OXO Moving Card

I was happy to make this image for OXO. They needed an image to send out as a change of address announcement. We already had several pieces of theirs in our utensil drawer, so I knew they made a quality product.

OXO isn't paying me to put this on my blog, I just thought Bent Objects visitors might want to see it. I made this out of two peelers, two pizza cutters, a set of measuring spoons, and one corn cob holder (plus annealed and galvanized wire).

edit- Here's an image where I show the what's what- Details.

Little Egg sneak peek.

Yeah, this is gonna be like one of those movie previews that you see, where the movie won't be out for over a year. Yeah, it's exactly like that really.
Some good news- Rhett and Link are coming next week to interview me. They're some funny guys who I met in New York. They have a live internet show every Thursday at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The show is family friendly, if you have kids, or are one.

Anyway, the interview will be on Youtube, and I'll post it here somehow when it's available. I'm sure I'll come off as a total nitwit, but I gotta be me, right?

First Impressions

Remember, first impressions are important.

Later in relationships...well, check out this link!

Also, a reminder- Strangely Orange Snack Appreciation Day is fast approaching, and I'm trying to keep it gaining momentum. I'll be eating only orange food that day, and thanks to the menus and ideas of this blogs' visitors, I'm not going to have any trouble at all in doing that.

In honor of this special holiday, I'm selling economy t-shirts at my cafepress store with absolutely no mark-up on my part. A mere $8.99 plus shipping to show your S.O.S.A.D. pride!

Influences for images

This first image is one from my Iron Man series from a couple of weeks ago. Turned out to be far more popular than I expected. Usually the ones that I have doubts about are the biggest hits. I didn't have any doubts about the actual photos, what I was doubtful of was the soundtrack that accompanied it! (look for it over on the sidebar. you're supposed to play it as you look at the series of images.)

Thought I'd show an old comic book cover that influenced me. I just had to search the internet for it so I could post it here, and I forgot how great it truly is! So much more action than how I remembered it! My Iron Man image isn't nearly as fantastic, but I thought I'd share where my brain was at then.

At the moment, I'm working on an image for the book that is directly influenced by an old Muhammad Ali photo. I'm really happy how it's coming along, and I think it'll be a really fun image.

S.O.S.A.D. T-Shirt

An official t-shirt! Are you kidding me? I finally have something for sale? Unbelievable.
I've even got mugs and buttons too. I'm totally selling out, people!

It took three tries, but we finally figured out what kind of image looks good on these direct print shirts. The image is supposed to last, and I couldn't see much shrinkage after washing (the shirt, that is).

For those of you who don't remember, I invented a day to celebrate weird orange snacks (Strangely Orange Snack Appreciation Day). Why? Why not? If Hallmark can invent a holiday, then the rest of us can too, darn it! Here's my Cafepress store.

On another note, I need to gather ideas of orange food and drink, because I've chosen to ONLY eat and drink that color on June 21st, 2008. That will be the first official S.O.S.A.D., and is usually also the Summer Solstice (except this year, when it inconveniently falls on the previous day). I was thinking, maybe I should ask Bent Objects visitors to help make up my menu for that day. Feel free to leave your ideas in the comment section!

Iron Man!

When I was a kid, I read my share of comic books. I'm not much into them now, but I remember them fondly, and still get excited when a movie starring one of the characters premiers. Over the weekend, I was one of the billion people who went to see Iron Man, starring Robert Downey Jr.

How would I rate the movie? I liked it a bunch. Check it out sometime.

Before you scroll down to the images, look to the sidebar and press the play button of the soundtrack. I tried to give you some audio to listen to, as you follow this incredible story of good over evil.

OK, now start the music (you'll find I have no shame these days), and scroll on down!

Look!! It's Iron Man!!!

(keep scrolling down)

An unfortunate roll of the dice...

He attempts to escape justice, pass go, and collect $200!
Iron Man sez- "Not so Fast, evil doer!"

The bad guy is no match for... Iron Man!

Another job well done!

The End.
