Cookiepocalypse: Phase One

So, every Tuesday Laura Long makes cookies and sells them at Now That's Class. They're vegan, and hydrogenated oil free, and only $1 each. And they're big. They're so big you could say they're apocalyptic. SO, for the next four weeks we'll be presenting the Four Phases of The Cookiepocalypse. Phase One, the White, is a Macadamia Nut cookie of CONQUEST.

As for the design of the "horseman" riding the White Cookie of Conquest, according to wikipedia's Four Horseman page, in Revelation 6:1 - 6:2 it says "...When the Lamb had opened the first of the seven seals, I heard the first of the four beasts say with a thundering voice, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a white horse; and he that sat on him had a bow: and there was given unto him a crown, and he departed as conqueror and to conquest." So with those main components in hand, I got to drawin'! I knew I wanted my "Horseman" to actually be a "Horsewoman", and I really loved the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs when I was a pup, so that's where I gripped the idea for the look of the crown from. The bow and everything else I just made up, but I did look at a bunch of both surfing and archery photos for a while. Making High Heel Converse All Stars may have been both the stupidest and most brilliant thing I've ever done.

I would never wear high heeled converse and hopefully no one I know would. It makes a statement in a piece of art. I think that in art it is beautiful, but in everyday not so much.

Well, apparently legendary designer MANOLO BLAHNIK thought they were a good idea; it's been brought to my attention that THEY ALREADY EXIST! And for only $299.00!
