His Mind Raced by ursulav His Mind Raced by ursulav
...unfortunately, it did not race particularly well, and failed to even place at the Cerebral Derby. Dreams of a Triple Crown dashed, and after disappointing showings on several tracks, it was put out to pasture on a ranch out west, where it became a favorite of the ranch hands for its good nature and willingness to gallop. In later years, small children fed it sugar, it had several other brains to loaf around the pasture with, and was probably about as happy as a mind gets. So that worked out.

-----

....yeah. I have NO idea. This is a fairly quick and straightforward piece, more to get that image out of my head than to make great art!

I nearly suffocated when I saw this because I was yawning and then I started laughing and then I stopped breathing.

This'll interest you: My Dad works in an advertising industry, a very classy place, as a copywriter (he who writes copy, not he who copywrites). Anyway, for a company called Jupiter he, and a few others, were employed to make a series of advertisments. Jupiter is some financial management company, by the way. Anyway, one of his most memorable lines in the series (for me at least) was "Fast Brains Approaching". I thought that was kind of relevant.

If you ever go through London, look for the Jupiter ads. My dad did them!

Love it! Reminds me of an episode of Futurama when giant brains attempt to take over the earth and Fry is the only one who can stop them because he is brainless. Beautiful work :D

Straightforward?
Technically, perhaps. I'm not one to judge that. I can tell it goes along with your style of painting/drawing in other works, which is a good thing in my book.
Mentally, not by a long shot! Not even by a very long shot! Which is even better in my book ;)

Does it not occur to you that to get such imagery out of your head is the making of great art?
