creepy polymer clay kids with marbles for eyes. Each is accompanied by a poignant story.
Colleen (no last name) says of her eerie sculptures, "I think people connect to their little tragedies personally and are perhaps drawn to them for this reason."
There’s a great interview with her on Win Crafty. "Most of my kids and their little stories come directly to me from my daughter’s daily wonderment, fears, nightmares and dreams." she says.
You can see more of Colleen’s work on Etsy, Trunkt and Flickr.

Fascinating… in a creepy kind of way. I like ’em.

I love Loopy Booby’s sculptures. She’s great at combining edgy humor with twisted and creepy.
I adore these oddly creepy characters. I’d love to see more!

Strange little creatures, but they draw attention thats for sure. They look sad and abandoned and like they need a big hug. Nice work, very intriging.
