The "I dont need babelfish" universe

Its funny after all of these years I still use microsoft paint.  I remember screwing around with it in the 90s on Julies computer, one time we went to Sentara (how the f*ck did mom pull that off?) at Julies job and I think I was using it since when I knew her she didnt have a computer.  Anyway, today, on a train from Boston to New York City, I made the I dont need babelfish universe on paint, aka paint program.

Cardboard wings

Im very excited for the next project, it will involve making life-size bird wings out of cardboard, the fun part is that they will be functional, well... not that I will be able to fly with them but they will be able to move mechanically, to open and shut.  Stay tuned, after they are spray painted, a photoshoot will follow with likely some edited images posted here at the blog.  The photos will be used to make small figures.  The current little bird men people will be more human than bird, with the mechanical wings added onto them.  So no super elongated arms and the way the wing opens will correspond to the model wings as well as the shape (flat knives) not just as twisted tassles on the arms.
