Crabbydad's Art Corner...

Apparently, Mr. Z was learning about 'greater than' and 'less than' in math today, and he felt he needed some way to remember the difference between the two symbols. He told me he had a sudden inspiration and jotted it down quickly before recess on a scrap of paper:



When he got home from school, he grabbed a piece of card stock and got right to work. He only got one of them done before his three minute attention span timer expired, but I think it's pretty fucking awesome. The character for the 'greater than' symbol is named "Greetirzan," and, if you'll look at his mouth, it's a greater than symbol. He says the 'less than' character is named "Leezan," and faces the other direction. I think when I was his age, I was still writing 'L' and 'R' on my P.F. Flyers.



While he was working on that, Miss O (not to be outdone) created a stunning puppet for their upcoming puppet show:



From the looks of it, I think they might be doing a production of "Harry "Telescoping-Hydraulic-Neck" Potter and His Housecoat of Many Colors."

Ha. Excellent. I made a full rock band of pencil puppets when I was 7 or 8. I made a little stage for them, which I sat underneath and moved the puppets around to Michael Jackson's "Beat It". I took them to school for a talent show, which I lost.

I've been an atheist ever since.

I've been trying to figure out what those creatures remind me of and it finally came to me...Sharkticons from the Transformers Movie:

Mr. Z should totally be designing robots.

My lawyers are contacting the Sharkticons as we speak.

I just attended an all-day seminar on accounting and budgeting.
I kept picturing Mr. Z's drawings as credits and debits. I think he has a future in creating power point presentations.
