You have to keep your eyes peeled and you will be amazed and amused. Some will say it’s graffiti and the artist should be punished. I say they are public art and a delightful surprise to all who encounter them. They have caught the eye of the grade school kids and become somewhat of a sensation. One local gallery managed to have a showing of the Mystery Blobs.
Many of the kids that caught wind of this happening arrived wearing homemade blob t-shirts. The artist created stuffed blobs, three-dimensional wood wall hangings, stickers and paintings. They went like hotcakes. The kids acted like it was Christmas morning. Of course the artist remains anonymous. They come in all manner of characters, Santa, cowboy, stripper, cop.
I got a stuffed country girl blob that I love. I place it around the house to add a touch of whimsy. Only in Key West. Dazzlin'.
