Green Eggs & A Dash Of Ham

Little Known Masterpieces From The Blogosphere!

OK, kiddies. Here's the latest in my Photoshop Phoolishness obsession!

Not too long ago, I got word that my friend Dash Riprock had acquired a new backyard toy. Dash is world-renowned for his ability to take assorted dead animals and apply heat & smoke and transform them into incredibly delicious meals. What the man can do to a pig has to be tasted to be believed!

His latest cooking implement is a Kamado ceramic cooker, otherwise known as a Big Green Egg.

Upon hearing he'd acquired a Green Egg, as a lifetime fan of Dr. Seuss, naturally I wondered how it would do with ham.

Lo, an idea was born!

Dash has only made a single appearance so far in my assorted Photoshopperies, his debut being the Blownstar Nativity Scene. Dash was one of the first regular visitors to this blog, and the first blogger I met face-to-face.

Dash's wife was kind enough to participate in the project by sending me a hi-res pic of Dash and his Big Green Egg, and I started looking for some famous works of art that would be suitable. The green egg proved to be a PITA to try and fit into pics, but Dash & a canned ham worked out just fine! The final picture in the series is an amalgamation of all the works 'shopped into the original photo of Dash & the Big Green Egg.

So, without further ado, here's Green Eggs & A Dash Of Ham!
