    Great work! My only concern is that it does not seem to have a focus subject on it. Add something really cool or highlight something you want to emphasize. Aside from that, I find it really artistically...

  • Stocking is the new planking

    Hilarious internet meme. I think it beats planking hands down! ROFL.

    Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.

      Sorry for the "duh," but can someone tell me what "stocking" and "planking" are?

          Planking is a recent internet meme. Here are some planking pics.
          Stocking is a new meme where folks replicate stock photo images for fun.

          From some random site I found:
          To play, all you have to do is find a stock photo of somebody doing one of the mundane things that are featured in stock photos, and then try to replicate that pose as best you can. The blog Stocking Is the New Planking is the official clearing house for these images of imitation, a few of which you can check out below.


          This ironing one cracks me up...

            Ah, thanks, gotcha. Basically flag-pole-sitting and phone-booth-stuffing for the 21st century.

              They showed Stocking on the CBS Early Show this past weekend as the latest trend. Once they do that the trend should be over. too much time for some people.

                Trends, by who discovers it and when:

                Day 1 - People who were there when it was first posted
                Day 3 - People who keep up with internet memes
                Day 20 - People who frequent general messageboards
                Day 50 - CBS Early Show

                  well, I actually did hear about it before that.
                  but they way they were talking about it and how cool it was.

                  you could add:
                  Day 360 - Day your parents start to mention it and show photos of themselves doing it.
