Coke Bottle with Flowers

coke_bottle_with_flowers

I intended to paint the Coke. But then I drank it all. It’s kinda my thing.

(Also…tomorrow Annabelle and I kick off our Big MFA Program World Tour. 2013. Hopefully I won’t say anything too ridiculous. See you in a bit!)

Stumped

It’s a Two-for-Thursday! Because… you know… I couldn’t make up my mind. I just hope you weren’t expecting pens.

James Bond: “… not exactly Christmas, is it?”

Q: “Were you expecting an exploding pen? We don’t really go in for that anymore.”

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!

Orange Crush

This was a very delicate operation. Or… something like that.

‘ Follow me, don’t follow me…

 I’ve got my spine, I’ve got my orange crush

Collar me, don’t collar me…

I’ve got my spine, I’ve got my orange crush’

Tin Snips

Apparently I can remember a Sesame Street skit from 25 years ago, yet I have difficulty remembering what happened yesterday. *sigh* Have a great weekend, everyone!

Mr. Barber Man: “Snippity snip…”

Throwing Smoke

It might have been easier to photograph the baseball and smoke separately and then merge them in Photoshop, but… eh. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Crash Davis: “Relax, all right? Don’t try to strike everybody out. Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they’re fascist. Throw some ground balls… it’s more democratic.”

Broccoli in Pink Gloss

A highly questionable source of vitamin… anything (something tells me the FDA would not approve). From the, “Honey… you’ll never guess what the neighbor is spray-painting now!” series of randomness.

Jason: “Well, I’m gonna go make a protein shake.”
