Happy Thanksgiving

Today is a national holiday here in the USA. We set this day aside to give thanks for the benefits we’ve enjoyed in the previous year. Unfortunately, it’s changed from a day of feasting and family to a minor event.

Christmas shopping is the big deal, and we want to forget all about the Pilgrims, Indians, and turkeys. I have to work tomorrow, so my family will have to do their Black Friday shopping without me – darn it.

I’m thankful for the many friends I’ve made through this medium. I’ve met mentors, mentees, fans, friends, and colleagues here. I hope next year brings even more.

I find inspiration in many places, music, people watching, film, and art. Today, I want to talk about art. There is an outstanding artist named, Jaroslav Weiczorkiewicz. He is a photographer with mad Photoshop skills. He is replicating the old-school pinup art, but putting his unique spin on things. He basically throws milk at his models, and takes thousands of photographs of the resulting splash. Then he goes into the studio and uses Photoshop to create one image of the model wearing a milk dress.

These have been around for a few years now, and I was always impressed by them. It takes a unique mind to come up with something like this, and a patient and talented person to pull off the final product.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Lisa Burton would like to remind you all to save room for dessert today. Happy Thanksgiving from Entertaining Stories.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving! At least there’s the big parade, but I’m not sure if that’s just an east coast thing. I’ve avoided the big chain stores all month, so is the Christmas invasion just as bad as last year?

    Sorry you have to work tomorrow.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving, Craig! I love Lisa’s new picture. I’ve seen some of those photos you described—amazing work. Lisa’s artist did a great job replicating it. We like to keep the old tradition of family getting together and having a nice big Thanksgiving dinner and then just hanging out. I don’t do the ‘Black Friday’ thing. It’s madness over here. People go nuts, it’s not worth it.😬

  8. Hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving, Craig.I’m actually off today (sitting in a Panera’s cafe with my Mac). Fantastic look for Lisa, but then she can wear anything—even milk.

  9. You are one of the people I’m thankful for this year, Craig. I hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday.

    • Aw, thank you. You mean a lot to me too. We had a great time, and I hope you did too.

      I suppose I should have given a nod to the photo models patience too. Standing there in the alltogether while someone throws milk at you for hours probably takes some moxie too. (Hope they warm it up first.)

      • Can’t really complain when the family is together. It happens so infrequently these days. It was a really nice day.

        And, yeah, we should give it up for the model. Pretty sure you couldn’t pay me to do that…
