Pet Rocks Galore



So, my son is gearing up with me for my upcoming art shows. We did this a couple years ago and he really had fun with it (and made a bit 'o money too, I might add!). For the last few months, he has been painting rocks and then I glue the "googly" eyes on them to make "pet rocks". He usually paints about 6-8 at a time before it gets old, so he has been working hard on these for a while now! He also makes up names that I print on little strips of paper, so that when someone buys a rock, they can pick a name for it too. The names are seriously the best - here are some (remember, HE came up with these!):

Obi One Baloney
Storm Pooper
R2 Poo Poo
Melon Head
Captain Underpants
Chowder
Fancy Pants
Brutus
Gizmo
Puppy Face
Little Miss Sunshine (I told him to have some girl names too!!)



btw- he has a name for almost every Star Wars character like the ones above. The last shows I took these to, they sold out and my son was starting to make more money than me!

You son has the gift with rocks - another aspiring rock artist after my own heart! LOVE the names. Does he choose and place the eyes himself? Fabulous art!
