The Amusing Creations of David Shrigley 1

Lost photograph 1996 by David Shrigley

A few days ago as I followed a series of links from one blog to another, I stumbled across the work of David Shrigley and it made me smile and laugh out loud. David Shrigley was born in 1968 in Macclesfield, United Kingdom and currently lives and works in Glasgow. He creates cartoons, animation, sculptures, photographs, and infuses them with a dark wry sense of humor. His website is chock full of areas to explore, starting with a click on the top link that takes you to his Help Desk.
