Dichos



While in Santa Fe, I attended the Musuem of Fine Arts. There was one exhibit that I really enjoyed and that was of Frederico Vigil. He created visual images of dichos, words of wisdom, sayings. For example:



(En) boca cerrada no entran moscas. Flies will not enter a closed mouth. (It pays to keep quiet so you won’t put your foot in your mouth.)


And:



Beber con medida alarga la vida. Drinking in moderation prolongs life.

He inspired me to draw a dicho that is very meaningful to me.

There is always room for ice cream.

Something about the French



The other evening, I went to happy hour at a quaint little French restaurant in Seattle. As I sat down with my two friends, listened to the live two person French quartet, our glasses were filled with dark red wine and our crayons were received. Something about the French inspired me to create the colorful pastel explosion on the untainted white paper table cloth. Never before have I painted so vividely and with such life. I don't know whether it was the music, the dim lighting, the atmosphere of class, or the abundance of so many colorful Crayola crayons that inspired by excellence, maybe it was all of the above. But alas, we must stop thinking of the inspiration, and continue to enjoy the Monet rivaled-masterpiece. Feel free to set this as your wallpaper background.

Happy Cat


Why is this cat so happy? Did he save a lot on his car insurance? Did Chappelle decide to return to TV? No no. He's happy because a new episode of Project Runway is on tonight! The cat doesn't actually like the show, but he enjoys any excuse to drink. Check it out: The Project Runway Drinking Game.

Other games for other nights:
Family Guy Drinking Game - This should be pretty versatile, Family Guy is on pretty much ever night, you're set with this.
Ipod Shuffle Drinking Game - Great when your listening to tunes in the car or working out.
Star Jones Drinking Game - Too little too late, now that she's off The View.

Astronaut


Seeing that I am now in Houston, center of the NASA space program, I decided to post a tribute to the astronaut. My brother works on the space program too, so a shout-out to him! And if you've read the news recently, now YOU can be the next John Glen. For a mere $35 million, you can plan your next vacation to space. If you read closely, throw in an extra $15 mil, and you're walking on the space station. So start saving now, or run your luck on those crazy penny stocks, and be an astronaut today!

Worst Movie Ever


I've posted a sucky drawing because that is the theme of today's entry. Things that suck. And the new number one to that list is... Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. I watched this terrible movie Saturday night, the 10:30pm show. After struggling in the front row, taking a few naps, and checking my watch every 10 minutes, I finally was relieved of this horror of a film at 1:30am. So many unnecessaries. Definitly the worst movie ever. Only recommended if you like wasting 10 dollars and sleeping in movie theaters.

Bye Bye Desk


The time has come. Bittersweet as it is, today is my last day at work. Good bye notebooks, post-its, one on ones, and status meetings. Since the day I started posting my masterpieces, my end goal was to leave my job to go on to bigger and better things. Maybe a career in doodling? A fast-paced, high profile career in blogging? But alas, I have chosen the route of academia. This could be good news for fans of OfficePicasso. Though I will not have anymore office doodles, I still hold my bitterness for boring times and boring people. Wait a few months, after my gung-ho-ness for school has settled, and if you're lucky, class note doodles may be born. Remember, the doodling never stops.

Guest Comic


Today we have a special treat, a guest comic from California has provided us with this hilarious cartoon. Mind you, it took my roommate about 30 minutes to help me understand the joke, and I am still going back and forth on the understanding of it. But my roommate assured me it was funny :) Either way, the sketch is amazing. His astronaut and little person actually look like an astronaut and a little person.

Trash


The trash can. One of mankind's remarkable inventions. Where would we put our empty bottles and cans. Well, those go into the recycle bin. But where would be put our banana peels and all the other food we waste? Though trash cans are mostly known for containing trash, I came up with a list of the other ways this magnificent bin can be used.

1. You can hide in it when you play hide and go seek. It's safer than the refrigerator.
2. A great place to put ice and a keg.
3. Was my best friend after this weekend's marathon of drinking. It was right there when I woke up :) The loyalty!
4. Short people can turn it upside down, stand on it. This will make them feel taller.

Any other creative ideas?

A wide array of people enjoy officepicasso each day. From Vietnam, to Sweden, to Texas, I have fans all around the world. Today I'd like to give a shout out to my long time readers: bankers! I know all you bankers are busy counting cash, balancing checkbooks, opening accounts, but you still have time in your busy cash filled day to relax, sit back, and view the online art museum of OfficePicasso. We salute you, bankers. Show me the money!

Electricity


Sometimes I have really funny stories to tell from work, but I don't have a matching sketch. If I am super motivated, I will make the effort to create the drawing. I am not super motivated today, so what I will do is make a weak connection. That should do.

So last Friday, I went to play golf with some friends from work before hitting up the office. Last time I played the morning back 9, my socks and shoes were soaked from the precious morning dew. I knew better this time and brought extra socks and shoes. But what I had forgot, the bottom of my jeans get super soaked as well, which resulted in the uselessness of the extra socks and shoes. The genius that I am, after coming into work, I take my lamp from desk, move it under my desk, plug it into the socket (SEE ABOVE SKETCH), and turn the lamp on. With my bare feet dangling underneath the self-proclaimed heat lamp, my jeans dried in no time. I am soo resourceful.

