98 Reasons For Blogging: 12

Ampersand Duck has led me astray to an excellent site for the procrastinator in everyone called Mr. Picassohead.

I thought I was being clever when I called my effort Thesis Descending Staircase, which I thought would be an homage to a work by Picasso himself (and a suitable comment on the progress of the thesis), but it turns out that before Marcel Duchamp began submitting signed urinals to galleries and daring to call it art, he was a dab hand at Cubism:

Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2 (1912)

Well I think 'Thesis Descending Staircase' has a message all of its own. Good 'un Galaxy.

Noice touches of red to symbolise the bloodshed of actual library research.

Good one Galaxy! Perhaps I should join you with one titled 'Cat being booted down staircase' (See recent entries of my blog!)

Galaxy said...

Mr Picasso Head is so much fun. I could create an entire gallery on my own.

Shado, I think a bit of blood will be very appropriate if you decide to have a go at Mr Picasso Head yourself.

I thought I'd be really bad at this, but my effort - Fu Man Kitchener Wants You - works pretty well, although it's not very Picasso-like.

I think your effort looks a bit Van Gogh-ish with all that facial hair, Tim.
