TARBOT: there’s so much to work with here!
thinking outside the box
frogs to kiss into princes
the background looks like canvas at the back of a theatre stage
CROE: it does!
the stars and moon also
like they were hung infront of the backdrop
it’s an interesting mood that the lighting and colors capture, too
not sad, but not happy either
CROE: it does seem like the color scheme could have been inspired by a piece of granite
the gray tones with a touch of gold
the frog on top of the rock is in a yoga pose
i initially said that jokingly
but now i realize the name of the pose is sun salutation
TARBOT: yoga FTW
CROE: it’s probably not intentional
i like that the moon is a rock
rather than a circle of light
TARBOT: what do you make of the man? his head can only ever look up …
unless he falls on one side of the box, but then he wouldn’t be able to walk
and unless he used his hands
CROE: his arms certainly seem more useful than his feet
doesn’t seem like he’d get very far
if only the rock were a sphere. then he could roll
but i guess that would make a mess of the frogs
I wonder what he’s searching for.
CROE: there’s a second title
the unattainable search for perfection
CROE: perhaps he was cursed, like a prince turned into a frog
TARBOT: only a prince turned into a … few limbs in a square rock?
CROE: at first i thought he was trying to catch stars in his net
but maybe he’s trying to catch frogs
(i did this as a child)
TARBOT: (you had interesting hobbies back then)
why exactly are frogs falling from the sky?
CROE: some sort of plague?
TARBOT: frog plague?
never heard of that
TARBOT: I learn something new every day
though I have a sneaking suspicion that I knew that already
and chose to forget it
CROE: the one in the lower right corner looks like he has a bump on his head
what’s on the ground behind cubeman?
TARBOT: looks like just rocks
