    Wip September Entry: Leonardo's Lawnscaping

    My entry is a parody of a before-and-after ad in a magazine, in this case "Rogue Magazine", the fantasy version of "Vogue". The ad is for Leonardo's Lawnscaping. The ad is aiming for a slightly campy style from the 1950's and 1960's, juxtaposed with current cultural references.

    Leonardo is a gnome; the owner of the before-and-after home is a female elf and the former tenants were orcs. The moral of this piece, if anything, is "don't rent to orcs".

    The before picture is close to complete, but I feel I need to mess it up more. I'd welcome any suggestions for other features to add that would trash up the place.

    Modern orcs drive VW bugs...interesting. I'd like to see the interior layout and how they messed up the joint.

    Interior view would really rock.

    btw, don't forget the obligatory toilet out on the front lawn being used as a planter

    A car, lol...
    We don't get too many parodies, so this is going to be sweet

    What I see is really well done so far.

    Neat idea, and looking good so far.

    I would love to do the interior, but it wouldn't make sense as this is an ad for lawn care services.

    I've added Mrs. Leafblower and her testimonial, and it looks like the satellites of Google Oerth may have caught the eviction in progress at the rental property.

    Good stuff, Imm. Any day that you can laugh is a good day.
