When Coco Crisp busted out the afro back in 2011, I knew that this was an opportunity to work on this crazy project. I had hoped the A’s would have done it for a giveaway but I just felt that this opportunity was too good to pass up.
[I ended up meeting him on Sunday and link to my story at bottom of post]
I paid $25 for this 2005 Cleveland Indians Crisp bobblehead and got to working on it. This surprisingly only took me two days to complete. The painting was relatively easy. Deciding what to use for his afro was a different story. I wish I could have found a base bobblehead of him playing defense, but him running the bases works out fine too.
After the jump, I’ve included a slideshow with each slide detailing every step of this project. (To see my other bobblehead works, click here)
What do you think? I think it turned out well.
**EDIT: Met Coco on Sunday and he loved the bobblehead. He even signed it for me. His agent was there and said that he would like for me to possibly do another one for Coco’s family. Here’s my blog post on him meeting me and signing my bobblehead.
