Twain (in progress)

Friday is Mark Twain’s birthday so posting one of my author drawings seemed appropriate-ish (Poe here and Alcott here). I’ve been transferring these drawings into 3-D / Mixed Media pieces (about 95% complete) which I hope to finish in a decade or so. If I’m lucky.

Mark Twain: “Are you ever gonna finish one of these confounded ‘projects?’ I swear, son… you are slower than molasses on a winter’s morn’!”

Me: “Mole… asses?!” *giggle*

Mark Twain: *sigh* “I do declare… that boy may be a bit dull, but at least he’s plain-spoken!”

More trees. More fog. More… other things… on Thursday.

Walt Bishop: “I’ll be out back. *sigh*  I’m going to find a tree to chop down.”

I’m afraid I will fall way behind with my comments today (depending on how Thanksgiving times-out), but I hope everyone has a good one… and a wonderful weekend as well!

Schmidt: “Anyone who tells you the future of gravy is nitrogen-based is cooking with blinders on, Cece.”

Looks like the birds actually missed a spot. Now where did I leave that glass cleaner again?!

Melanie Daniels: “I keep telling you, this isn’t ‘a few birds’! These are gulls, crows, swifts…”

Mrs. Bundy: “I have never known birds of different species to flock together. The very concept is unimaginable. Why, if that happened, we wouldn’t stand a chance! How could we possibly hope to fight them?”

Slow Burn

I totally ripped off was inspired to try the above after looking at a photo on my utility bill. Full disclosure. But the check for all that gas consumption is in the mail, so I’m sure that helps. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Harry (checking who has knocked on the door): “There’s two of ’em… one of ’ems got a gun!”

Lloyd: “Did you pay the gas bill?

Harry: “shhhaaaaaahh…”

Lloyd: “Do ya realize what you’ve done?!”

Harry: “Sorry. I say we bail!”

Lloyd: “Um-kay.”

Coneys

I’m pretty sure they come with Tater-Tots. So… you know… that’s… nice.

Napoleon Dynamite: “Are you gonna eat your tots?”

Pedro Sanchez: “No.”

Napoleon Dynamite: “Can I have ’em?”

Pedro Sanchez: *nods*

Napoleon Dynamite: *grabs Tater-Tots, shoves them in his pocket and resumes eating lunch*
