Woomi Paints!

Lately, Woomi has been developing his artistic side. Instead of dribbling a basketball, he's been dribbling paint!  He even dressed the part, though artists rarely wear berets and curly moustaches anymore:


Woomi named his painting: "A Study in Burning: No. 2,  2010", which sounds kinda pretentious to me, but it's up to him. I'm just thrilled my crocheted waffles might have inspired him!

A Study in Burning: No. 2,  2010

It's surprising to discover artsy sides to our alter egos, isn't it?

Bravo for finding new ways to express yourself, Woomi!

  7. Jessica: hehe Yes, Woomi fancies himself to be a snappy dresser. I didn't know berets could be worn at such a rakish angle!

    KelleBelle: I asked Woomi if he was going for a French look or for a Dali look, but he scoffed and replied: "A true painter doesn't explain himself himself through words. Only through paint." Geez, eh?

    Strickbombe: hehe Yes, at least it's only painted smoke. I wouldn't trust Woomi around real fire. Inferno!

    manchurina: I'm not going to tell Woomi about your passionate love for his mustachioed/bereted self because he'll become impossible to live with :D

    Ascasewwen: hehe Yes, Woomi and I are different in many ways but we share a preference for the colour orange. He wears it with more flare than I do though!

    JelliDonut: Wow, I didn't know curly moustaches ware so enticing! I'm going to buy stock in moustache wax next week! :)

    PaisleyJade: Woomi is happy that you like his first painting! He planned to post it on ebay for thousands, but I persuaded him to increase its worth by keeping it for a few more years haha

    woolhug: I like the painted black smoke too! I'm also surprised Woomi was able to avoid getting black paint on his shirt! It's probably on his pants.

  8. (sniff) Well, I for one find this Woomi's work DERIVATIVE, lacking in ORIGINALITY . . . though the (cough) MASSES will probably find his "work" a Postmodern commentary on the nature of the OTHER, the alter-self, the utter lack of new ideas in these DEGENERATE post-post-modern times . . . also, I don't like BLUE.

  9. I.M. Portant: Thank you for your expert art criticism. Thought I'd give you a heads-up: Woomi left me a note saying he was taking a bus to your place, and that he's gonna dump BLUE paint on your house/car. Please take preventative measures! Woomi the Painter has a fierce temper!

    haha Thanks Jen! ;)

  13. Woomi,

    This new house color is FANTASTIC! You, sir, have effectively RE-INVENTED blue! Your best work to date! Unfortunately, the bank foreclosed on my property last week and the house is no longer mine. Whoopsie!

  15. TADA's Revolution: Woomi here. I would very much like to paint with you, my fellow artist. I shall fax you a list of my requirements for my studio-trailer (ie: fresh orange juice, vase of Orange Nassau tulips, peanut-butter cups, etc.) Thank you.

    Miss Julep. Woomi here. Thank you for recognizing my fabulousness. I tip my beret to you.

    I.M. Portant: Woomi here. CURSES!

    KelleBelle: Woomi here. Oui oui, we artists are très sérieux et très passionné!
