Easter Egg Monster. Silly egg shaped monsters sometimes like to paint themselves with pastel colors for Easter. It is the height of good taste and restraint. As a kid, my birthday parties were always celebrated with easter egg hunts. I hated the heated Darwinist competition they stoked in my try-hard cousins. Collecting the most eggs was a life or death struggle that usually ended in torn clothes, yelling and some ugly ground and pound.
Movie nerd cartoon. I miss the old days when renting videos was at the top of the list of things to do on a random weeknight. Vision Video in Athens, Georgia is the place I used to go – it had great independent and hard to find movies. You can still see its ghost on Google Maps. That place made me into an unforgivable movie nerd. Fat nerd with a big gulp and campy straw glasses wearing a vision video t-shirt. Fedoracore.
Giant Paint Tube Monument. I miss the 90s. This is a recreation of an assignment I had in an illustration class – of the Lamar Dodd buildng. I still have dreams about that place. It makes me sad that they moved visual art to East campus. This is a giant tube of red paint with a crow perched on top. Pop Art sculpture.
