This all started from looking at everyone sitting glum on their way to work on the subway in NYC. I wanted to get a few smirks from people and the pole in the train gave me the idea of putting a stripper on it. So I made a small 6-inch paper stripper and popped her on the pole. From there it has grown to a collection of characters and I have put them up all over the world. It’s cool to see peoples’ reactions.
