"Enhancing" Pictures of Friends

Lately I've taken to modifying photos with my amazing MSPaint skills. This started when a picture reminded me of something, so I added drawings, like these cheetah cubs that look like a band.

My joy of photo modification progressed, and when finding pictures of friends in conducive poses, I would pull them out of the photo and put them... say... riding a dinosaur, or in a box. Please enjoy my latest creations. Some drawings are better than others. I know a lot of people wouldn't want their picture on the intra-webs, so the faces have been... tastefully altered.

(this friend has a chocolate allergy... the horror!)

I drew this dude without a picture model to go by... but hey, Land Before Time reference?

And now, the person who foolishly allowed me to take a picture of him riding a donkey statue and started this madness....

Clearly, I did not draw the raptor above, I only merged the pictures... but I couldn't pass up a monocle/top hat wearing raptor riding a bike

I felt bad for having used a non-drawing for the previous raptor, so I created one. I like to call this pogo-raptor, due to his unusually long legs.

More to come? We shall see. I'm not sure if any of these people will allow me to take pictures of them again.

Again with the slacking

I was supposed to have things to do today, but the progress of our IT department (not the local one, the University-wide one) has been mind-blowingly awful. I mean, really bad. So a meeting I though I had today is going to be tomorrow (I think, unless he randomly decides to cancel it again), which means I have to mess up my schedule more to stay late so we can talk with some Australians. Here is a picture of what I'd LIKE to do to our IT guy, versus what I can do:

And think of the poor Australians, stuck on the other end of the line, while he dithers and dathers about not doing things he's supposed to be doing!

I mean, granted, the koala still looks happy, but still. Being "project manager" on the stupid database is so much more effort than it's worth, or than I'm being compensated for... so ya know what? I don't feel so bad messing with MS Paint now that my urgent tasks are done. So, here's an owl.
Yeah. Owl THAT, IT guy.

So it's friday

I have been so productive all week. For a long time, really. My job doesn't really allow much time to do anything. But today... TODAY I TOOK FOR MYSELF. Well, I did work too, but I made some MSPaint things too.

A Toucan
(the names of these creatures were not chosen by me)

A sugar glider

And a wolf.

Hope you like! Can't promise when I'll update next.
