Over a year ago I found a painting here on CO+K of Ed Gein and I mentioned in a comment that I ought to make a doll of him. I started that night and finished sculpting his face onto a plastic ball. His hat is model magic. Problem is, I stopped there out of either boredom or I found another doll to work on. Fast forward several months and I'm sitting in my favorite tattoo shop just chatting with the guys and their new apprentice, a lovable guy we call Jesus. Jesus has a deep interest in serial killers, Edward Theodore Gein being one of his "favorites"
I STRESS THAT I NOR JESUS CONDONE MURDER
So upon meeting Jesus I felt it necessary to finish Gein. The shop owner and the other lead artist (Alan my red devil doll) bought Gein as a Christmas gift for Jesus and ive never seen a bearded man dance so happily.
