I Am A Lumberjack I Am Ok
Digital Art - Digital Art - Photo Manipulation
Another one of those crazy clone jobs!
To those who recognize the Monty Python connection (spoofing Canadian He-man Lumberjacks): yeah, you are right - while working on the piece, I couldn't get the song out of my head, so at your own peril, click this video link - the song might follow you around for a while, like it did me........
The thought behind it: It's a "What If" story - there are parasites on plants; in the Pacific rainforest you find so called nurse logs, where new sprouts grow in fallen and decaying logs; we are sometimes invaded by fungus diseases, so why not something larger; I am also thinking of a painting by Arik Brauer that shows a palm tree growing from a date seed in the pouch of a perished bedouin in the desert - so what if a seedling sprouted on my arm, like on a nurse log? It just couldn't wait, I guess ..... What If .......
The idea was in my head for years, wanted to paint it, but never did. So this is the next best thing - a PS job.
