When NC resumed executions with James Hutchinson in 1984, David posted these around town. Weaver remembers helping with Hillsborough Street, while Kurt F recalls driving David to the Governor’s Mansion, where “they got run off.”

Sasser St bookmark doodles

from Alan B: As all his friends know, David loved to doodle, on any piece of scrap card stock or paper. These are very small images he xeroxed a bunch together before sticking a few into books as markers at Cameron Village Library for a lucky person to find later.

 

Another interesting way David “published” his work was stickers, made from mostly bio portraits or Muerto Dia images and distributed to friends and on signs around town.  Click below th see a selection.

Below are 4 of the original pieces that came from Karl’s house on Cox Avenue to be shown at the original tiny location of the Paper Plant Bookstore on Salisbury Street in downtown Raleigh.

from John DJ

This lovely gal, a paper cut-out, came out of the closet in the Park Ave. apartment (by the I-Hop) during the final party before destruction of that house. Everyone graffiti=ed all the walls – David had already lettered this out in the hall “I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.”

from Mark H

He gave Mom and I this great painting for a song, after turning down a lot more for it at Easy Street one night, where it was hanging in Jim’s office. Madelyn only allowed it on the wall when I was in town. I had to wrap it in a sheet and hide it behind the sofa when I left. That went on for years.
Thanks David Larson.

After his house burned down, David became something of a self-styled Outsider Artist, and his wondrous little creations made many people very happy to get them.

Larson: Martyred Saints, Madonnas, Saints & Demons

David Larson created a long series called Martyred Saints. He also returned often to religious figures for his expressionistic subjects. If you have one and don’t see it, post it on the David Early Larons FB page or send to JDJ!
