It's a fine line between Geeky and Cool...


Click image for larger view.
Some people are so Geeky, they're cool. Or visa versa. Many of the best 'cool' people have been so alternative, so outlandish and fantastical - we didn't even realise they were a nerd. Alternatively, some were just so obviously Geeky and didn't care - and that made them cool. Either way, I like people like that - Rock on Geeks!!

Wow...I like the concept and the art...wish I could express that in a torrent of fancy vocabulary and other unnecessary adornment to express that one simple statement...but what point would I be making?

Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog, I really appreciate it ^^

I like the contemplative mood.

Somehow that chair design makes your woman look like the stamen of a blue flower.

Thank you all!
This was the first thing that I thought when I think 'geeky.'

Michael - thankyou for the comliment on my charcoals - I should do some more work like that.

focus_ret, it is actually supposed to be a man, hahaha! But, my boss thought it was a girl too. I suppose he could be either.
"Got your mamma in a whirl, she's not sure if you're a boy or a girl!" Ah, we've all met someone like that.

I like this one too! Ahh is it David? :) I do have some Pantone markers from 15 years ago that amazingly still have good ink left in them. I think i have tried every brand of markers. Thus all the tackle boxes full of them.

Lauren Kate said...

Thanks, Imwithsulley.
Hehehe - is it David? Umm yea, the position he is sitting in is from a photo I found of him.
Yes - I have a tackle box ful of markers too!
I love my trias, you are always guaranteed that they will work - until they run out of ink!
