National Geographic

As some of you may already know, I’ve been trying to develop some artistic skills lately.  My goal is to be able to execute facepainting designs for kids.  In some of my research on the subject I turned to wikipedia, but was a bit surprised by the first illustration on this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_painting

Aside from being a slightly unusual portrayal, I’m kind of curious to know what this guy was thinking.  Did it go something like this:

You know what would make my unicycle even cooler?  Juggling!  Still not enough though…  I need a court jester costume, but that is so last week…  I know! I’ll go with a partial body painted jester suit… But where can I find the kind of hippies who won’t object to that?  The summer solstice festival!  Perfect!

I’ll say one thing for him, he is definitely a confident risk taker.  The chance of falling injury here seems unpleasant enough to avoid this particular fashion statement.

  2. I love how he still wears sensible shoes. :)

    Oh, and it totally answers a question I’ve left unasked about guys who ride bicycles…

  4. You know, the best thing I can say about that picture is that, bad as it is, it’s probably worse from behind.

  5. @Cris – maybe the image should be cross-linked to the bike riding section =)
