It's Better Than Bad, It's Good

Log, that is, but this one is just a slice. I thought it would be neat to paint on a log, and you know was all sorts of fun! I had a hootenanny (by myself). Very soft to the touch. The cel paint I used dried instantly with every brush stroke, so it was a race to the finish!


I'm definitely going to do some further explorations of log. Painting is so fun, I need to do it more often. A good motivation is that my cel paints are starting to harden (nooooo)!

Here's a misfit drawing that I'm thinking of disowning.

Hey! I'm selling my white PS2 on eBay! If one of you guys who knows me bids on it and wins I'll throw in some art with it! It has mics that come with the console, and it's white. Very sterile and clean looking. A worthwhile console if you don't already have one!
Click here to goto eBay and buy this puppy. By puppy I mean PS2.

Log and the PS2. Two things that got together so well.

Thanks Tara!

I was actually walkin' around Michael's when I spotted the wood section. I didn't you could buy sheets of log. o it was accidental, then on a whim I decidded to buy it and paint on it. I'm totally going to go back for more. :p

Rooniman: Perch the ps2 next to the log!

Awesome. I bought it :) I got the Rodeo Ruth in the mail the other day and was gonna get it framed tomorrow. Better to put that money towards this beautiful log. The ruth image is awesome though, will definately get framed in the future.

Thanks so much!!! :D :D :D

To save money on frames, I sometimes check out Goodwills and places like that, they sell really nice frames sometimes for only a buck or so! It's hit or miss though.

The wood is ready to be hung!

The log painting would look great on a childs bedroom wall.

My Log arrived today. I love it. And the thank you sketch has 'Can You Take It?' written on it. I gotta assume that's a DEVO reference. A hardcore DEVO reference:)

It's a double reference of Devo and Popeye!
