new abc's


Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.

I am pretty sure that I have some sort of disease that makes me think of a bunch of random things and I can not find any peace until I get it out of my head. This time around it has resulted in creating a set of flash cards illustrating my new version of ABC's. Words often represent more than their material literal counterparts, whether it stems from a metaphor, an idiom, pop culture, or plain old personal experiences. What I have created I suppose is a grab bag of all of those things, unleashing my damn dam, and flooding you with some dumb connections that are pretty self-serving and silly. I would say "enjoy" but I can't really promise that.

This is brilliant! It also made my brain feel funny (in a good way) as it was all a left brain/right brain jumble with each flash card.

Jordan, wow that is quite a compliment, thanks!

Lisbee, I had not really thought about it... sort of made them on a whim but I guess I could give it a shot.
