Sock Puppet Stuff for you:
READ MY NOVEL?!?
Welcome to Theodore Thursdays! Are you ready to get awesome?
Beginning September 7, 2023, I’m releasing one new chapter of the first novel in my book series Theodore & the 7 Layers of Space. Book 1 is called Brick & Bird. Check out the cover! YES THE SOCK PUPPET PORTRAITS ARE IN IT! ALONG WITH ALL OF MY ART!?!
There are two ways you can access my book. The first is via a free app for phones or desktop called Wattpad where the community is awesome, my illustrations are supported and it’s free for you to access and enjoy!
The second is via my new Patreon, where you can directly support me as an artist and storyteller while getting yourself access to an ad free copy of the book, and get exclusive behind the scenes videos, songs, discounted merch and more awesomeness!
New Sock Puppet Portrait, Matt Casserole!
Summer of Sock jogs forward in a sweaty haze to present the release of A BRAND NEW SOCK PUPPET PORTRAIT!
Meet Matt Casserole! An ode to tourists throughout the world, but in particular to those found merrily clogging up the sidewalks of my own New York, Matt's enthusiasm for hidden gems and local monuments is rivaled only by his almost supernatural ability to look upward while walking slowly. We love yuh, Matt.
This first edition was made exclusively for my ‘Summer of Sock’ in a VERY LIMITED series of 20. Each portrait is signed and numbered.
More new stuff next week!
Other Fun Merch Is Here!
Hello and as promised, it’s Summer of Sock Week 1, and here is some real fun… We’ve got SOCK PUPPET CITY MUGS AND SHIRTS! It’s practical items with my logo and stuff on them!!
PSA! In the interest of offering some fun and different designs and products that I can't readily make myself, Martystuff and Sock Puppet City present select merchandise through high quality third party, print-on-demand (POD) vendors!
Nine Time Is Up!!! Series 2 is here!
The final Nine-time is here: Sunday the Sparklecorn! We enter 2023 triumphantly by offering another brand new Sock Puppet Portrait character - a salute to my most successful style of sock puppets that I offer for sale. She loves to eat glitter and smells like cupcakes and is very good at D&D.
Nine-time was a self-imposed structure I created in order to build a Seres of nine new sock puppet portrait characters. On the ninth of every month from May 9, 2022 - January 9, 2023 , I released a new Sock Puppet Portrait character. Three brand new and six old school re-releases, but all in new styles with new packaging, frames, and dated and edition-ed tags. For NINE Months! Like a baby, but pictures of socks to build an all new Series of nine characters!
I’m thrilled now to present the SERIES 2, VERSION 2 Sock Puppet Portraits! TAH DAHHH!
Limited Edition Knot-tasha Woggle-Bight, Exclusively packaged with my new book!
I’m so excited to finally share that my sixth book of non-fiction “50 Knots for Every Adventure,” will officially release this month, on Tuesday, March 14!
The book is available for pre-order through all the major places, but in a fun and strange effort to weirdly TIE TOGETHER the stuff I do, I’m offering a very limited special edition SOCK PUPPET PORTRAIT in honor of the new book, made from my favorite knot! And this first edition is only available with a signed copy of the book as a package through martystuff.com and Sock Puppet City! ONLY 25 AVAILABLE!
Meet KNOT-TASHA WOGGLE BIGHT, a sock puppet inspired directly by the awesome process of learning so many knots, she’s made out of the scout’s “woggle”. She’s an avid climber, sailor, and fortune teller. And she loves pie.

Return of the sock puppet portraits kickstarter!
I’m thrilled to report that my Kickstarter, RETURN of the SOCK PUPPET PORTRAITS was a huge success, coming in at 110% funded on August 18, 2021. Thank you everyone who supported and shared!
Truly, I just wanted to drop a Big Public Note of gentle reminder to any anyone who was kind enough to support my Kickstarter but hasn't yet seen their rewards. Because most of you should have gotten your stuffs! I sent a big message out in early November via Kickstarter and roped in around 10 of you glorious stragglers, and if you’re in that crew, your stuff is coming mid-November, but I always worry about the power of the combination of Spam filters and the sheer volume of information we are all subjected to.
Anyhow, there are a few exceptions who should have heard from me personally. Otherwise, there’s a last pile of 30 or so dear souls who asked for rewards, and if you didn’t receive your stuff yet, I for some reason didn’t receive your survey (or something went wrong in the mail). No worries and please just reach out.
As has been stated, no further worries at all if you simply haven’t gotten to it, I’m happy to get you your work whenever you’d like it. And if you have no idea where this mythic survey is, please just let me know, and I can send you your link again.
I first have to fulfill the needs of all of my lovely Kickstarter backers, but I'll also be working toward listing the new characters here. And if you are from a small business that would like to carry them, please reach out immediately for wholesale pricing!
Above you can see the NINE characters I'm offering as small framed Sock Puppet Portraits in the year to come!
I can’t say enough how excited I am to be re-launching and re-branding my Sock Puppet Portraits alongside my entire brand/world, Sock Puppet City.
