Originally I airbrushed out this guy’s ‘blemishes’ (because I can relate), but it felt… too ‘perfect’. Sorry, bamboo. But hey, it’s almost Friday… if that helps. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Derek Zoolander: “If there is anything that this horrible tragedy can teach us, it’s that a male model’s life is a precious, precious commodity. Just because we have chiseled abs and stunning features, it doesn’t mean that we too can’t not die in a freak gasoline fight accident.”

Translucent Green

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

Tony Giardino: “How the h**l do you even know if you’re going in the right direction?”

Pilot: “Instruments, instruments!”

Tony Giardino *pointing at instrument*: “Oh yeah? Yeah? What’s that?”

Pilot: “That’s the artificial horizon, which is better than the actual horizon.”

Gone To Seed

I’m really going to miss all these metal plates in the attic of our store… they made killer backgrounds. This one even looks like it’s got some abstracted cloud formation stuff going on along the bottom – and that circle at the top looks almost sun or moon-like. The rest is just details. Grassy, grassy details.

Carl: I invented my own kind of grass, too. Did you know that? Look at this. This is registered – Carl Spackler’s Bent.
Ty: I’ve felt grass like this before. I’ve played on this stuff.
Carl: This is a hybrid. This is a cross bluegrass, Kentucky bluegrass, featherbed bent, and northern California sinsemilla. The amazing stuff about this is that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt at night on this stuff. I’ve got pounds of this stuff…
