Taj Mahal

A bit more vector art today… and I’ve taken the usual liberties, of course. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Mr. Smiley

Today, a former Grand Forks North Dakota legend of sorts: that’s right… a winking water tower. I’m not sure when this beast was originally constructed (before my time, I believe). Anyway, due to escalating maintenance costs ‘Mr. Smiley’ was recently torn down and replaced with a newer, less winky tank-o-H2O.

Silly as it seems I kinda’ miss this  ridiculous thing; (which is part of the reason I made this image so contrasty) I’m a little bitter. I’m sure Mr. Smiley would not have wanted that… he was as optimistic as any inanimate object could be. So long, you oxidized old fellow (I’m off to get a tetanus shot).
