Well, I'm still painting rooms in my house, so nothing current to post. So I thought I'd reach back into the archives and show you this little oddity from February, 2010. It's one of my entries into a goofy photo contest from CREATUREBOX, a fun website by two incredibly talented artists, Dave Guertin and Greg Baldwin. The idea was to assemble a little cardboard monster "paper toy" they designed, called "Thorndyke", then put him into crazy locations. I didn't win any of the prizes, but I had fun anyway.
Here are the monster parts...took about two hours to build...way longer than I expected.
And here's the little guy all put together. The wire was to help me get the "one-footed-tip-toe" pose I needed. With a little Photoshop magic...voila! A new fountain for Kansas City!
UPDATE! Thanks to my nephew's eagle eye, I was made aware that I had forgotten to add one other source photo for this image. I borrowed the water spray that comes out of Thorndyke's mouth from a photo of another famous KC fountain. I can't detect exactly what bits I used...I'm sure I "cloned" parts that I liked and moved things around to make it work. Thanks, Christopher!
