What attracted me most to study the kind of work I get to do is the ability to make ideas happen. It sounds pretty trite when said that way but it’s true. You can be walking down the street or looking at some picture and start going down the path of, “I wonder what it would look like if…”

      So, trying to keep that hope alive, I spent an evening putting the below together.

      While making the above, I actually saw some details that I hadn’t noticed but picked up while try to recreate it. The most glaring detail (don’t know how I didn’t notice it before) is that the men in the painting are arranged in a grid pattern. When I translated it over to an animated version, I felt a random pattern looked better to me. So that’s what I did. Hey, it’s my bastardization of a classic. Also in the original artist’s spirit of irreverence and incongruity, I paired it with the only piece of music that makes sense (Canada’s gift to great novelty songs).

Reddish orange hand, no go.

      As someone I know (can I call him a friend? street acquaintance?) said, “White man says it’s all good.”

      I’m sure the colours just worked out that way (white can be a symbol for “go” and you can’t use green as not to confuse the drivers). But nice observation.
