Yep. It works.



For those of you wondering --> this 2004 Fark thread is the inspiration for this image.

Aaaand, no. I didn't actually apply any lipstick to Maisy. I cut a carrot into the shape of a cat butt-hole and used it as a stencil. Try explaining that to your kids.

Although this somewhat of a elementary school art project feel, I had a lot of fun making this one, and the next two that are like it. I used bits of beach glass that I have collected over time, and scanned with the transparency adapter.

Andy Warhol Soup Cans




The colors are from plastic report folders cut and placed on the scanner.
The striped background is from rapidly sweeping a flashlight over the scanner sensor-thing as it was moving.

Everything is black and white in the moonlight. Even a school bus.



Color image. The bus is a gift from Elsinore in regard to an old "Yellow" theme. :) The setting is my failed attempt at aluminum foil art. The 'school' is a bit more obvious in the larger popped version.

COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE
We astronomers are serious about our coffee. The specimen displayed here is my favorite-a medium roast Kona. The brush you can see there is the end of a measuring scoop that came with my grinder and is used for clearing away coffee dust. By now I've pretty much replaced my blood with this stuff. Excuse me while I go make some more. Mmmmm coffee. 2/3, Pops.
