Well one can hardly classify these as 'fine art', but because we don't actually have a forum entitled 'Ghastly Examples of Amateurish Photographic Manipulation on the Home PC', I thought I'd go ahead and post them here! Not only that, but I also thought this might be a good time to remind us collectively as a group of why we're here--to have fun!! So I shall henceforth refer to these manips as 'Fun Art', as opposed to 'fine art'... Wink

Anyway, these are photo manipulations I've done over the last year and a half--mainly Paul related--for those 'special occasions' such as birthdays, and 'squee moments' where I thought I'd die if I didn't see the concept visualized in some way, shape, or form--badly or otherwise. Neutral (<--'Mr. Neutral') Most of these were lost at the old ezboard Library, so I thought it might be fun to sashay down memory lane once again, and reminisce over how unforgiveably silly and utterly sophmoric I can get when I take an idea and run with it, by reposting them here! Very Happy

So here goes (there are more to come if you only see a few at first)...



This was for Em's birthday in '04--this was actually originally posted at Horatian's,
but I'd like to make it's final resting place here, at the Library Wink ...



This was also for Em's birthday in '04, but posted at the old Library
(we'd all been sort of 'working' between boards then)--you must understand
that Em had a very intense 'Fish' thing going on at the time, which I 'artfully' reflected here...



Em's birthday '05--as you can see my 'style' was evolving
into something far more minimalistic and sophisticated by this time...

Karin's (Lindsaygirl's) birthday '04--
OK, Karin's a teacher, Patrick Vine's a professor, yada, yada--get the idea?
In this case I feel the 'concept' was better than the actual execution there-in,
but hopefully my technique improves with time, albeit in miniscule increments. Neutral
This was also accompanied by the words to the old Sammy Cahn standard
'Teach Me Tonight', which follows in blue. Shexy... Wink

Did you say (that) i've got a lot to learn
Well don't think I'm trying not to learn
Since this is the perfect spot to learn
Teach me tonight

Starting with the abc of it
Getting right down to the xyz of it
Help me solve the mystery of it
Teach me tonight

The sky's a blackboard high above you
And if a shooting star goes by
I'll use that star to write "I love you"
A thousand times across the sky

One thing isn't very clear my love
Teachers shouldn't stand so near my love
Graduation's almost here my love
You'd better teach me tonight

I've played loves scenes in a flick or two
And I've also met a chick or two
But I still can learn a trick or two
Hey teach me tonight

I who thought I knew the score of it
Kind of think I should know much more of it
Off the wall, the bed, the floor of it
Hey teach me tonight

The midnight hours come slowly creeping
When there's no one there but you
There must be more to life than sleeping
Single in a bed for two

What I need most is post graduate
What I feel is hard to articulate
If you want me to matriculate
You'd better teach me tonight

What do you get for lessons?
Teach me - come on and teach me - teach me tonight



Karin's birthday '05--So I was pondering the age-old question,
'What would Karin possibly want for her birthday
if she could have anything in the world??'
And you know, I couldn't think of a thing,
so I figured boring old *yawn* Mr. Bush would have to do.
Do think she'll ever forgive me? Confused

Akka's birthday '04--
Whaddya give a gal who's spending her birthday in Egypt for crying out loud?? Shocked
D'oh! You give her a Pharoah, for crying in the Nile!! Very Happy
'King Paul' made reference to missing his 'Queen Akka'--off on her barge,
dallying with the slave boys on some remote tributary somewhere Twisted Evil ...



Akka's birthday '04 (posted at Horatians)--
OK here's the deal--Akka's a hairstylist--see, see? And this guy named 'Bush' having a bad hair day--
he busts into her pink faux-painted hair salon packin' heat, ya see?? And he's mad--
yeah, he's really mad--because some fly-by-night with a pair o' shears
gave him a bad shampoo and cut. So it's Akka he wants--ya see? It's Akka
and only Akka he wants to save him from a lifetime of 'bad hair days', ya see??

OK, it had nothing to do with James Cagney, but that's the general idea... Confused

Response from old Library:

Thanks guys, and glad you're enjoying them! Very Happy

I had so much fun making them, but some of them took so long, I fear my highly detailed manip days may be over. Crying or Very sad So if I ever missed anyone--it was more because of a time constraint thing after a while than anything, and I apologize!

I have much more to post, but life calls at the moment! Confused

Love the Pharoe card manip. Pretty darn cool---Queen Akka, yeah! That works really well.

And the Karin and Mr. Bush pic is a gem.

Post more when you get the time. These are lovely to see again...and might I mention, the stylistic development of the artist! Cool

Thank you Estelle and Debby, Maddy, Akka, and Sara! Smile

My response from old Library:

Gotta say, it's the 'spirit' of the Library that inspires me! Very Happy (I sometimes look back at some of these, though, and think, 'What did Paul do to deserve a fan like me? Laughing Surely he deserves something more pretentiously artsy-fartsy than all this!' Confused Hopefully he realizes the spirit of affection--both for him and my fellow Librarians--in which they were created!)

Oh Akka, you're welcome! *HUGS!* Believe me, the pleasure was all mine--I get such a giggle when I work on these, I do! Very Happy


A few more to come, soon...

Yay!! Can't wait to see more! Including DUCKS! Of course, I could go to the Old Library to see them, but... I'm enjoying the happy anticipation. Laughing

The one of Karin with her hand on Mr. Bush's chest is just priceless!! Is that really a picture of her with a horse? I think I recognize it now! Hee!! They just fit together so well. Laughing

The ducks? I'm not sure which one you mean?

*QUACK!* Shh!

I did one with ducks, hey? Shocked

*SPLASH* Stop that! You're getting soap in Paul's eyes!

Yeah, gee--I don't know, I'll have to go back and check my files...

*FLAP_FLAP_FLAP!* Look--now you got his pirate hat all wet...

Heee! Duckiesduckiesduckies! Yayyy!

Hee, and I also just love the minimalist and sophisticated "ssssup?" Cool

Teri, speaking of amateurish photo manips, have you seen what Indy and I have done at my LJ, involving McGanns and some baked goods...?

OK, here are the new and improved versions of the three manips that were in this space before! Very Happy

I took the opportunity to dedicate them to three people for whom I've never gotten to do one for before, for one reason or another (like not realizing it was their birthday Sad ), so hope that's OK with everyone.

Debby, you got the last one, because you sounded like you really, really wanted it! Laughing Wink

Alright, a few more that were done just for fun, or which illustrated (what I'm sure) were vitally relevant, deeply intellectual discussions at the time, like...

...what would be the most fetching thing for us all to wear
in the autograph lines at ChicagoTARDIS in '04? Shocked I think
we were right on the mark with this ensemble--don't you think? Wink
(This is the 'flapper' pic that Rollande referred to, btw...)



And (what appears to be, anyway) the ever-popular 'Duckie Pic'
(alternately titled 'How Lieutenant Bush Spends His Saturday Nights"...)
This is one I can't quite remember the reason I made it---aside from the fact that
we're pretty sure from a number of very reliable sources that
Paul used to don his son's pirate hat and practice his 'Mister Bush'
in front of the medicine chest mirror Wink ...

DUCKIES! Yay!! When I finally saw Dealers for the first time, that scene came up and I realized, "Hey! That's where the ducks picture comes from!"


You know, I really think you should print that picture out and include it in the Valentine for Paul.
