Should a Giraffe ever tell you a joke, you had better laugh fully, lest he dress you in garb most embarrassing and make you stand at attention for a good part of the day.

Inspired by Heath Ledgers Joker in the movie Dark Knight and my fondness for Giraffes.

Photomanipulation self portrait with textures, and multiple layers in PS Elements, with final coloring in Topaz Adjust.

Canon 7D, f/7.1, .5 sec, ISO-100, 28mm

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.

    This is a great pastiche my friend. And a little disturbing but I guess that is part of the aim.

    No intentions actually, other than to let it speak to the viewer whatever it may. Thanks for the comment Derek.
