SLIDE GUY!!!

Visual Assignment Count: 7
This one took some thinking. What in the hell could I super impose this jolly man on top of? Go meta and put him an a slide of himself? A building? Then I remembered a popular children’s show and the old adage: Less is more. Observer:…

Surreal Moments

So I’m sitting here at Toronto International Pearson Airport en route to Vancouver for Northern Voice, grabbing a bite to eat. On the television, Germany beats the Netherlands in football. Passersby stop to watch momentarily.
I’m not watching the soccer game, however, I am tuned into http://nmc12.umwblogs.org/ and the surreal…

Slide Guy’s New and Improved Mean Machine

Tweet
I get by with a little help from my friends.
Thanks to encouragement and suggestions from Melanie and Cogdog, I was able to rescale Slide Guy to precisely the size that seemed right for the Mean Machine.

Slide Guy’s Mean Machine

Tweet
So I was on campus today and spotted what at a distance looked like a cool, big sculpture in happy colors. So I spun around the traffic circle again and headed that way.

Slide Guy in the Sunshine State
