A vaguely queer and amazing image to illustrate an ahrd tongue twister challege ... You're in a most brilliantly imaginative mode here! :eek::cool::p

Hi Steve, Thank you! The border is made with the houses stamp duplicated and using differential effect flipped horizontally.:)

Thanks so much Juz, so happy you liked it!:)

Cesare, Thank you very much kind friend, I am going to re-edit this painting though. I just had an idea...a little gruesome perhaps, but I think it will be more entertaining as sick as this sounds, but I must try it....stay tuned to ArtRage channel WEB for the continuation of The Twisted Dr S and unhealthy foods to live by.:rolleyes::p:p:p:D

That would have been better Cesare, but I had already started working on the ham.:D

Thanks so much Gary, it is wonderful to have the masking tools to make these borders and invert-add and then even change effects in specific areas, isn't it? I still haven't learned how to make stamps and stickers. I printed off SOS's instructions. I need to take the time to do this, I would really love to take advantage of the possibilities of this great program.

Thanks so much Byron. Once during the holidays years ago the kids and I were grocery shopping. We were strolling along looking at the meat and there it was-a beautifully prepared pigs head with the works. If you can imagine, the kids were mortified, and I must have looked the same way, because the butchers were laughing when I looked up. A special order no doubt, from whom, I didn't want to know.:D

Hi Mike, thanks, I do too. My son on the other hand said: "No, I do not like it Mom I am, I do not like your green eggs and ham.":p:)

Jean, I agree, a wonderful story indeed enjoyed by several generations already and more to come. Thanks so much for checking it out and your kind words.:)

Yes, a good LOL. And interesting too. In many parts of the world a dressed pigs head in the meat counter is common fare. What is really fun is to be sitting down for dinner and have one sitting on a platter in the center of the table, cooked and staring out at you it all its succulent glory. Truthfully, it's really yummy. :)

Oh my gosh Byron, I knew as soon as I typed this how demure and uncultured that I must have sounded.:eek: I will elaborate in PM.:o

Demented, Alexandra :eek:, and so well done, in an overtly easy sort of way. . . It smacks of a creative triumph. . .

So the next logical step in the success dance, when you're looking for a reader for your illustrated version of the book -- a play along reader perhaps . . . I'm submitting this audition tape for your consideration. He can deliver good demographics = $ales!

No? How about this audition for a more rhythmic delivery of the hammy? (Go to 8:15 on the counter)

Hi Sandy, I’ve just had to Google all this green eggs n ham business. The Seussville website is great fun :D. Apparently the book is also remarkable as it only uses 50 different words. Must be my age, but I never got to read them myself or to my son when he was a nipper.

Really like the airbrush work (Roger Dean’ish!) - the eggs almost glow off the canvas. I’d be careful though, judging by their elongate shape, I think they might be velociraptor eggs :eek: :D

Oh D Akey I have tears coming from my eyes. Thank you. I loved that episode with Jesse Jackson-a classic, he was simply fantastic! and the Three Stooges...:eek::D:D:D! Oh my gosh! Thanks dear friend. I had just popped in to visit and you've made my evening!:D:D:D:D:D:D What a laugh, thanks!:D

Thanks so much Ice. I was so ticked with myself, when I made the second one, I saved over the first one. I can remake this border though and I am so pleased you liked it. Thanks so much for your kind comment!
I also wanted to add that I like your signature, I feel the same way...I have other art programs, but would dearly miss AR!
