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 Little Hole in the Wall

This doorway is built into the side of a ‘tunnel’ in/under the Eads Bridge, downtown STL. Kinda interesting. I wish I wasn’t so shaky, though (as you can see the following conversation didn’t work out very well for me).

Me: “Sooooo… do you… come here… often?!”

Tripod: *sighs & rolls eyes* “Puhleeeze.”

Taj Mahal

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.”

Ice Abstract No. 1

Leave it to me to trash the entire blogosphere with a rapidly melting post. Now where did I leave that mop again?

Harry Dunne (with his tongue stuck to a frosty chairlift pole): “Hi there! Say, kids… you wouldn’t happen to have a cup of warm water, would ya?!”

Pop Art Armor

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.”

Monumental Retaining Wall

A somewhat non-typical view of the Gateway Arch. Kinda fun. All in all.

– all in all it was…

– just a brick in the wall…

Flamingo

Flamingos make me think ‘Miami Vice’, so I decided to pump up the pink and aqua here. Then I noticed pulling the saturation back created a bit of a 60’s vibe. Hmm… Sonny Crockett meets Don Draper… that would be an interesting conversation. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Pete Campbell: “A man like you I’d follow into combat blindfolded, and I wouldn’t be the first. Am I right, buddy?”

Don Draper: “Let’s take it a little slower. I don’t want to wake up pregnant.”
