I got my light painting assignment back, and the teacher gave me 100%!

He also wrote:

As Mae West once said, "Too much of a good thing... is wonderful!" Nice job with the light painting and exploring the process!

Earlier I got my in class essay back in Ethics, something I was very worried about, I told myself I'd be happy with a C, as I overheard several others in the class complaining about getting D's, and I got an A! (This is the same teacher I wrote this paper for. I followed my advice and it paid off!)

Also, I made a new Che Morrison image I'm happier with. For those of you who saw that I posted it but then took it down, it was because it didn't look right. This isn't perfect, but it's better. Let me know what you think. It takes Che Guevara, Jim Morrison, and the Obey Giant into a unified, ripping off whole. I think I'm going to get a t-shirt of it made.

So the Che Morrison thing is sarcastic, right? Because if it is, it's harlarious. As in, so funny it makes me say "har-har-har" in a nonsarcastic way.

It actually doesn't seem like a ripoff of Andre The Giant Has A Posse to me. Maybe because the Che image is already so iconic.

Austin said...

Yes, it's meant to be sarcastic, or ironic. I saw the Jim Morrison mug shot and it reminded me of the famous Che one. It was ripping off the Andre the Giant has a Posse just because of the word at the bottom, meaning that's where I got the idea.

But glad you found it harlarious, the folks at threadless didn't. I guess one of those images is copyrighted, but whatev.

The only way this design could be more ironic would be if you put some hipster glasses on him.

Did you manage to sell any via Threadless?

Austin said...

That's pretty sweet. And no, Threadless said it contained copyrighted images, which is silly, because the Che image the photographer said it's free to use and the Morrison image is a mugshot and so it's PD. But whatever.
