Why isn't that true of humans? Why are we so completely obsessed with mannequinizing people and then pretending that's real or normal or desirable? It's not - I think it's creepy.
Not that I don't feel at war with my freckles this time of year - I do. I wish they would just band together into a tan, but alas - as my daddy used to say - I've got a map of Ireland on me.
But I'm asking all this because I saw this horrifying airbrush site through a link somewhere I don't remember.
Don't get me wrong - this guy is a photography god. An artist - truly.
But click "Portfolio" at the top, and then click a model from the thumbnails at the bottom. When you move your mouse off the picture, you'll see the airbrushed version. If you go back and forth quickly, you'll see how much their actual shape is changed, not just their faces. Here you go. Top row, second from right is particularly dramatic. Are people disappointed when they see her in real life? That would be crazy sad, because she's very pretty.
Humans. That's all I'm sayin. I like em. "As built" if you will.
So does my little robot from the new catty. He's not all that perfect himself. But he's as cute as a bug in a rug!! And he has a pressie for a human.He's from the new Lots of Bots. EEK - I love it!
I stamped him in black on Going Grey and colored him with red white and blue pencils.
That little binary stamp that comes with the set makes a fabby border.
The greeting - Happy Birthday, Human - is stamped and punched with the new modern label punch.
Then I punched a 3/4" circle out of Real Red and fringed it with my scissors, and added a clear rhinestone brad from the pretties kit.
Not perfect, but human :)
Now speaking of imperfect animals, I was feeling terrible Tuesday. I felt so bad I didn't even finish my quad short breve latte, if that tells you the depth of my yuckiness.
However, once at home, I discovered what the cats do all day.
Marathon sleeps. Crammed onto their teeny chair. This doesn't look comfortable.But each other's belly scars, crazy fur, crooked tail - they don't seem to notice.
Me neither. I think they're perfect.
