St. Louis Grunge (in red)

st_louis_grunge_red

It’s been almost a year since I posted a more neutral version of the above, so I figured I’d share this colorful edition today (and, if my computer remains unconscious, you might see a yellow version sooner than later, too). Have a great weekend, everyone!

I’d hoped to share a milk droplet photo today, but after several hours of complete failure set-backs I decided to take a break and post some vector art instead. Take that, foodstuffs. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Ron Burgundy: “It’s so damn hot… milk was a bad choice…”

Grunge Orchid

It’s been a busy weekend of getting very little accomplished. So… here’s… a… flowery thing. It might not look like much, but it does a decent Eddie Vedder impression. Should be able to do one, anyway. Grunge and all.

Chica del Sol

I’m not sure what’s up with all the color I’ve been using lately. Too much sun, maybe. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Buster Bluth (climbs out of car trunk): “Mexico.”

Narrator: “In fact, Buster was in Santa Ana, a town six minutes inland from his own, but the combination of losing his glasses and breathing carbon monoxide had impaired Buster’s judgement.”

Buster Bluth (seeking shelter under a trampoline): “Eeehhh… this shall keep me safe from the hot Mexican sun. “

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

Peter: “I love the way this country smells. I’ll never forget it. It’s kind of spicy.”

Seems like a good time for a M*A*S*H quote. Have a great weekend everyone!

B.J: “What’s Frank up to?”

Hawkeye: “I think he’s vacuuming Korea. Eisenhower’s coming; he wants everything just so.”

St. Louis Grunge

I made some wildly colorful versions of the above vector drawing, but… eh. You can scroll down a bit for color. Also, I took serious liberties here, including a fairly impressive civil engineering project – moving the Mississippi River – because that’s how I roll float.

Alright already, we’ll all float on…
No don’t you worry… We’ll all float on...
Alright, already… We’ll all float on...
Alright, don’t worry… We’ll all float on…

A First Draft

More birds today…  of the ‘hunting and pecking’ variety. If this dude looks a little familiar it’s probably because he also posed for ‘ A Spot of Tea ‘. Although this time I drew him perched on a typewriter. So… there is that.

Grady Tripp (narrating): “So there it was. Somewhere in the night, a Manhattan book editor was prowling the streets of Pittsburgh; best-selling author at his side, dead dog in his trunk.”

Dirty Harry

Mandatory Dirty Harry post (something calmer Monday). Now, go ahead… have a great day.

Harry Callahan: ” I know what you’re thinking. “Did he fire six shots or only five?” Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: do I feel lucky? Well, do ya… punk?”

- Clint Eastwood – Dirty Harry
