you are having fun with Mr Potato Head! my son used to build creatures like this when he was younger... I like the way you did this with B&W and the dramatic light.

Looks like the re-constructive surgery from the mugging didn't quite go as planned.

Agreed on the good strobe work; nicely done.

Thanks for the compliments. The light was really simple; I placed the freakshow on a piece of white foamcore and just blasted a snooted monolight on it about 8-10" in front of him.

There should be a Potato Head thread (like the LEGO Man one ) Very amusing and the lighting makes it.
