Humpty dumpty

One thing I never got as a kid is that if humpty  had feet, wouldn't he be a chick? In the stories he falls off and yolk oozes out. Weird huh... Haha anyways, click on it! It makes it a really cool video.

Will the cat get the odd fish? Or will the fish paly with the cats mind?



Trying to find an animal that is different than the everyday thing you see is a challenge. It's a good thing there's Google to give some great ideas! Cutting the fish out was very time consuming. At first it seemed like it would be easy, but its not, haha, it was very challenging. The clean edges were also hard to achieve. To be able to make the fish look like part of the zebra I had to change the color of the fish by painting it. For as hard as it was I think I did a decent job; these animals were very time consuming.

Butterfly + butterflyfish

Strawberry frogs, yum or yuck?

Strawberry Frogs :)
 I chose something that is a food and an animal. I tryed to stay away for the obvious, but it was sort of had to think of something bizarre or unique. The edges are clean and not jagged. In my personal opinion the cuts and paists aren't noticeable. I tried to blend the strawberries into the frogs, but it was gard to get it to look like the strawberry was part of the frog. In the end it worked out. I also tried to demonstrate Juxaposition. My contrast was the red strawberry frongs against the green leaves. Truthfully there really isn't an irony behind the strawberry frogs.
