Drawing Life 1 Pixel at a Time
Oh I agree about Norman Rockwell. I always enjoyed seeing his artwork, as it always reflected every day life.
Good answer!Well, If I had moved to Marin County, I wouldn't have met my wife and soulmate or moved into my house and started that amazing garden that propel me into a strong love of native plants and birds, so I'm 110% okay with my choices
I posted it because I saw you once on a picture grilling "birds" , probably from the same time you mentioned.Funny story about that... I think it was around 5 years ago, our place became the staging ground for attending the Siggraph convention. We had Chris Creek, Paul Lessard, Mr & Mrs Nerd3d and Ryverthorn all staying with us for 3-5 days. At the end of the stay one of them posted in the forums, "We stayed at Ken's and all he did was feed us bird".
I do eat some chicken, turkey and occasionally duck and pheasant, but won't touch quail or squab (those are my children). The "Dude" (my "rescue" pigeon) coos in relief
There was a fad for ostrich back a decade or two ago. Someone got the bright idea of raising them as an investment scheme. I tried it once. Wasn't particularly impressed.
Otoh, one year I had a holiday dinner with a friend down at Napa Rose, in the Grand Californian Hotel, something that I ordered included bits of smoked pheasant. Now that was rather impressive, but I'm not paying that kind of prices with any frequency.
Hi Ken, I 'stumbled' across a picture today and thought to myself that this might also be an idea for a Songbird product someday in the future and completely out of the usual series: mechanical birds.
Some people will probably express negatives anyway, because that's not your style, etc. For this reason, please really consider this proposal only as a not quite serious idea. It's just something different.
