World Builder

(Run your cursor over the image to see the detail. It may take a moment to load.)

This is a computer print from May of 1999.

It may look like it's just a still life; but there is a story behind it! If you look closely on the poster, you will see that it's the first few hypothesis from my famous Theory of Cat Gravity, which is my Pet Theory. Part of the Theory explains how the gravity leaks out of the bed and lands underneath it (this, of course, is after the cats have transformed the solar rays into gravity - you can read the whole theory in book form, if you like.)

The person who is making the tiny world in a bottle has utilized this part of the theory, underlined in purple crayon, to amplify the gravity beneath the bed, thereby obtaining enough gravity to make normal household dust coalesce into a bitsy planet. (Of course, the "seed" was a chip from the concrete basement floor - you have to know the Theory!)

It's all explained on the notes underneath the bottle. Too bad the stuff on top of them is covering it all up!

All in all, a fun piece about silly theories carried to illogical extremes.

(By the way, the poster itself is available as a separate piece titled Cat Gravity Poster, and the text is on that page if you want to read it. (But remember, it is copyrighted.)

This picture was made in Strata® StudioPro 2.5, with image maps and textures constructed in Adobe® Photoshop® 5. I also retouched it just a tad in Photoshop (about 10 minutes worth!)

This print is now available from my Zazzle store. Prints from Zazzle aren't signed, but you can choose any size you want, printed on any of the various Zazzle papers (from cardstock to canvas.) The default size is 11x14 inches. But you can get it printed in any size you want.

Prints from Zazzle come without a frame or mat, but you can have them framed if you want to.

Besides all of that, you have more payment choices at Zazzle, and they ship more quickly. So moving things there seemed like a win-win to me.

So, go to the World Builder print in the Zazzle store if you'd like one!
