The legman’s deformity was being born with legs for arms and arms for legs. The circus was going to call him “Mr. Legs for Arms” but the inside joke about
ole leggie being a legsman stuck (
ole leggie is what the carnie’s call him ) . Legman’s deformity is rumored to have been caused by the spell of a witch doctor that was cast on his mother because she had washed the feet of another man. Unfortunately for
ole leggie his mother never suffered from the spell other than giving birth to him. Soon after he was left with a traveling Gimp show and the rest is history.
I drew this in 1989. I guess it was probably inspired by Joel Peter Witkin. In order to stay within the rules I need to make him non-symmetrical and give him something to hold. I was thinking of having him balancing or operating some kind of device with his hands or feet. I might give him a loin cloth otherwise I don’t really need to worry about clothing.
