a scary looking gun comes with a built in warning that it will hurt you. this cute gun is much more deadly because it fools you into thinking it's innocuous. that has got to be the reason why no real guns look like nerf pistols or super soakers. imagine if this was able to kill someone.

CANOE is an acronym for the "big five" personality traits. conscientiousness, agreeableness, neuroticism, openness and extraversion. though i'm pretty sure this person was asking for a small narrow boat which was much easier to paint.

wikipedia says: "A jiffy is defined as the time taken for light to travel some specified distance. In astrophysics and quantum physics a jiffy is the time it takes for light to travel one fermi, which is the size of a nucleon. One fermi is 10−15 m, so a jiffy is about 3 × 10−24 seconds." i've never made any jiffy pop but i assume it's blindingly fast to do. or someone needs to write ConAgra Foods a strongly worded letter.

well this is a first. i painted a person's cat per his request. then i sent a photo of the painting to that person saying the painting was done and i would like to mail it to him for free. his response:
that's a surprise!!
i had forgotten about this
and i've since found a local artist who did Carrie's portrait.
so, i'll pass as i have only a little room to hang things...
but 1400 requests???
good for you.
keep having fun!!
maybe i should start paying people to take my art.
also, i find it interesting that he gave each sentence it's own line break. actually, one of the sentences is even split up over two lines. it's like poetry for the new millennium.

i find the concept of liquid contained by right angles humorous. it just seems really unnatural/convenient. like most things going on in the world today. yet i'm all for it. unscrew a top? please. and what about wine? how the heck am i going to stack and store all these bottles? plus they're so heavy and i can't just fold up the glass to dispose when i'm done. and when i drop one? catastrophe. pouring beverages from a bladder is genius whether or not it sounds less than appealing.

this requester wanted my interpretation of his sketch. i made it a caucasian hand tree but i'm now thinking i should have made it green because this thing should be getting energy from photosynthesis instead of melanoma from burns in the sun.

it's happened. i've had to actually paint a portmanteau. not a depiction of one. an actual written out word.
