Teacher’s pet Bud-erfly

day-15-teacher

Day 15 – Make something inspired by an important teacher in your life.

Bud Webster was, has been, will always be one of my favorite teachers. He led a writer’s critique group of which I am still a member, even though he’s no longer with us. Bud was genuinely passionate about the written word, brilliant and funny as hell.

I did my best to capture his quirkiness. A sad smile tugs at my mouth every time I pull this image up. I posted it almost immediately to his fan page on Facebook. But, somehow, it never made it to my blog.

So for punishment, I’ll sacrifice a live squid…

Franken-fly monster?

Day 25 – Break something and make something new with the parts.

I’m really starting to feel Halloweeny…

I “broke” apart several digital butterflies and made a new Frankenstein butterfly with the parts.

What’s a lonely monster to do…?

 

Good day, Sunshine!

Day 23 – Interpret your favorite song lyrics.

I have a lot of favorite songs. Good Day Sunshine by the Beatles captured my inspiration for this challenge.

Good Day Sunshine

The Beatles

Good day sunshine, good day sunshine, good day sunshine
I need to laugh and when the sun is out
I’ve got something I can laugh about
I feel good in a special way
I’m in love and it’s a sunny day

Good day sunshine, good day sunshine, good day sunshine
We take a walk, the sun is shining down
Burns my feet as they touch the ground

Good day sunshine, good day sunshine, good day sunshine
Then we’d lie beneath the shady tree
I love her and she’s loving me
She feels good, she knows she’s looking fine
I’m so proud to know that she is mine.

Good day sunshine, good day sunshine, good day sunshine
Good day sunshine, good day sunshine, good day sunshine
Good day sunshine, good day sunshine, good day sunshine
Good day…

Getting my walk on…

Day 18 – Take a walk outdoors and create something using exclusively the materials you find along the way.

Just a few of the interesting things I come across on my two block walk from my office to the parking deck:

The courtyard in front of the office building…window displays and a leaf print in the concrete, two friendly iron critters…
