330. Bent Objects Skull

Ketchup Painting and Bent Objects. After months of planning I'm extremely excited to present the official Bent Objects/Skull-A-Day crossover! I've been a fan of Terry's clever work on his Bent Objects blog since early on in my own project and it wasn't too long before I proposed that we figure out a way to work together. However, it was only just recently that Terry came up with this brilliant idea. He actually built these characters and mailed them to me to do my thing (which I must admit was quite daunting since he and I have fairly different styles). Thanks Terry!

UPDATE: Per request here's a detail shot of the skull...

Awesome collaboration! Do you have better pictures of the skull? It looks quite creepy.

Crime is a little crazy over your way, but I didnt think it had gotten THAT out of hand!

I absolutely love your crime scene.

So awesome...I love when my favorite blog worlds combine.

Thank you both!

Nikoli said...

The question is, did the ketchup deserve it?

Great work! And yes, that is a very creepy skull.

Mica said...

This makes me unbelievably happy! Great job both of you

Wow. I would've expected the mayonaise to go bad, but I never suspected the mustard!

Tatman said...

I'm so glad that this site doesn't censor my comments so I can say that this is Fucking Awesome! The merger of 2 of my favorite blogs makes me feel this uneasy happiness. Like maybe I'm that jar of mayonnaise who hired the mustard to do the job. I know it's a gruesome way to think, but if those folks in Europe can eat me on their fries, then by God, Americans will too! Viva La Revolucion!

This is awesome! Your blog and his are literally the first 2 blogs that I look at everyday. :-)

There was a day when I would look at this as a titillating scene. After the last few years of working criminal defense, this just looks like work to me.

I would just like to note that while this photo seems to point to ketchup as the culprit, it is FAR from conclusive.

Wow, I've never seen blog people collaborate like this. Cool!

A little late to this party as I was playing Grand Theft Auto IV, then I see this and I'm right back in the game.
Damn you, now I want to go back home.

Great work gentlemen. :)

I guess he just didn't cut the mustard.

Ok I can solve this one Col. Mustard did it in the kitchen with the revolver.

Another victim of the condiment wars.

Mustard was always playing runner up to ketchup, but today ketchup's calming effects no longer worked as Mustard was pushed over the edge. "It's my turn to be a breakfast condiment. I was in plastic long before you" Mustard screamed as it open fired. Relish and Mayo were quickly taken into protective custody as they continue to search for Mustard's cousin "Dijon" still at large.

I would love to make one. How did you do it? Would you mind sharing?

Another Limited Rebellion said...

Thanks everyone!

oh my gosh: it was Colonel Mustard in the Kitchen with the Revolver!
Also: the skull here reminds me of the PB&J double Mona Lisa by Vik Muniz:

I've been a fan of Terry's work for awhile now, but had no idea that he had a blog. Thanks so much for the link!
