Two Feet of Snowâ€“The Best Snowmen of Open Salon
Here's a round-up of great snowmen from the past week. This genius piece was produced by artist G Augustine Lynas.
With the snowstorms in the Mid-Atlantic I've been tied up doing very important press junkets...so I'm a little behind. Speaking of which...
These photos of a snowman with a large asset are from renown illustrator Larry Roibal . Check out his cool website to see his Sarah Palin palm portrait!
Didn't see that coming. Thanks, Larry!
From writer and OSer Lonnie Lazar this fire breathing snowman, I kid you not. As reported by The Baltimore Sun, Nick and Anna Berte of Bel Air, Maryland built a giant snowman and rigged it with a flamethrower inside!
This pair of poignant snowman pics comes from legendary OSer designanator.
Very cool pictures.
Other OSers have posted marvelous snowmen, too. One of my favorites is from 2 Political Junkie's...
And from Harry's Ghost in Texas is this cool snow sculpture...
He also included great snow pictures!
I'd like to also suggest checking out OSer Lisa Kern BEAUTIFUL snow photos. And there's a wonderful snowman poem from OSer Rita Bourland here. As if that wasn't enough Rita wrote a second snowman poem along with this great snowman. I hope this helps get more traffic to this true snowman lover!
But the most important OS snowman post is from Alan Nothnagle reporting on the Berlin snowman global warming demonstration.
Snowmen have actually been in the news quite a bit lately. Austria just broke the World Record for building the most snowmen at one time, 1800 (the former record was 1200 by a Japanese town). Here's the only story on the event. Click here if you can read Dutch.
Meanwhile back to my country who seems to be the most at odds with dealing with snow...
This is how you know you've had enough of winter. Thanks to Michael Angelo.
This family shoot comes from a friend. It was his kid's first snowman! That's gotta be exciting.
Photos, and probably snowman, by Augie Alexander.
Finally this is me for the upcoming feature in The Daily News (it's at The Cloisters). Photo by Bob Sabo at The News. If I didn't know myself I'd say the guy in the photo is a complete tool. Having me pose with a snowman as if it's my son was a pretty lame idea. There's just no way of pulling off this snowman expert gig and being cool.
For more snowmen, go the Today's Snowman (and check out older posts as this is also the latest post there). Here's a couple more from my readers there...
