Focus

The illustration friday prompt is focus, something in short supply around here. Everything is just so interesting...not to mention the dream I woke from this morning in which another blogger had a helpful suggestion about another idea for a book project. One of you will be getting an email later today with thanks.

I'm thinking of posting the Hollywood version of this in an edit later today, then maybe I can give this movie obsession a rest. As for existential, do worms have butts to scratch?

The Hollywood version, except it would require more $$$$$.

If any of my talented commenters has an idea for the indie version, don't hesitate to leave it in comments - no pressure, though. Alternatively, you could check out If you don't want me to destroy you.

I don't know, but it definately looks like they enjoy a cuppa in the morning?

ArtSparker said...

Ginga - I think cuppa for the worm is different than cuppa for the bird.

femminismo said...

How cute is that worm yawn? Oh, I don't want to even think about the day ahead of him/it. Those darn early birds!@

mouse (aka kimy) said...

the earlier worm gets the coffee?

such a cute little worm and bird!

Your blog is a constant source of not just beautifully executed illustrations, photography and Artwork but also vital revelatory information.At last worms (who have always suffered at the hands of the media and even the art world)are shown here for the truly sophisticated creatures they are.Because they spend most time underground in their bungalows and offices, factories, supermarkets etc.We rarely get to see them as they really are- a highly developed species of tea drinkers.They also had wireless internet and memory foam slippers long before we did,So why are they always depicted as armless ,legless, dumb wrigglers on the end of a fishing pole?

Wonderful and so detailed!

See? Theys even's got machinio guns and bandanas.I've always thought a banana design would be good. I want a banana bandana! Come on altogether now " What do we want?" "Banana bandanas" "When do we want them?" "Now!"

I checked out the SFAnimal video and it made me wonder - if gravity holds you down so quietly, holds you back and pull you down to earth ... so is gravity a tool to keep you focused? Is it (gravity) helpful or not?

It seems to me that gravity, velocity and light are a constant in your posts. It would be so nice to see those issues reunited in a book! An incident could spark a series of events.

Constant and incident ... guess my mind is swarmed with Lost references. Four days to go know!
Cheers!

The Indie version: The protagonist "Early Bird" is your typical worm junky with an ambitious plan of “Getting off worms,” with help from his crazed girlfriend Marion and his long time friend Tyrone.

Titus said...

Oh, how I identify with the first worm. Let nothing happen before my first cup of tea.
And rather like his Rambo incarnation too.
Indie? Eraserhead please.

the walking man said...

The early bird may get the worm but he who hesitates is lost.

Jasmine said...

This is so funny. i don't usually like the hollywood ramo style but you did it so well.

No, I'm afraid the kids can't come out to play. It's past their bed time.

Dominic Rivron said...

Your question about worms scratching themselves got me looking at wikipedia. I couldn't find an answer, but I did discover they can have up to 9 hearts.

Totalfeckineejit said...

For those of you who did not understand Jose's comments, I'd like to humbly have a go at traslation.


Sad wine of the late Harry. He was a man who had a bicycle for my friend by invitation of my dear Auntie Alma who frequents your beautiful blog with a rainbow over the Earth and clever teeth.

Iam lost now without Horas' timetable and also the bus pass but that's ok thanks to your blog of moonlit greetings that shine upon the sea like poetry.I love ArtSparks Theatre!

We're having a party from now till the end of the new year 2010 and hoping to respect the poetic posts that conquer America like twilight.

ArtSparker said...

TFE-On dit en Amérique," it's all good". Conquering America like Twilight would be pretty ambitious... first I'd like to complete a modest self-publishing book project or two.

Now to get your translation translated into something else...any volunteers?

Cláudia said...

TFE - Are you familiar with the concept of transcreation? You are certainly a master in that art! Congrats! I wouldn't change a comma in that text of yours!

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

You inspire, you make us laugh and yet I have not one idea for you. I love your work! Always makes me smile.

Jessie said...

I don't focus very well, I think that's why I got my IF picture out so quickly I had no chance to think about it! I love this, it's brilliant!xx

erin said...

this is just too wonderful (can something be too wonderful?) love the masking tape!

Asja said...

oh, this is brilliant!

The Indie version - both the worm and bird are strumming guitars under a tree, singing songs debunking mindless consumerism.
