Are You One of Those?


Before I get to "Are you One of Those"….
  I decided to play with a sketch I did in my journal.  It wasn't really intended but I always thought she resembled Drew Barrymore.
I first changed the image to black and white and worked with some filters and text….a quote from Ms. B of course.
I did a different take by keeping the color and adding filters and a fun vector.
…and finally for Texture Tuesday.  I used two copies of Kim's Antiques Texture over sepia.

Okay, on to my topic for today.
I see them everyday walking through a parking lot or across the street transfixed on their smartphones.  The other night hubby and I were at a restaurant waiting for a table, standing in the lobby with many others.  Almost everyone of them was on his smartphone. A couple sat on a bench each playing with his/her phone.  Didn't they come together???
So here's what I have to say for that….
I totally cracked up when I saw this!

Ah you are just so talented Marilyn! I love your drawing and she very much resembles Drew! Love the edits on each one. The sign....Perfect! Bravo!

Very beautiful, wonderful face full of tenderness!

Your art astounds me. I really can't draw a decent stick figure, so I admire anyone who has such ability. And your photo is funny--and makes a good point!

Fun photo edits, but it's your drawing talent that I'm really admiring!

LOVE the sign. My family is not allowed to get on the phone while eating dinner, no matter where we are. Your images are very creative, so many different options. I can't draw at all, I think that is why I love photography. :)

Great processing! I really love the TT version, and also the one just above it.

Have a nice weekend,

it's rather a fun extension to be able to play more with your art with the digital applications Marilyn. Really nice what you created each time over. The wi-fi sign, I had the same sentiment post from a restaurant on north coast, some time back. I thought it very clever also.

that kitchen sign should hang in everyone's kitchen!
