Jim Conniff’s Whimsical “Outsider” Sculptures
I stumbled upon a 91 year old artist Jim Conniff “The Accidental Artist”
through twitter yesterday and really liked his whimsical sculptures.
His granddaughter, Clare Conniff, is working on saving his work and
making a book and a video interview. They are 65 % funded
through Kickstarter. I think it’s great she’s doing this and wanted to
share it with everyone!
Here’s one of his pieces and you can help with the project by going to
Kickstart if it’s something that inspires you!
The pickle monster, I have heard
Sometimes thinks that he’s a bird;
I find it quite a funny thing
To hear a pickle monster sing.
It’s even funnier, say I,
To see a pickle monster fly.
