Carny painter, cartoonist, Larry Todd

Artist Larry Todd belongs to the society of carny’s. He paints fun houses, dark rides, mirror mazes, glass houses — you’ve probably seen them at carnivals and county fairs. He didn’t pick carny painting as a career path, it just worked out that way. He started off as a comic book artist and morphed into a surf shack painter. “What this did,” says Larry, “is turn me into a real American artist.” He likes working in the industry because he can do it without feeling like he’s exploiting anybody or that his art is being used for some ulterior motive.
