At a Theater Near You!

When I was teen I was a total James Bond freak. Ahhh....to have the James Bond life. What could be better than to travel to exotic locations around the world and be surrounded by beautiful women...hmmm....I guess that is kinda what I do now.

Well now it turns out I am actually a Bond villain...Malletfinger.
My recent injury is called mallet finger and may need surgery. Funny thing is that I didn't even feel it happen. I was working in the studio taking things apart, then I looked down and go "holy deformed digits, Batman!" No pain...weird. For the time being I got a little splint till they figure out what to do with it. Ironically I was getting ready to head to Cincinnati for a photo shoot, of which is mostly hand shots. So far it hasn't affected my typing or art making but what a pain that they might have to operate.
Beware the hook.

sorry about the finger and hope all goes well with surgery. REALLY like your work and was wondering if you have gallery representation.

Sorry to hear about your finger...might be a fun trick at parties though...can you impersonate Danny Torrance's (Nicholson's kid in the movie) voice from 'The Shining'? Remember..he named his finger "Tony".....

(sorry...that was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw your finger.. hope you can get better without the hospital.)

Oooh manky! Love the 'mallet finger" graphic. You should get paid danger money. That is weird that you didn't feel it happen. Hope that it straightens itself out without having to have surgery.

I guess that nose picking is a tad difficult now huh? ;D (sorry.. couldn't help it!)

Hmmm looks like that finger may conein rather handy actually- lol!!!!

Judi said...

wow. And does it "stick" in that position with a very weird locked feeling, but you can straighten it out with the other hand? If so, this may be an epidemic....

I was going to feel sorry for you Michael but you're making such light of it with the James Bond Malletfinger poster .... my "sorriness" has all gone...lol. A friend of mine kept her bedpan after a hospital visit and "altered" it beautifully .... with nails all sticking up where it'd be painful if you sat down. Looked cool!

ewwwwww.....gross!!!

I think your idea of the Dremel attachments is the best thing I've heard in years........for you at least.

Remember Edward Scissorhands? YOU would have a different attachment on each finger.

Didn't your mom ever tell you, If you don't stop doing that with that finger, it's gonna stay that way forever!

What exactly have you been doing with that finger Michael? lol
leave it to you to become one of the freakiest James Bond villains ever. hope treatment goes well.
