Fun With MS Paint and Why Mr. Bizzle Rules

I've recently been introduced to a new blog called Hyperbole and a Half and I can't get enough of it.  If you've never heard of it, do yourself a favor and check it out here. The blogger uses hilarious drawings to illustrate her posts, which I think is a very fun and creative way to get your point across.  In fact, I was so inspired that I decided to give it a shot myself using MS Paint.  How hard could it be?  All I needed to do was find the right material and I'd be on my way.

Enter Mr. Bizzle.  This morning he announced that he was going to cut down a tree in our side yard that was dropping branches like crazy and could possibly topple over onto our house.  I immediately shot down his idea, knowing full well that the tree would end up falling on: a.) Mr. Bizzle, b.) the dog, or c.) the house (oh, the irony).  Since Mr. Bizzle is half pirate/half mountain man and relishes such challenges, there was no way I was going to stop him.  But then I thought to myself, "This could be the perfect scenario to blog about using MS Paint!" and I decided that it was worth the risk.  So, I observed and I waited and I came up with what I thought would be a funny idea.  Then I sat down at my computer and got to work on my illustrations. To my surprise, MS Paint is a lot harder to work with than I had anticipated.  This is the end result:





So anyway, um, it looks like I'm going to go back to the old way of blogging.
