A very ambitious reworking of Vinnie & The Plant.
This was a four day project and really pushed me to learn some new tricks and treats in Photoshop.
I’m actually quite happy with how it came out which is great considering I was thinking of scrapping it just this morning.
If you want to see the original and read the poem CLICK HERE.
Vinnie was born with a green thumb
he really knew how to grow plants,
He won every contest he entered
and killing them, there was no chance,
But with all the time spent with foliage
there wasn’t much time to make friends,
Then one day he found a strange seed
and took it home to pot and to tend,
But the plant grew six feet in one night
and Vinnie was shocked when he saw it,
A sight that would fill most with fright
but Vinnie was happier than shit!
But he jumped when he heard a voice
say “Feed me Vinnie, I’m hungry!”,
Vinnie asked “What food is your choice?”
The plant said “It’s people for me!”
So Vinnie went out in search for food
he brought back Hobo’s and Hookers and such
But the pressure of killing and feeding
for Vinnie it just was too much,
So he tried to run away one night
cause the plant had destroyed his soul,
But the plant knew what Vinnie was planning
and the plant just swallowed him whole!
“Few if any seemed to have grasped the Principle of Reality; new knowledge leads always to yet more awesome mysteries. Greater physiological knowledge of the brain makes the existence of the soul less possible yet more probable by the nature of the search.”
― Stephen King, The Gunslinger
Moved into a house with a beautiful garden this year. It’s so nice to be able to walk in the backyard and take pictures of something more interesting than rocks…
