Illustration Friday : GHOST!

Holy crap! I cannot believe this weeks topic - so appropriate for Stumpytown. 'Why?' do you ask? Well, it just so happens I had an recent 'encounter'.
Last Saturday, Dev and I watched Star Trek, The Wrath of Khan, played a couple hours of LEGO StarWars and went to bed just after 3am. It must've been close to 5am when something woke me - I had a sinking feeling that someone was breaking into our house (I've been having this anxiety for the past couple of weeks) I started to open my eyes so I could put my mind at ease that no one was there (as I had done in the past) but this time when my eyes opened I saw a figure at the foot of our bed! A very tall, slender male, with muscular arms, sleeveless shirt, short light hair slightly leaning and looking down at us. I froze.
I couldn't move I couldn't speak and a flood of tingling energy rushed through my body as if I was fallling. I closed my eyes tight and kept repeating to myself "This isn't real, this is NOT real" I opened my eyes and he was gone.

All I could see were the 3 green lights from the tv/vcr on the wall. I looked to my side and Dev was sound asleep. Ahhhhh! My sister said I must've had a flashback of Khan (muscular arms, light hair) Hahaaaa! Still, it was very...creepy.

Ed started a few of us on a 1 hour "Speed Painting" exercise a couple times a week (with a given phrase) and boy, it's tough! Here are a few of my stumpy versions:
"An exposed to atomic radiation fakir leaps on an apocalyptic warrior in the fog."

"A Supersonic Shaolin monk decapitates an amphibian on a submarine"

"An ectoplasmic fish assembles a goblin in a lane."
Check out Edward's, Paul's, Gene's and Augie's on the Atomic Lead blog!

Wowee wow wow wow

HA! Okay, I know you are thinking, Huh, tomatoes.
But, maybe you'll understand because they were fresh-picked this morning - this gardening business is new to me and Dev, so to have something grow, survive... and be edible... well, I felt it was post worthy. Thanks MOM for the starter plants this summer!

Heeeey... these tomatoes make a decent "Miles" helmet!

Illustration Friday : Quiet...

Aw geez... the cloud he's sleeping on looks more like a 'foot', doesn't it...I tried another version of a cloud shaped like an ice cream sandwhich... because I LOVE ice cream sandwhiches...but it looked like crap (not that THIS looks any better) HA. Oh well.
