One of my very favorite designers from Brooklyn, Joshua Longo, recently got a gallery show at the Shelburne Museum in Vermont. I had included his work in my coverage of BKLYN DESIGNS one year, but he's got some new pieces now that I hadn't seen before. Longo makes SCARY, SCARY MONSTERS!
There's also a really huge one at the Shelburne show that I guess is the carcass of a monster that met with an unfortunate accident:
It also appears that the Longoland website is up and running. You should definitely go look around there. His monsters are awesome. There's a bunch of pictures of some of his older work that I'd not seen before, like this monster, which totally cracks me up:
I wasn't aware that Machos came in these colors, either:
And I had seen this monster, Beau, before:
