What People Are Saying About Penny

"I like to think of you as a high priced call girl that the unwashed masses can't afford--like Woody Allen's Whore of Mensa. It's not your fault that people offer $10 blowjobs on the street corner. It's not an insult if somebody doesn't buy your art." -Alexandra J Walters

"Once Penny was making her own silk thread, and a midget appeared. Before he could open his ugly mouth, without looking up, she exclaimed, 'Rumpelstiltskin. Now get the fuck out of here.' Fairytale Over."- Beth Featherstone

"Penny can push a needle through a telephone pole without a thimble." -Shane Blaufuss

"When a man asked Penny, 'What’s the meaning of life?' She looked at him for exactly 3 minutes, completely still, until he cried. That man’s name was Steve Jobs."- Beth Featherstone

  2. My favorite part of the comments on that article is how people were like "yeah, seriously - show people what goes into it. What? Oh! We're *against* that? We don't like them? Oh, ok. DEATH TO PEOPLE WHO WANT TO DEMONSTRATE HOW THINGS ARE MADE WITHOUT TIMELAPSE."

    Keep up the good work. :)

  3. Thank you Jane! I'm trudging along on it!

    Miss Giddy- Uggo. There's so many things fantastically absurd about that article and the comments. At best it's hilariously narrow minded, at worst it inches towards "degenerate art" speech. I suspect the main motivation behind it was to promote the authors business, craft "marketing".

    I think it was a ham-fisted attempt at, "This site has a lot of buzz around it, but this is a "bad" way to "market" yourself. What do you think? But the way, I sell marketing packages for 100 bucks an hour. So... You know... *Cough Cough*. "

  6. OMG, Ernst Haeckel - Siphonophorea Discolabe! That guy is a genius and you captured it beautifully. I bet that's taken a long time. The blues on your rendition are gorgeous. I'm very impressed. :)

    BTW my favorite Haeckel plate is Discomedusea Desmonema.

  7. Thank you hedge! This piece started as a shaggy dog joke that I thought was hilarious, and now 240+ hours into it, it turns out the joke's on me. Maybe when I finally finish it it will be funny again? *quiet sobbing*
