You Never Know What You'll Get
One of the things I like about making sock puppets is that no matter how much you sketch and plan in advance, you never really know what you are going to end up with until you are done. I like the whole randomness of it. This puppet reminded me of the stereotypical uncle who is a little on the strange side, and you don't know whether you really want him to show up at family parties or not. I thought he was cute in his own way, but I didn't like the way he was staring at me. It is probably appropriate that his picture is a little fuzzy.
