Otto-matic polymer

Jake Johnson on PCDaily

After several days in a hotel at a great polymer event I’m GPSing my 8-hour drive home. Otto-Matic, a 12″ polymer, wood, metal and resin sculpture from Virginia’s Jake Johnson makes perfect sense.

Jake’s on Etsy and Facebook but he doesn’t explain much about his art. Jake’s other characters have names like Freakshow Freddie, Klankenstein, Ape-Bot. You get the picture.

While you may not understand this horror genre, when you’re facing a long road trip Otto’s demeanor looks right.

Who do you think sent the link? Bet you didn’t guess Ronna Weltman!

      As an avid horror movie lover, I think these busts would be right at home on the coffin bookcase in my living room. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

        Funny where polymer takes our creative impulses–Liz Hall sent me a link to some polymer freakshows that even I couldn’t bear to look at—but I have to admire the artistry and craftsmanship–as here–all the same.

          I just took a look at his etsy—Ok, the avatar with the gas mask makes PERFECT sense.

          I can see the attraction. Kinda goulash, but fascinating!