Jokes and Jokes and Jokes

If I post right at 12:00 ...I think it counts for a Thursday and Friday post. Is it the end of Thurs? Is it the beginning of Fri? Questions that are forever answerless, yet life goes on.

It's that time again...Ocean Jokes! Here are a few to keep you laughing through the weekend:

What sea animal can be adjusted to play music?
The tune-a fish!

Why are fish so smart?
Because they live in schools.

Why did the shark brush its teeth?
So they would look sharp.

Lost


My mom always told me, "You're so irresponsible and forgetful! One day you're going to lose your head." Booyah Mom! My head's still well and attached! In her face! I can't speak the same success for my friend in the sketch above though. Luckily he did not lose his head, but he did lose his second pair of eyes, along with his lovely dark-rimmed Ralph Lauren specs. Keep looking, bro!

sk8ter boi

There is such a thing as too much mascara. Last Halloween I tried to dress up as Avril Lavigne but I ended up looking like a severly gang beaten homeless teen. Oh wait...

Avril Lavigne


Oh..nevermind, I guess I was successful at being Avril.

National Don't Ride Your Bike to Work


I'm all for environmentalist, saving the environment, clean air, etc. I recycle my aluminum cans, carpool, ride the bus. I love Mother Earth, plant a tree, reduce, reuse, recycle.
And even though bikers are saving the earth ever so more than me, they annoy me. Get out of my lane! You make it impossible to pass your bike, holding up traffic for miles. What ever happen to those good ole days when you bikers biked on sidewalks. Roads are for cars.

You are on the road. Fine. But then you don't follow the rules. Running reds and stop signs, weaving between cars, hopping on and off sidewalks. You need to pick a team, either the road team or the sidewalk team, then stick with it.

Game 4


It's getting interesting again. Dwayne Wade showed everyone what's up on Tuesday and he's back again tonight to serve some up to the Mavericks. Above is my rendition of Mark Cuban looking bad ass in Miami. Mark blogs during the half-time of the games, his humble way of staying in touch with the common man.

Game 3

While some Americans and some foreigners continue their World Cup Soccer fan posing, the rest of us are highly anticipating Game 3 of the NBA Finals. With such a competitive and high intensity series (Mavericks up 2-0), who knows what will go down tonight! Will Dwayne Wade and Shaq lead Miami to a much needed victory? Only time will tell.

Rock, Paper, Wolf


Wolf beats Sponge, Paper, Moon, Air, Bowl, Water, Alien, Dragon, Devil, Lightening, Nuke, and Dynamite. I am sooo excited. I just found out about the Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament being televised tonight. First the spelling bee, now RPS. Life just can't get any better.
Check out what I call, Rock Paper Scissors on Crack. Then you'll understand the awesomeness of the wolf.

Got Milk?

Greg Focker:
I didn't actually grow up... on a farm per se.
The house we grew up in was originally erected...in the early Dutch farm, colonial style. So that, plus we had a lot of pets--

Jack Byrnes:
Which one did you milk then?

Pam Byrnes:
Dad!

Jack Byrnes:
Honey, he said he pumped milk. What have you ever milked?

Greg Focker:
A cat.

Jack Byrnes:
A cat?

Greg Focker:
I milked a cat once. You wanna hear a story? My sister had a cat, and the cat birthed a litter of kittens. And there was this one little runt...this little sweet little... little-engine-that-could runt...who wanted to get up there and couldn't really get access to the-- to the--to the-- to the-- to the teat.

Jack Byrnes:
Teat?

Greg Focker:
I went in and just simply, you know, just-- into a little saucer, then took the saucer and fed it to Geppetto-- that's what I named him.

Jack Byrnes:
I had-- I had no idea you could milk a cat.

Greg Focker:
Oh, yeah, you can milk anything with nipples.

Protected Corneas


I always like to try my hand at portraits. After landscapes, cubism, and then still-life fruit, portraits are my area of proficiency. As I choose my reputable subjects carefully by their personality and virtue, I make sure I capture the detail and honorablity of their essence.







Classy.

Bad Form


Who schedules a meeting at 12 noon? Don't they know that time is designated for lunch? No one will pay attention because all they will think about it food. Lunch is the monumental half-way point of the day, where I can meet up with friends and coworkers and try to pretend I am not at work. Whether we hit up Arby's or Chipotle, we are dwelling in our one hour freedom and break for the day. We come back around 1, check email till 1:30. Since I'm in PST, the stock market will have just closed, and I'll have to check that. Around 2:30 is the short coffee break, so I prepare for that (with my witty stories and jokes). By the time you know it, its 3:00, better start making the to-do list for the day... Days go by pretty quickly, I just need to watch out for those delinquent 12 lunch meeting planners. They ruin everything.
