Mad Scientist Monday #5: Spam, spam, bacon and spam...& more altered book project

Day 189  Our mad scientist of the week is Zane, a character from the Syfy network TV show Eureka.  Oh lordy can that man light a bunsen burner!  Not too happy with the way his character is being written lately but well I'd be pissed too if the network my show was on was cancelling yet ANOTHER successful show, bah whatever enough with the overdramatic fangirl stuff...on with our creations...

Go ahead take a good look... Zane Donovan Credit
This weekend was the Albuquerque Aki Matsuri (Japanese Fall Festival) 2011 ....we look forward to this every year because it is wonderfully cultural, small enough to be enjoyed and they always have some cool art going on...and of course who could forget the good foods to eat!!!

I wait to get one of these every year....my favorite food...masubi
I think this is an odd concoction, what kind of drugs were people on to go hmmm seaweed, rice and oh I KNOW SPAM that will taste wonderful together!!!  And you know what? IT DOES!

Why do I always find myself singing the spam song, even in the grocery store, yep mad as hatters we are....gawd TV life is so boring without the muppets, SNL (and I mean the real SNL not that boring crap they have been touting for the past 20 years I mean the policically incorrect drug alcohol infused hilarity) and Monty Python
Speaking of odd concoctions.....at least their cosplay is creative...lol...the theme of this year's festival was Kabuki and they gave out masks to paint.

Yep we're all mad here...

Yep back to that book.....the cover is coming along nicely and I will show you the prelim sketch tomorrow...for now you will have to make do with some of the fun I have been altering the inside pages...don't worry I will do some better quality pics as soon as it is complete
Sketching--there is a door in the rock the astrodude is pointing at that I drew and a door opening behind him (somehow managed to get both of these outside the pic frame go figure)

paper cut out with fabric sample scrap behind it

post card cut out over the title page

fabric sample scrap collage for the red planet pages

This post was supposed to go out this morning but Google Chrome or the network in our area or both or something else entirely are not playing nicely......so I hope you got to be creative today...see you tomorrow!
