Artist Spotlight: Chris Malone

Chris Malone recently joined an online art dolls discussion group I belong to, and I LOVE his work. He was born and raised not far from where I live, altho' he currently lives in D.C. (Funny how many artists came from Ohio but don't live here any more...)

His work reminds me somewhat of Jim Henson's more complicated puppets - whimsical, stylized faces and funny, more cartoony bodies and legs. They're SO colorful and the movement of the dolls (even when stationary!) is so much fun - another source of inspiration!
