The Great Louie Travis

Louie Travis is one my preferred artist. He paints with an absolutely astounding technique and has an irresistible sense of humor. Here you can see two recent examples of his acrylic masterpieces and read one of the funny comments that he often adds to his paintings...Please visit his site here and don't miss his fantastic blog too...

The Great Gugga Mugga

Discovered in South America at the turn of the last century, this rare Krampus had been in hiding since the great nostril incident at Stockholm in 1895.
During the holiday season, he would punish the wicked by inserting his thumb and index finger into the nostrils and lifting his victims off the ground several times.
The after effects are a harsh facial disfigurement with super-sized nostrils.
