Sidewalk Arts 2006

Has it already been a year? Looks like it's time for the annual Sidewalk Arts Festival...

This year I drew on square 637 of the "alumni" section, which was a little nicer because of the generous elbow room. For some reason, the image of an illustrated portrait of Poseidon, Greek God of the oceans, came to me the other day.

Now I always knew this guy as "Poseidon" but everyone kept passing by saying, "Look, it's Neptune!" Greek or Roman, I suppose it was better than the "Look, it's the Little Mermaid's dad" comments...

This is Poseidon shortly after losing a contest with Athena over the patronage of Athens. That would explain the crossed arms and pouty disposition, in case you were wondering. In my version, he's a bit skinnier than the typical muscle-head versions out there. It just seems a skinnier guy would swim better...

As usual, I took photos of other squares I enjoyed for various reasons.

War of the Wombs

Ok, I'm not one to condone living vicarioiusly through the lives of celebrities, but WHAT were the chances of Tom and Katie having their baby on the same day as Brooke Shields after all that scientology smack talk? Is this proof of a greater force at work here? Probably not...

For those of you suddenly concerned that these coincidental births will throw off the balance of the universe, I say to thee, "Rest easy, weary human for eventually Brad and Angelina's super-baby will rise and restore that delicate balance..."

Gators Win!

Ahem, I have tried to capture my mood following the National Championship game vs. UCLA. Now I will be walking around my apartment the rest of the night with a goofy smile. Gators win! Gators win! Gators win! Gators win! Gators win! I gotta's great to be a Florida Gator!

What a great game...what a fun season. You can't get any better than winning both the SEC tournament and the NCAA tournament in the same year. Even better, it's the first basketball championship in school history. For some reason too, it feels like the value of the diploma on my wall just went up...

The Big Dance

What a season it's been for the Gators! Sure Tennessee and SC beat us twice this year but we're going to the championship game. Having just watched the end of the Final Four game vs. George Mason, I'm only relieved only for the moment as the anticipation and anxiety builds for Monday night's game. Having intense school spirit can be pretty stressful at times, but it's all worth it if your team wins. Go Gators!
