On a Spoon!

In the mid ’90’s there was a comic book and a cartoon called “The Tick.”  It was a great spoof on all of the other action comics out there and I loved it.  We used to Tivo it and watch it every night.  My beautiful young bride watched it so often that random quotes from the show have made their way into Girl2’s vocabulary.  Phrases such as when she would fall down, we would quote, “Gravity is a harsh mistress!

“And, isn’t sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean all you get is one trick, rational thinking, but when you’re good and crazy, oooh, oooh, oooh, the sky is the limit.” – The Tickthetick

I may start throwing out quotes from The Tick as they apply to my posts here.  I can’t help myself.  For instance, when I saw last night’s EDM, draw a spoon, my first thought was his battle cry.  The Tick was eating and hold utensils in his hand and trying to come up with a battle cry that will strike terror into the hearts of villains everywhere.  “SPOON!”  Now the wife and I shout that to each other when we really don’t want to go to work but are accepting the challenge again.

Last night was also my second night of figure drawing.  OUTSTANDING!  I was rushed from racing the 67 miles from work to the art house, and it definitely showed in my work.  But the atmosphere and the things I’m learning are truly wonderful.  Pics tomorrow.
