The Scream With i-Pod by theancientofdays The Scream With i-Pod by theancientofdays
This is another re-post. Sorry about that. The next one will be brand-spanking new, I promise.
This is one of my more popular pieces, oil on canvas, about 14" by 18". It's a parody; I was surprised at how easy it was to emulate Munch's style and colour mix - this one didn't really take very long at all. Sadly, the original is still at the gallery. I try to have a sense of humour when painting, and the concept on this one really made me want to go out of my way to make it look right. I literally dreamed this up - I was thinking about why Munch's Scream had his hands over his ears, and decided (in my dream) that it must be because his i-Pod is too loud. :D

Original available.

:D Thanks very much! Since I did this one, I've seen a lot of really clever Scream parodies. When this painting goes on the show circuit, I often get comments like, "Oh. Just a copy." "No! No! Look closer!" :D

That really makes sense! :laughing:

:lmao: Thanks very much! :D When this piece is in shows, a lot of people give me a hard time about "copying" Munch because they don't notice the i-Pod. After having that dream, I just felt like it had to be painted. :D I think Munch would probably smack me if he were still alive, though. :laughing:

Thanks very much! I got to thinking one day, "Now why in the world does he have his hands over his ears?" And then it dawned on me! Of course! His i-Pod is too loud! :D I had to paint it! Munch has a pretty easy style to emulate, so it didn't even take very long. :)

Thanks very much! I'm always pleased when people get the humour in this. When it goes on exhibitions, a lot of the patrons just stand there staring at it. I want so much to run up and say, "You're supposed to be laughing!" :D

Good luck on the scanner hunt. I found a Lexmark scan/print/fax for about US$35, but the quality is a bit "iffy"...

I got my wife a really nice MP3 player for Christmas. She was setting it up yesterday, but she's not very computer savvy.
"Uh, the cursor is stuck, the computer doesn't know I have a device, and it won't turn on anymore."
I shudder to think what she's done to it...XD

Did she put in a CD that came with it?

Well, I told her how to do it. She ran the installation disk and everything, and even managed to get the tunes into her Mediaplayer (she's afraid of 2000 and XP, so she can't do i-Tunes D:). I think what she's done is try to tell it to do too many things at once. I'm going to do a re-boot and troubleshoot, but I hope she can figure out how to use it on her own...XD

Sara is over on Ramona's page, too. I decided I'd better be a stickler about putting the animals up over there and the "not animals" up here. Even though there are different watchers there, Sara's still really popular! I set her as a print because prints of her sell like hotcakes out of the gallery - I got another order for more yesterday!
The Scream was such a hit the first go around, I just had to put it back up! :D

Yes, I'm going to put up the Gorillaz stuff and all the stuff that's related to people in dA - I think it's important. "Serenity Firefly" is one I really like, as is "Marine" - say, come to think of it, you've done pretty well! :D
