Jeremiah the Innocent Frog Vinyl Sculpture!!
Hi, How Are You Edition.
Clutter is excited to have teamed up with Daniel Johnston's estate to bring you an epic new collaboration!
Breathing new life into Jeremiah the Innocent Frog, Clutter has re-sculpted and re-imagined this popular character in vinyl, adding elements such as the Twig (or Sprout) of Hope to keep the figure as true to the art as possible.
Jeremiah was released through Art Arms LTD as a vinyl toy in 2008, and is one of the most sought-after pieces of the late Johnston's iconic mythology. Long sold-out, collectors search high and low to get this desirable collectible item.
Jeremiah the Innocent Frog is one of Daniel Johnston's most legendary characters. Most recognized on the cover of his sixth self-released cassette, "Hi, How Are You, The Unfinished Album", recorded in September of 1983. This licensed collaboration between the Daniel Johnston Group and Clutter features the quintessential album art on the back of the sculpture.
"And I saw you at the funeral,
you were standing there like a temple
I said, "Hi, how are you? hello"
And I pulled up a casket and crawled in "
- Daniel Johnston, from the song Grievances, on the cassette Song of Pain.
Destined to be a must-have for collectors of all things Daniel Johnston, this Hi, How Are You Edition stands at 9.5” tall (on the base) and 10” wide.

About Daniel Johnston:
Daniel Dale Johnston (January 22, 1961 – September 11, 2019) was an American singer-songwriter and visual artist regarded as a significant figure in outsider, lo-fi, and alternative music scenes. Most of his work consisted of cassettes recorded alone in his home, and his music was frequently cited for its "pure" and "childlike" qualities.
Johnston spent extended periods in psychiatric institutions and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He garnered a local following in the 1980s by passing out tapes of his music while working at a McDonald's in Dobie Center in Austin, Texas. His cult status was propelled when Nirvana's Kurt Cobain was seen wearing a T-shirt that featured artwork from Johnston's 1983 cassette album Hi, How Are You.
Beyond music, Johnston was accomplished as a visual artist, with his illustrations exhibited at various galleries around the world. His struggles with mental illness were the subject of the 2005 documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston. He died in 2019, of a suspected heart attack.
