The Little People Claim It's How You Use It



Small. Illustration Friday.

Everything is relative.

That's not to say that your relatives are everything. They can be. They can want to be. Some relatives are very lonely. Some are lonely for everyone but you.

But I digress.

Speaking of relatives, to further illustrate the SMALL concept, here's a little forced perspective gag I did with my father and my son: The Amazing Grandpa Tony & Mighty Joe Young. This is a wmv file. You have to right click and "save link as" to play it!

Hhahahahaaaaa, loved your movie!!! Could hardly see Mighty Joe Young but think he would 'use it' well like his Dad! Nice sucky thing in your still image ... guess that is what transmits info to the glowing eyeballs. Are they your relatives' limbs stuck to that globey thing? Hheheheeeeeee. Great submission this week Tony!

You digress well. Love the eyeball thingys. I feel like I am looking through a microscope peering into something you have created!-with an evil laugh!

This is just so cool, Tony! Love the movie clip you created. The black and white bit gave it a very "Plan 9 from Outer Space" Feel. 100% agree with anonymous! Superb submission!

By the way, thks for vising my blog again and leaving me such encouraging comments. :)

This reminds me of those educational movies that show the stuff that lives on your countertops and in your carpet..unbelievable! I like the transparent fragile look of these...things.

I bet that alien gets lots of spam offers...

The film works brilliantly! I reckon you should have a still from posted as well, but that'd give the game away.

I dig the negative image and composition. Something about the alien: he could be tiny - no bigger than a dustmite! There's nothing to indicate otherwise, only that this alien is a small part of a much larger Cosmos...

I thought that's the world inside our vacuum cleaner.

Do I have any opnings you might fit?

Tony LaRocca said...

Jerzy- do you need a new wine steward?

OK, Jerzy, time to clue the panel and the home audience in on the secret identity. In the words of Poe, "Unmask, unmask, unmask!"

Let's try this one. Would your answer to my friend Exidor's usual question be...
