Ah, Gig, the master of the big-eyed puppies and kittens! How I love thee! How I long to know who you are! Indeed, Gig is one of the most elusive of the big-eyed masters, but it certainly wasn't for lack of effort! A dozen or so of Gig's huge, huge-eyed puppy and kitten designs were apparently quite successful, resulting in many different format prints and a series of Milton Bradley puzzles.
This print is quite large, a color litho mounted on thick particle board and with a textured clear top coating (visible in the scan). It's also quite yellowed, owing to the top coating, no doubt, so I've color-corrected it in Photoshop.
The name for this one, Potato Chip, is apocryphal; I got it from the illustrator Mitch O'Connell, whom I interviewed for a magazine feature on big-eyed art*. He saw it called that in a magazine ad.
I've always admired the sort-of "Ashcan school meets Salvador Dali" quality of the background in this one.
*This feature, written in 1994, features interviews about big-eyed art with O'Connell, Bill Griffith, John Waters, and "Tom Tomorrow," and will be scanned in the weeks ahead.
