I am not an artist.
I just bludgeoned a fleeting thought of comparing with these talented individuals. When I look at their new art I always say something like "WHAT? Hello!!! Um!!! Excuse me!!! Why!!! How!!! Ahhhh!!!" And then people think I've read some bad news or something.
I'm going to top them.
Here is my idea of a beautiful and tasty eyeful.
And I've named him Edgar. He is mine and he is my Edgar.
(In other news, he's a little too orange and a little too perfect to have been mashed and put through the fire. Also, Florence is not a good artist. So here you have a croissant that is imperfect in his perfection. Poor guy.)
And OH OH! I only used four color pencils! Take that!


WAIT WAIT WAIT! Person of the day!
This fella.
He certainly has seen some of the oddest portions of me. He had to marry me in a skit and endure my shameless flirtation for, what's it been, several years now. He had to endure my bitter teasing of him and his holy FD status. God forgive me, a sinner.
I don't think I've ever told him how much he impresses me. Just because he doesn't say things out of line. When he opens his mouth its usually to say something worth opening your mouth to say. And that hits me...cause that's hard to do!
He's also faithful to return my jokes, even when they're not in the best taste or get to be kind of irritating or over the top.
And so far he's never indicated that he's sick of me, even though I'm sure he must be.
Much love.

Yeah yeah I know.
I could draw a stick figure and you guys would still try to persuade me that I am an inner artist.
I am content with my non-talent.

YOu're a genius.
Your mom is SO putting that in one of your school folders.
So...now that you've proved you can do photorealistic...how about giving us some juicy abstracts. You know you wanna wanna (!!)

"WHAT? Hello!!! Um!!! Excuse me!!! Why!!! How!!! Ahhhh!!!"


SO true, man.
Too bad that sentence is the closest our average blog reader will ever come to knowing the ironic wonder of F.H.M at a loss for (articulate)words. It's the coolest thing.
The "UM!!!!!?" is classic Florence.
I miss it.

Verbatim from my husband:
"Woh, thats's pretty good. What's she doing all of a sudden, man, tryna be talented?"
That's a geniune brotherly compliment right there.
And that's 3 comments in a row. Heavy.

Hey it's good! I like the napkin the best, awesome that it's done with just color pencil.

first I thought..a peice of ***t???
But only because (well you said it in the entry) how it was imperfect in it's perfection. not that peice's of ***t are perfection...anyway how's that for bringing you up to knock you down lol
We all know it's a good go at photorealism ..which I assume most artists shy away from.
