Maybe I'll be a sandwich artist.


The lucky part was finding the "Fresh Bread" swatches (or chips, or samples).

sCarrie Meatball

       My daughter tells me the remake of this is pretty awful.  The above image is from my first book- Bent Objects; The Secret Life of Everyday Things (why not buy it? people tell me they really like it).

Halloween Collection

I've been busy on the children's book I'm finishing up, but here's a group to scare you for Halloween.

 And guess what! The peanut zombies are starring in the Bent Objects 2014 calendar!

A Themed Collection- The World of Art

My wife and I are both art lovers, and it's never far from my mind, 
so it's only natural that I include it in what I do.  

People are always posting collections of my work, so I figured why not do one myself? 

Some Bent Objects Art themed images- 

A Sunflower Painting

Frida (a cheap shot by me, but oh well).

Perspective Drawing

Dream Job ( photo by the great Man Ray)

Produce Loves the Work of Edward Weston

The Cerealist (self portrait, after Dali)

Day of the UnDead Bread

       (or The Walking Bread )

Big enough file for at least a laptop desktop.

Several years ago, Mark Hurst brought me to NYC to speak at his Gel Conference. Then a few weeks ago he asked if I would be interested in making an illustration for his new book. The only limitations were that it had to include two AA batteries and had to do with customers being included in the minds of businesses ( not Mark's exact words, but the jist of it).

I read a lot of the  manuscript to get more of an idea what to do, and if you live in the business world, I'd highly recommend it.

Weiwei Bird

Had the privilege of seeing many works of Ai Weiwei recently, and this is my tribute to him.

Weiwei chimed in on the current U.S. NSA scandal here.

Edit- Shortly after I published this post, I tweeted it to Ai Weiwei,
and he retweeted it to his Twitter followers. :)

Cleaning up after S.O.S.A.D. and naming a winner.

I hope everyone who took part in Strangely Orange Snack Appreciation Day enjoyed themselves.
Below are a few of the standout celebrants. Luckily for me, my wife and daughter volunteered to pick the winner of the 2013 SOSAD contest. Thanks to everyone who took part!

In the "So cute it hurts" category, there's Dorota 
       (she happens to be quite clever, btw).                                

 David made this homemade peach rum ice cream as one
of his SOSAD dishes.  His meatball dish was scary though.

Like David, Marsha made a whole day of it. This was lunch.
Dinner looked even better, but I'm a fan of grilled cheese.

Morten, in Norway, stayed very true to the "snack"part of the acronym (and artificial color additives)
all day long. Luckily he's still alive to tell the tale.

Alyssa ran away with the evening attire portion of the program. 
She is a big believer in the holiday, and has co-workers with
a good sense of humor, as well as the absurd.

For the winner though, we had to go with Dr. J Mark Thompson. He plays in the orchestra of the 
Des Moines Metro Opera, and the opening performance of Romeo and Juliet coincided with SOSAD.
He and his co-conspirator Tim provided orange food and drinks for the other players during the two intermissions and after the final curtain. 

He introduced the joy and strangeness of orange food to many that day.
Congratulations Dr. Mark! 

Mark and Tim
