About This Artwork: This is a doll of my father, whose name was Calvin. It is made with the material from his shirt and I used his actual trifocals. My dad was a neat and tidy person. Very organized. He was a WWII vet. He carried a gun around with him all the time when he walked his little white dog in case he got mugged, which happened once, but he gutted the guy with his own screwdriver.
