Brattleboro Museum & Art Center’s Rubber Duck Exhibit


I thought since I was on the topic of art and ducks, it would be a perfect time to spread the word about a gallery show that includes-what else-but rubber ducks! My friend Lucy Sceery will exhibit her duck-a-licious artwork at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center. She combines her artistic talent with her rubber duck fancy to create artwork for the exhibit.

She uses her ducks as a metaphor for humanity, for each person’s individuality. For Sitting Duck, she designed and built more than 100 little Adirondack chairs, painting each to go with the duck that would occupy it. She arranges ducks and chairs to suit the architecture of each museum or gallery where they appear.

Lucy also has some pressed duck artworks in the show as seen below. Don’t worry fellow duck fans. No rubber ducks were harmed in the making of this piece. Rubber ducks have a way of “bouncing” back…as they are rubber ;)

The exhibit runs from April 9-July 3, 2011 at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in Brattleboro, Vermont. For more info on this exhibit visit http://www.brattleboromuseum.org/.

The World Museum in Liverpool has gone to the ducks!


Is that a sea of ducks I see? Why yes, it is! What’s the occasion? I’m so glad you asked!

40,000 of these little blue ducks are on display throughout the Liverpool World Museum in anticipation of the annual Claire House Children’s Hospice sponsored Duck Race in association with Radio City’s Cash for Kids.  Museum visitors are encouraged to sponsor a duck for £2. The sponsored ducks will race on 9 July 2011 in the Leeds Liverpool Canal at the Pier Head. If you are going to be in the Liverpool area and would like more info on the Claire House Duck Race click here.

Here are some ducks in the entry of the museum. What’s next? Quackson Pollock? Salvador Duckie? Leonardo Duck Vinci ? Sounds good to me…but then again…I’m biased ;)

Aflaaaaaac!


I’m not sure what anyone is saying. All I know is that there is some insurance for sale here and the couple is speaking Korean with Japanese translations. Well-whatever the case-I hope she said “yes!”

New Paparazzi Bud Ducks


Bud Product is a major player in the world of the rubber duck. They are very popular amongst duck collectors. They have put out so many creative designs that I have lost count. Here is a video of some of last year’s ducks:

This year they have really outdone themselves with a collection of ducks they have named “Paparazzi.” Here is one of my favorites:

Queen: “God save us all!”

I was ecstatic to get my hands on all of them! I immediately went to work on a photograph of these new beauties. Here is my latest creation:

The Paparazzi Ducks include the four on the red carpet, and also the Security and Press duck in the front. Bravo Bud Product! Bravo!

Pool Party


I love this O2 commercial. Those rubber ducks know how to party! Woot!

Ducks Crossing With Excitement


If I came across this sign, I’d be temped to take it.  But I wouldn’t.  Not because it’s against the law (I like to live on the edge ;) ), but because I wouldn’t want to be responsible for ducks getting hit by cars.  The third duck from the left looks so excited. It must be thinking TGIF!

It’s Raining Ducks, Hallelujah!


Clearly, I need to get myself one of those cars!

More Comical Adventures


Here are some more Duck-taskic pictures from Comic Con NYC 2010:

Myself with Superman and Wonder Woman holding matching ducks.

Abracadabra! How did she make that duck appear?

Batduck on a mission with Batman!

Storm Trooper and Darth Vader duck. You don’t know the power of the dark side!

Transformer and duck! Some costumes looked heavy. How did they do it?

Avatar!

There were so many more creative costumes at Comic Con. I couldn’t catch them all….hey-it’s hard trying to catch lightning speed super heros in high heel yellow vinyl boots! But I must say it was the best time I have had in quite a while and can’t wait until next year’s Comic Con! Now, I’m off to read my new Darkwing Duck comic books!

Like Superhero and cosplaying ducks? You can find them here at Only Ducks.

Comic Con 2010….Duck Style


What a load of fun to be had at Comic Con! Many attendees dressed up as Superheros (including myself as Super Duck..a little creation of my own) and not one of them declined a picture with one of my rubber ducks! Even James Silvani who is the illustrator for Darkwing Duck posed with one of the ducks! And now….some duck-a-licious pictures from Comic Con 2010:

Me getting struck by lightning! Bang!

James Silvani.

Wolverine and duck.

Wonder Woman and duck.
