Sometimes a smile can be more sad.
...All he wanted was to live a normal life.
His subtleties and contradictions. Can you see?
My interpretation of the poem. I thought he made the decision himself. Such a tragedy, indeed.
If there are suggestions and opinions, I'd be very grateful to hear. :) I'm thinking of making a silent comic strip based on the literature when I get the time after our exams~ hopefully I could push through! (on my exams, I mean) xD
I hope you enjoy ♥
EDIT: The unedited version is linked below in the Resources so it's easier to manipulate. Have fun!
Well, well I had a red and an ivory bag for the popcorn, but I went with black - more elegant - Hehehe :-) The candy didn't quite look the way I wanted it to, but... oh well. I'll give it another try later. I'll make it cuter. I mean, sexy. It's-gonna-be-sexy! :-) Hahaha
I loved G R L's popcorn and pop (soda), but thought the popcorn needed butter! I figured I'd do my best to make the background transparent. Anyone who uses it can probably fix the flaws!

JESTERLADY - A Poem
I'd like to say a few words about Jesterlady
That I'm sure you'd like to hear
Always with a smile on her face
And a flower tucked behind her ear
She is so supportive of others
And has so much love to share
We eagerly wait for her weekly albums
To see if our RECords are there
When we are sad and need comforting
She'll give us a hug to brighten our day
If we are in darkness
Like a beacon of light, she'll show us the way
She doesn't see anything wrong
With foxes and bunnies holding hands
Whenever raindrops fall
She can hear them tap dance where they land
She organized the skeletons in her closet
One lazy afternoon
Jesterlady would love to travel the world
Holding onto a little red balloon
That we find that special someone in our life
Is her heartfelt wish
And so, in this joyous season, Dear Jesterlady,
I would like to tell you this
Your wonderful words of encouragement
I'm really so grateful for
HitRECord would not be the same
Without you inspiring me to do more
Even though I live in India
From you that is so far away
Distances are insignificant
As I send you love on this Christmas day
I am so blessed to know you
Thank you for being my friend
Please know that whenever you are in need
On me you can always depend
I don't know how to make a video
Illustrating is something I can't do
I hope these words can convey
The love and respect I have for you....
MERRY CHRISTMAS JESTERLADY!!
When I was told by Kat that my Secret Santa friend was Jesterlady, I was excited and nervous at the same time because I didn't know what I was going to do. I went through most of Jesterlady's Reel and used the tiny stories she has written.
P.S. The snowman was drawn by my niece, I painted it on glass ;D
Here's my take on illustrating The Man with a Turnip for a Head, paper-cut style. I've been wanting to do something with this story for a long time, and I'm excited that we'll be working to make it into a short film for Sundance!
From the show at the Vista Theater in April 2011.
I teach English Lit at a small-ish university. This year, my foundational learning outcome for my first-year intro lit class was: "Let them leave the class knowing that art is ALIVE." ...
Every morning when she woke up, the little pine stretched and stretched to the tips of her thousands of tiny needles.
But this morning was differen...
"I think you want Homicide Depot
It's down the road just a bit further.
But I'd watch my step there, miss, if I were you--
Their holiday crowds can be murder."
Took this before I discovered hitRECord and all of it's awesomeness. At the time these struck me as lonely and beautiful, so I took this picture. I just rediscovered this while looking through some old photos and I yelled "AGAIN BY HEART!" I took that as a sign that this picture belonged on the site and here it is.
you are built
i look to you
So, starting on this edition I'm doing my best to sort through the people who accidentally added their stuff up as a collab instead of RECord before I put it up. Basic rules are - if you have no words and no pictures, I don't add the collab on the list OR if I see you have a RECord by the exact same name with the same text in the collab, I pretty much assume you didn't mean to make it a collab. That's just sort of a simplification for me. If you notice your collab was done in the timeframe for the Count Down and it didn't show up, let me know I missed it so I can add it in the following week.
Also, I decided to add a "feature". Since RegularJOE is our boss, if he puts up a collab that shows up on the Count Down, I'll put a red button on it so you know that RECord came from up top.
'kay, that's about it today :) Cheers!
The connections we make through art cannot be overstated,
Art makes us see and feel we’re all related.
Art opens the soul to the world around,
It shows ...
