Twist Factor.

Update:  Good God, my satellite receiver is down.  I may actually be reduced to having a conversation with Cruel Wife rather than catch re-runs and scan for bad SyFy movies.  What did I do to deserve this cruel fate?  It was so healthy and working so well this morning and then… pfffft… gone.   Just… gone.

Soylent suggested a mobius bacon graphic a while back.  Or I suggested it after reading something of his.  Somehow I got it in my head to do a mobius bacon graphic.

It was not easy to do in photoshop and I got tired of trying to model it in Blender 3D and last night I got out the charcoal and pencils and went to work.  Then I digitized that and now my graphics editor (one of them) is probably going to savage it and tell me how to make it fit for consumption, which is ok.  That’s what I want, actually.

So until that savage constructive criticism comes back, I’ll putter around on another thing I’ve put pencil to paper on.  That is a “Dr. Lemur’s Pastries for Your Spleen” sketch.  I want to bring that in to photoshop and colorize it a bit or turn it into a true victorian-era Dr. Lemur graphic.  It’s based on a real barn from near where I grew up – “For Your Liver, Dr. Pierce’s Pleasant Pellets“.  The guy who bought that property knew it was a “Historial Landmark” when he bought it, but now wants to actually do something with it (read: demolish) now that it is too expensive to keep it from falling down (it makes sense in an irony-sort-of-way) – but, since it’s “historical” it’s no longer his to do with as he pleases even though he owns it.  Please see the next paragraph regarding enslavement coming your way, soon.

I’m looking this up to see if it’s true or not – NRA speaks at the UN as Democrats Continue to Seek Your Enslavement.  That’s my take on it anyway.

Here’s a real good reason why I’m distrustful of authority in the first place.  Racing to get your bleeding in-labor wife to the hospital that knows her history and what to do for her means you are a criminal with no remorse and should be treated with less respect than a pedophile or rapist, apparently.  Oh, Canada…

But this crap could happen here in the US, too.
