Evidently I make thumbnail sketches of things and then forget what they are.

I think it might not be so bad except I let my visual art languish in favor of writing (because it's easier to do the things we get praise for, don'tcha know, and other than a few group shows I haven't had much luck in the art field.) In my mind, though, I was thinking fondly of these clever ideas I had, and how I should really develop them, and maybe do some interesting illustrations. All I needed to do was get my act together and set aside maybe half an hour a day to work on them....

So I scanned them in. Huh? I don't even know what the thing in the upper left is supposed to BE. I have "testing on bunnies" scrawled above it, but I don't THINK that's what it is. I must have been in a really morbid mood at the time, though.



I can identify the other things. That's booze pouring into a glass (lower left) a stack of identical canned goods (upper right) and a steak under plastic wrap on a styrofoam tray (lower right.)

I'm not discouraged, exactly...but I'm seeing the value of momentum. If I wanted to do this illustration project, whatever the hell I thought it was going to be, the time was when I was fired up about the thumbnails. Not now, months later, when I don't even know what they are.

Believe you me, there've been writing ideas I've let die, too. I have ideas all day long. I'm full of 'em.

Well, I'm guessing it's consumable or food related given the other items in the drawing, however the testing on rabbits indicates it may have been make-up. Was this a grocery list? Soup, wine, steak and make-up?

I believe it was a comment on our consumerist society. Maybe it was a value meal.

Hmm a Styrofoam cup is all I can make out at the moment.

I see that...until I saw angelwolf's interpretation.

And he's eating a slice of pizza...

You're right! He is!

And he's eating it crust first - an interesting characteristic.

It's because he really doesn't like cheese... but that was the only thing to eat at the party so he figures at least he can eat the crust without dealing with the cheese. In the picture, he just found out that the pizza is actually stuffed crust pizza.

And HE summoned the evil tornado monster, harbinger of doom!

Oh my gosh, that explains why there's no bruising! His friends are not going to like having to clean up after that. He's never going to get invited to any more parties.

He feels justified since they only had stuffed crust pizza and they know he's lactose intolerant

I would take that stuffed crust pizza from him. Right now.

It's like looking at inkblots! I see a man getting hit in the face by an evil tornado:



You can tell it's evil 'cause of the red eyes :-P

Now THAT'S what I see!

Poor guy... you gotta wonder what he did to get picked on by that!

I am glad you told me what they were - my vision plays tricks on me with a lot of things. I saw the first one as another can or a packet of some sort of snacks. Now you have all pointed out the boy in the coolie hat it must be a packet of noodles - maybe pizza flavoured? - that's not a tornado it is the aromatic steam rising from the noodles!

I thought the third one was a flowering plant in a pot.

Please don't take my vision personally as I have mistaken a photo of a German Shepherd for Santa Claus in poor light...
