The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

Image

I woke up this morning wanting to blog.  How odd, as I don’t really have anything to say.  So I thought I’d share another image with you instead and tell you the (very) short story behind it.  It isn’t anything mind blowing so, please, don’t get your hopes up.

This picture is part of a year long series I did in 2011 which can be found here along with much of my work.  It was a reworking of a picture I took when I first bought an SLR camera (a Canon EOS 500N) back in 1997.  In the original the mannequin was holding the pen like a rifle, looking down the “barrel” as if he were about to shoot.  However, the mannequin in this image is a different one and I couldn’t get the arms into the right possition to hold the pen accordingly, so I had him wield it like a sword instead.  Told you it wasn’t mind blowing, though the premise of the image I believe to be true.  Have you ever seen Grosse Point Blank?
