The Grim Mower by mjranum The Grim Mower by mjranum
Death upgraded from a scythe during the bubonic plague era. During the dot-com bubble he upgraded again. More on that later.

Today I spent a couple hours in the studio experimenting with my new 5D. WOW! I am beside myself with joy at all the spectacular additional detail it records. So.. I thought I'd shoot some stock for people to use for Halloween. When I got the camera I also got this bitchin' radio-remote so I can shoot stock with myself if I get bored. I hear that if you shoot too much stock with yourself, you'll go blind...

I wandered over to my neighbor's and asked if I could borrow his scythe. I knew he'd have one because Bob has one of everything in his garage ("Nuclear air craft carrier...? Sure... there's one around here someplace - take a look under those boxes there...") - and I saw the reel mower. Of course my brain immediately skipped a beat.

Please do not use this image for photocomposites. I am posting a whole set of these to my stock account ( :iconmjranum-stock: ) this evening for stockers to play with.

Eddie Izzard! Brilliant!

If you don't know the bit, follow the link below. Be aware there is some profanity.

I don't know if it's been quoted yet, but:

"All the dead people get in the bin where the grass grows!" -Eddie Izzard
:D

Awesome picture.

Mr Izzard rocks! :D
I'd never even heard of him until I did my death with a lawnmower shot and then lots of people told me about him. Good thing, that!

I'd never heard of him until I posted this and everyone started commenting that they loved him. It's a pretty obvious idea and I doubt he or I were the first to come up with it.

Wow just searching around DA for some interesting grim reaper pictures and I stumble upon this. I must say I love the pulling force of the right side has in this composition. The eye is drawn by the light and contrast then by the guiding lines. I also adore the idea of the lawn being mowed by death himself. A fabulous piece.
