Green Owl Garage

This owl was found on the side of a garage. I immediately thought of  Timothy Price from Off Center Not Even.

I know his owls are different, but Tim is the only one I know with owls living on his property.

Someone hewed down the dead tree where the owls made their home.

Tim made another nest, in the same area, with many attributes of the old nest.

He went toa lot of effort. Will the owls find the new nest?

I sure hope so! Thank you, Tim!

Dear John II

Good Afternoon, Agent 00 toon!

We have a situation in the alleys. Bugs has been sent in undercover.

He’s discovered a lot of dissent amongst the cartoon world. Seems you’ve been playing faves, with Looney Tunes. Other cartoon franchises have become agitated.

Rover Dangerfield feels he has no respect. Perhaps he should have a chat with Wile E. Coyote? He gets no respect, and he’s a Looney Tune!

The other cartoons feel like they’re being driven off a cliff. Again, they should speak with Wile E. Being driven off a cliff is all in a days work.

Still, protest and defiance grows. Darkwing Duck is demanding “more paint” to paint more Disney Characters!

Me, I’m hiding out in a crazy black and white mural.

I’m not pink, so no one will spot me, and I’ve got a great vantage point.

Oh No! Boris Badenov is about to throw a fusion bomb!!!  All  animals  and  humans  will be fused with cartoons. No one will be spared if they enter the alley!

  Anyone with  half  a brain  is  fleeing.

I repeat; half a brain!!!!

IT’S TOO LATE!

Poor guys never stood a chance!  Agent 00 toon, I trust you’ll take care of this situation?!

Your mission is to restore order to the lanes & alleys!

Whorls of My Mind

Okay, I’m way behind visiting blog pals! I dislike the reader, and prefer to visit your actual blogs. I need to try and catch up!

Charlotte Hoather’s Art Gown needs me to focus until I get a good start. After all, it will be the first Art Gown that I will be sending to someone to actually wear. She’s my fave soprano, and is the 1 person I know who actually needs gowns.

Drawings are done for the next Gowntoons instalment, on Art Gowns.

I need to work on the post, and AGM Holly’s input is critical. So, I need time for emails, critique and whatever else the 2 of us do.

Time – the most intoxicating perfume of all. With this time I’ll visit you from GLAM or from Art Gowns. I look forward to visiting!

When I return with my next GLAM post, I should be all cleared up….maybe.

Unsigned, I think I know, but guessing is just guessing.

Debris Darling

She’s a pretty face.

I can’t believe I hadn’t found this before, on one of my many trips to Kensington Market.

It’s obviously several years old, and I’ve been down the alley a few times.

Ah, but I hadn’t turned the corner in the alley, before.

Why? I figure all those black plastic rat traps put me off. However, now with Toronto’s new mushroomed rat problem, I have gotten used to seeing them run by, in the daytime.

I’m glad I found her. She’s a darling, and there is something satisfying about finding treasure in the trash.

As I exited the alley, I noticed the shop on the corner had 2 mandala wall hangings for sale. I immediately thought of Graham Stephan – Mandala Vihara

Fake Street Art

I saw a sliver of this eye from a half block away. It was in a side lane, a perfect place for street art.

I hate jay-walking so I went 1 block back to the street light. I arrived at the art ‘s lane only to find a locked gate; behind parking for 2.

1/2 a block away I found a semi blocked off path/slot between 2 buildings.

50ft. later I was in a dead end lane, but it lead to the eye.

The Eye lead to the cheat – Valentino

Broken hearted, yet intrigued … why is the art so catchy, yet inaccessible?

A person like me might do what I did to get to see the art, only to realize it is a Valentino ad.

Was I baited?
