Propaganda Poster by Karl Habegger. They ended up going with my second design instead. This one was modeled after a People’s Republic of China poster.
Get it? Robot — Row Bot? Great pun, right? I hate it when my jokes fall flat.
Ve’re goingk on a treep in our faworite rocket sheep!
Private Wendy is ready for the trenches. Ronald McDonald doesn’t stand a chance, although he does have the largest Fast Food Posse. Only Jack in the Box may stand in the way of Wendy as most of her weapons involve blunt force trauma to the head.
Nothing bothers me so much as when I believe I have been incredibly clever and no one else notices. In that theme, please enjoy my joke with me: [more...]
Tonight I ate the home-cured gravlax that I made following the recipe I found at I Eat You. It was delicious. Unbelievably good. If I don’t die of food poisoning, I will call it a success.
This being my first foray into the world of self-prepared-uncooked fish, (…okay, that isn’t quite true – I once dried some catfish in our food dehydrator, effectively ruining it, but I didn’t eat that…) I went ahead and photographed it for your viewing pleasure. Please note that my photography is almost as amateurish as my cheffery. And wordsmithery.
Now that you have a picture, if it kills me, you know what to go after. Avenge my death!
Okay. So cleaning up vomit isn’t very exciting, but if you shout “THIS LOOKS LIKE A JOB FOR… DAD!” right before you do it, then it adds a little luster.
This is my Antithesis Art entry for “Redesign a Peanuts Character”.
Anthropomorphic Kitchen Appliances… I wish I could claim that mouthful, but it was Richard’s idea. This is my completed version of my earlier sketch post.
I believe the best prose, poetry, and art all accomplish the same thing: They create a sense of yearning. It may be yearning for a particular feeling or time or place, or it may be that the work makes you wish you were a better person in some way. I feel that way when I read Charles de Lint. Charles de Lint is an author who specializes in works that blur the realm of fairy tales and reality. I’ve only read a few of his short stories, but I’m enamored with his abilities.
This artwork doesn’t exactly illustrate Charles’ short story “The Moon is Drowning While I Sleep”, but it echoes the feeling I got while reading it some years ago. This painting was done for Country Bible Church’s remodel of an existing room. They are going for a coffee house feel and asked a few of the artist members of the church to create paintings for the room.
Good ol’ Santa is a good ol’ boy.
