i’m jealous of wayne white

wayne_white

When I found these, I actually felt my soul being crushed by the weight of the jealousy.  I have a studio full of thrift store landscapes that I’ve been collecting for about a year. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them, but believe you me, it was gonna be AMAZING… but Wayne White beat me to it! He got to the thrift store first, bought all of the best vintage landscapes, and then {just to add insult to injury} he knew exactly how to change these 1970’s Bob Ross-ish oil paintings into modern, typographic masterpieces. LUV HURTZ indeed… I think my soul needs a bandage.

    My heart is breaking right along side yours. I’m going to go sob into a pillow now and curse God for not giving me this kind of talent.

    good idea! maybe i’ll go do the same… i don’t know if it will help, but it certainly couldn’t hurt.

    I know that feeling. Very much.
    This is great, by the way. Simply very imaginative and transforming.

    Hey guys, remember that when you read about Wayne, is that he has been constantly working in some sort or another in creative endeavors….so his moment of inspiration has a big resovoir of time and lots of work…and testing what works and does not work and how something looks and does not look right…so alas…the message here is like Wayne, work feverishly all the time…and do not think inspiration will come out of nothing…it comes out of something big…and lots and lots of work. Think of our selves as visual scientists…always testing our current hypothesis…and then moving , evolving on to the next , hopefully finding out big discovery of eureka. It happens….remember…we are visual scientists, or experimentors….

    yes, that’s very true. here’s the link to his wikipedia profile… did you know that he was a set & puppet designer {and even some of the voices} on ‘pee wee’s playhouse’. i loved that show!… did i just totally date myself?!

    gahhh, these are fantastic!

    That happened with the invention of the light bulb and telephone. Imagine how you’d feel if someone beat you to that.
    But these are lovely.
    Very nice.
