Tile with Flowers

Starting tomorrow I will be away, attempting to photograph… a wedding. I’ve never attempted event photography… please wish me luck… I’m not the best with this many moving parts (I really, really hope I don’t screw it up)! Have a great weekend, everyone – see you in a week or so!

Pinch

Behavior this odd (more cherry shenanigans here) just might get me excused from unpacking groceries in the future. So… that’s nice. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Parking Structures

It’s grungy parking bits day (or abstracted view-o-ramp to get there day, anyway). Have a great weekend, everyone!

Nick Miller: “Why are you holding Fish Sticks?”

Jessica Day: “Because… I’m gonna go scare the feral cats away that live in my current parking spot, Nick… I’m gonna throw Fish Sticks at them… while singing memory and… don’t you dare criticize me!”

Permeable Area (and Bearman Cartoons Charity Challenge 2013)

Permeable Area © Robert Jay Matejcek

Today’s post is a vague reference to cartooning legend Bearman’s green-haired avatar… and his annual charity challenge! If you haven’t already, please click here to find out how Bearman is once again donating his very own green to some great charities including: The Cincinnati FreeStore Foodbank,  The Brandon C Gromada Head and Neck Cancer Foundation and Crayons to Computers. It’s a good deal from a good dude.

Christmas…

It’s finally time for my impression of Dana Carvey doing an impression of Jimmy Stewart! Which doesn’t really sound like either of those guys. Technically.

Guess who was too busy painting to do any photo editing again? Yup. This guy. The ‘painting’ is coming along, though (it should be posted next week). So… that’s something, right? Anyway, have a great weekend, everyone – cheers!

Playing with opacity today. Because I’m usually in a bit of a fog anyway. Have a great weekend, everyone!
