These are my favorite!
My bff's gallery just purchased this film. I want a still so bad.
Hell I want to bunk with these party animals.

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Do you know how often I have wanted to put my horse in my room? Love it!!

Clorivak said...

Animals in sleazy hotels?? can't get much better than that. ^_^ I so want to party with Mr.Owl,He totally knows how to party. He rips that feather pillow shit up!!!

TERI REES WANG said...

It's all about the Owl.
Fo'realz.

Diane said...

mr. owl! love him!

Brooke said...

So cool. However, I do believe the animals' migration patterns make a lot more sense than mine! At least they pretty much know where they're going and when. I love the owl, especially.

bananas. said...

sometimes i feel like that big buffalo in a lonely room...

Lynn said...

Great Mr OWL!!
I also enjoyed your vacation pics. Been there several times! People in other states, (There are OTHER states???) need to know that California and LA aren't synonymous. Good work.
When I got to the picture of the Thomas Kincaid tribute, I was surprised until I saw your caption. Whew!
The reason he is still around tells us a lot, doesn't it?
Schmendriks abound in the USA!

gotta love the unexpected

Milly said...

Phoenix said...

LOL that horse looks so confused!

Elizabeth Marie said...

I associate with the horse today. Let's not even go go there. BLAHHHHHHH


In other news, I hope you have a lovely Tuesday my dear! XO

Diana said...

The last one is so eerie but hilarious all at once! Like most of the artist you choose, I tend to overanalyze!

Annie said...

the first one with the owl is my favorite! how neat! the buffalo seems lonely and the horse seems confused...
thanks for sharing!

...love Maegan said...

I LOVE the first one. These are fab!

Hanako66 said...

so rad...the owl is amazing!!!

i just saw a herd of cows on the side of the road...i'm not kidding, it was so surreal. strange timing to come back to my computer and find this gem!

Iva said...

these are awesome! totally going to read more on the artist! I'm loving the first one.

Cheryl said...

Clever images. The first two are really beautiful. I'll have to read more about the artist when I have time, thanks for introducing him to us!

BF and I need that owl in our backyard. found rats eating bird food. : (

Gabby said...

The owl is my fave. You always post the most interesting stuff, love it.

diane said...

Somehow the horse in the middle of the room sums up my life. I haven't quite figured out why.

blueviolet said...

Those are really surreal and cool.

jennifer from pittsburgh said...

The horse is the best! A little attitude, but not too much. The bison is too enigmatic, like a furry sphinx or something ;)

Phoenix said...

Thanks for the kind photo comments! And Judas Priest kicks ass. I'm so jealous that you got the "right on" nod...even when I'm in the car rocking out to Metallica or The White Stripes or Motley Crue, I'm still bopping in my car like a retarded muppet...I don't get many nods.

...yeah...

one little simitopian said...

Very interesting! Who would think to get a horsey into the bedroom? Er, that sounded wrong...oh shit, why do I always manage to sound like I'm into bestiality? I mean,it's an unusual context in which to place an animal.
O.o
I like the owl! (Not in THAT way)

thereddeer said...

The owl is cool - what a great pic!

Rachel Follett said...

I really like the thought evoking aspect to these photos. Very cool!

Katie said...

I love the owl photo!

bryna said...

wow, crazy art!

E said...

How the hell did they get them out again?? Kidding aside, I love how disconcerting these are.

alissa said...

he should do one with an elephant in the room. and then at a gallery someone will be like ooo whats with the elephant in the room and their friends will be taken aback and start talking about the real issues you know.
ok nevermind :)

Ela said...

Certainly love this as art. But I really don't want to walk into a room and see that :)

p.s. I'll take 6lbs for sure! Can I pick where it goes though?

Sam said...

Oh LOVE! The first shot!!! It looks like he's been uber cheeky and has been bouncing up and down on the bed and now he's being all composed and like "What?" They are all great shots - love the animals!!

Alicia said...

Love that first pic so much... especially as that owl looks so like my cat! (If you met her, you would understand!!)
