Rocking the World Cup

The past few weeks have all been about rocks, minerals, and the World Cup. With a side of drawing class.

It started with an old book on how to know minerals.

IMG_3816I didn’t read it, so I don’t know how to know them. But I do know that they are pretty. I’ve developed a special fondness for smithsonite.

I did not develop a fondness for Cristiano Ronaldo, Arjen Robben, or this guy’s hair.

My studio assistant was not as enthralled with rocks and minerals as I was.

The World Cup psychic animal pool was disappointing this year. The psychic horse that lives in a house? A false prophet.

Perhaps the single greatest line to come out of the all the related World Cup coverage can be attributed to a spokesman for the Brazilian city of Curitiba, on the topic of their psychic capybaras.  “Capybara prediction is a science. You can trust it.”

Turns out capybaras aren’t psychic.

I started working on a new kind of conglomerate during Argentina vs Iran.

The Iranian team looks like this:

“Hey Luis Don’t Bite Me” is the most tender folk song to come out the World Cup.

This is my manicure for the USA-Belgium match, seen amongst mineral debris.

People at the office were very busy working that day. A co-worker declared that we couldn’t lose to a team whose country’s mascot is a peeing boy. But, well.

Also that day I skipped my drawing class. A drawing class seemed like a good idea at the time. It is hot here in the summer, I needed novelty indoor entertainment. I quickly realized though that drawing wasn’t going to take. On the last day of class, we had to draw a replica plastic gourd. I dutifully drew the gourd until I couldn’t stand it anymore and began drawing strange lumps and offshoots on it, turning it into a vegetable not found in nature. When my teacher came by to check on me, I had to admit to her that I was not very interested in drawing reality. I don’t think she was pleased with me. It’s a good thing this class was not for a grade.

I did like smooshing around vine charcoal with my fingers though. Gummy erasers are also entertaining.

A couple of World Cup matches later, I had myself a giant conglomerate.

I was also following Colombia. Their coach received 400,000 write-in votes for president in the recent election. Then they lost to Brazil. When Germany then went on to beat Brazil 7-1 (what!), Colombia got very busy on the internet. The German embassy in Bogota’s Facebook page got 9,000 likes that day.

I wasn’t satisfied with just one conglomerate.

Thus ends the rocks, minerals, and World Cup era. Really, enough with the rocks already.
