Smithson Thus Far... ·


Shaenon: Here it is, even later--but even awesomer--than usual: this month's Skin Horse wallpaper! By popular demand, I have created a design around Unity's recent dubious exclamation when trying to convince Remy he should give her a bunch of extra arms and stuff. For no particular reason, I decided to draw it in a style reflecting my ongoing obsession with 1960s Disney illustration art. If you, too, are science (and aren't we all?), I hope you enjoy it.

As usual, if you make a donation in any amount to the Skin Horse Tip Jar, I will send you a link to the wallpaper. This wallpaper design comes in two different aspect ratios (regular screen and widescreen) to fit most computer monitors and is both Mac- and PC-friendly. Here's the wallpaper page.

Channing: Aw yeah. I mean, you have got to love this wallpaper. Even if you are mental and have not liked any of the other wallpapers thus far, loving this one is pretty much mandatory.

Adam Underfoot (unnatural20) says:

The solid colors and lack of external lines reminds me of early 2000s Scary-Go-Round, too.

Rob (rrreed) says: And Samurai Jack.

Tartakovsky's going to finish that one of these days, hopefully. $^@#%! Cartoon Network and the quest for ratingsā€¦
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Wichita Lineman", Glen Campbell)

I am a zombie, made of science!
And I'm so doggone cute!
Searching coast to coast for some stuff that I can shoot!
And if you see me coming toward you,
Then you're prob'ly gonna die ...
But the girl who is science
Is oh so kawaii!

I am a walking bioweapon,
And you know what that means ...
If you cross my path, you'll be blown to smithereens!
And if you say you'll lend a hand now,
Then I just might catch your eye!
And the girl who is science
Is oh so kawaii!

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

BTW ... today is "Change your profile pic on Facebook to a cartoon character" Day! 

" ... change your profile pic to a cartoon hero from your childhood and invite your friends to do the same. The point of the game? To not see a single human face on Facebook but instead a veritable invasion of childhood memories by Sunday."

Just Here (justhere4coffee) says:

Dogs In Spaaaaaaaace! Even without the heavy lines you can tell Sweetheart's rather perturbed, and probably already trying to decide whose coffee to kick over next time...

Kay Gilbert (kaygilbert) says:

I really do love this wallpaper, which is a great tribute to Mary Blair's work for Disney.  I recently sat through the It's a Western Hegemonic Small World ride at Disneyland again just to enjoy her design, although they still don't make up for that godawful music.  Her best piece, I think, is the enormous ceramic tile wall in Disneyworld's Contemporary Hotel.  I remember seeing pictures in Life magazine when the park first opened, and I was thrilled when I finally it saw it up close.  She also illustrated I Can Fly, my favorite Little Golden Book from my childhood.  Shaenon, you're a worthy successor.

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

Kay, you are waaaay to kind. But it's true that "It's a Small World" is basically my favorite thing in the world.
Rincewind (outworldcats) says: Rob (rrreed): Rob, if you want a little Samurai Jack to tide you over until they (hopefully) continue the series, check out this web-comic. It revoles around a bunch of CartoonNetwork characters, a few years older. Jack is a teacher at their school.
