Perhaps my New Year’s resolution this year is to actually DO something productive when I get home from work.
Lofty dream, says I!
The “day job” just drains me, but I promise I will be more “updatey”, eventually. ^_^
In other news, I have a broken blood vessel in my eye. Shooting the evil eye to Husband has a whole new effectiveness. It’s…effective.
One monumental task I have assigned myself… re-photograph all my paintings in a higher res, and also re-edit all my photos so they’re not all “facebook-friendly”. Now, they’ll be Flickr-friendly! HIGH-RES AWESOMENESS!
As a little gift so you all don’t hate my lack of posting, here’s one such re-vamped painting:
Yes, it is inspired by the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. That is, before the movie came out and featured a more iRobot-esc-Marvin.
Of course, my visualization of Marvin created a seriously average-looking, old-school-sci-fi-esc robot….
(DISCLAIMER: I shall add here, that yes, I know he is an android, but look at him! That’s CLEARLY more robot than android. My bad. Fucking jump on my back, internets. I KNOW YOU WANT TO!)
So not having watched the OG TV series OR the movie before painting this, but being just in love with the “trilogy” (I can read!)… you get the robot that closer resembles something out of the Jetson’s. Sue me. I was raised on that shit.
SUPER AMAZING UPDATE 3/5/11: Prints for this piece will be available so soon (via my etsy which is so painfully empty atm) you can taste it! Check back soon, or you will be disemboweled by rabid badgers while stray cats shit in your mouth (it’s super-effective). Love, Beth
