Sources of Inspiration: Part Two

As I was saying, Redondo Beach's arcade is one of the more important galleries in Southern California. Or was I? I was dumbfounded at the entry by being greeted my this heap of blow up character dolls, Dora the Explorer, The Hulk, Spiderman etc. A mad collection of colors, images and shapes. Who buys these things? I know they sell them at the Circus and sometimes at fairs around here...but who buys them? and why? Can you really play with them? Who wants to hug a slick vinyl character that smells like an inner tube? I don't get it...but in not understanding gets very exciting. Plus, look at this homemade point of purchase display. Get a load of that illustration. Where the hell did that come from? Maybe here>>
