Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Tuesday, November 15, 2005


This is a portrait of my neighbor. It was drawn on the pack of some packaging that came with some curtains my girlfriend recently bought. I cleaned if up a smidge and colored it in with photoshop. I was trying to be artsy-farsty. I kind of like it. I think I may add a few more images and do a large version to hang on my wall. Maybe. I drew this because this is what I think of when I think of my neighbor. My neighbor mows his lawn twice a week. He gives me dirty looks because I only mow once a season. There is a hammer and nails because he likes to work on his house every weekend. The barbecue is there because my neighbor has a barbecue on his back porch. He cooks with it three times a week year round. He is a manly man, even though he's kind of short. As I write this I can see him out the window mowing his lawn again. He keeps looking at my yard and shaking his head. The lightning is in the picture because I am afraid someday my neighbor will loose his cool and come after me waving his barbecue tongs and hammer. If he does come at me like this my plan is to hide in the long grass in my yard. Bwhahahahaha. Even if you don't love my plan, will you love me?


  • I would love to see you tonged and hammered. Love.

  • Hi everybody. I want to give a special thanks to all my lovers for being patient with me. It has been a crazy busy week and apparently will continue to be for most of the holiday season. I will post as much as possible. I will post at least three times a week. I promise.

  • Yah-well I got you beat on weird neighbors. Mine waters his driveway-yes waters it! Apparently the rain does not do the job well enough. I say keep drawing on whatever you find. I enjoy checking in! Cheers! Love

  • Have you taken a good look at those ears? Your neighbor is not from this planet.

    If he ever invites you over for barbeque, don't go.

  • Don't like your plan but love you anyway. Love

  • Move here. Some of us don't mow our lawns. Some of us (them) do but are afraid of the big dog so don't say anything. Everybody's happy. Love.

  • try goats! they're natural lawn trimmers...and there's an added bonus:

    if the alien runs out of packaged cow, you might be able to distract him with walking chevon!

  • Yard rage I can see it coming...and then fan rage if you don't post 3 times a week.

  • I like the idea of the goats.
    Or you could always Astroturf your lawn.

  • I have just now noticed my assumption that most bald men have a lawn fetish. A parallel maybe?

  • I love your plan!

  • when I first looked at the picture, I came up with my own story. The guy was mowing his lawn when lightning struck and blew his head off, then they bbq'd it and nailed it back on. hehehehehehehe

  • holly: Maybe he's hoping it will grow?

    d. maria: What?! I'm the good neighbor with the long grass for the little creatures of nature. Don't you want to roll in my grass?

    merlinprincesse: I've tried not watering the lawn but it just keeps growing?

    catnapping: Funny he gave me a cook book once but I couldn't read it?? He told me it had the most delicious recipes??

    anonymous: Do you have a better plan?

    andrea: I want to be happy too! Where do you live? Can I move in?

    catnapping: OOOO, Great idea. Keep my lawn nice and trim and distract the aliens all at the same time. I wonder if you can have goats in the city?

    detlef: COOL! I'm all about rage.

    carolyn: If only I could astroturf the goats! Now that would be cool!

    fairclavicle: If you can't trim your hair at least you can trim your lawn?

    big a: An Alley!

    burfica: Your good. Great story.

    redt0pmedusa: I love you. Are you the one with all the pets?

  • haha, I love the mental image I got of you hiding in your long luxurious unkempt grass.

    By Blogger Jaimie, at 14:51  

  • My better plan is that your neighbour will loose his cool and come after you with his lawnmover when you are hiding in the long grass };-} Love.

    By Blogger Anonymous, at 19:05  

  • Roll in your grass... Hmmm... You sure know how to tempt a gal!! ;)

  • You will have the last laugh, bar-b-qued meat causes cancer if consumed in excess.

    Next year throw some wild flower seed in your yard and tell everyone you are a Conservation Ecovolunteerist, and that you wish to do nothing more than to protect nature and its inhabitants.

    No mowing, no guilt, only love for all living, growing things! hehehe

    Love for you.

  • Oops. Hey mow your lawn you damn lazy punk.

    By Blogger Jonpaul, at 01:17  

  • jaimie: That's nothing you should see the hair on my back.

    sandbox: Great plan! When I'm chopped into meat bits he can BBQ me! (Actually after posting this picture I felt guilty and just today mowed the lawn. It took me three and a half hours. My arms are killing me.)

    d. maria: Wee Hee!!

    ldahl: Thats a good idea. We want the grass to be replaced with all kinds of crazy plants. We just haven't gotten there yet.

    jonpaul: I did.
