Did y’all catch Parks and Recreation this week?! Totally lost it everytime Ron Swanson (played by Nick Offerman) got super stoked on the scavenger hunt, it was adorable (or as adorable as a big mustachioed bear can be), which they used as a device for the closing scene:
I had to do Ron Swanson nails. Had to. Kyle Hilton had created this great graphic for Ron cut out dolls so I used that as my reference to create the nails (in acrylic) featuring “The Swanson” turkey leg, desk shotgun, Ron and part of his breakfast poster. Where I really screwed up (because the self-flagellator in me is compelled to call it out) is the touch-up round: some of my safety orange color, which seemed like a no-brainer for Swanson, needed some follow up after the first topcoat so I used one of the Migi pens instead of the acrylic paint to try to cover it, but I wound up making this weird orange colored mishmesh in those areas, so whoopsie.
“It’s never too early to learn that the government is a greedy piglet that suckles on a taxpayer’s teat until they have sore, chapped nipples. I’m gonna need a different metaphor to give this nine year old.” – Ron Swanson
