WITH VALENTINE’S DAY RIGHT ROUND THE CORNER I THOUGHT IT WOULD FUN TO PLAN A ‘DREAM DATE’. WHO IS YOUR SECRET CRUSH??? A CELEBRITY, MUSICIAN … AN OLD BOYFRIEND PERHAPS? WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEND A NICE ROMANTIC DINNER WITH??? (I KNOW MOST OF YOU WILL SAY HUSBAND/BOYFRIEND/PARTNER, BUT PICK SOMEONE ELSE FOR THIS ONE - IT’S MORE FUN/FUNNY THAT WAY!)So up popped this photo...of Wil Wheaton with a hand knit sock. Unfortunately Wil does not knit as stated in this post. I don't know how to knit, but if I did, I would totally make this scarf and these socks.
AND… IF YOU DO PICK SOMEONE FAMOUS, TRY TO LINK/POST A PHOTO TOO ☺
So this prompted a Google search. There was some interesting posts and pictures out there.
This picture is not for the faint of heart or those with coulrophobia (fear of clowns).

Then I came across these...super cool!
From Free Wil #1: This was an idea I had a few months ago, inspired by the very amusing tweets of Wil Wheaton and his imagined conversations with his iTunes software and other (usually) non-speaking entities. But I have no actual drawing abilities, so I wasn’t sure how to make it happen. Then one day I was taking pictures with my digital camera, and it occurred to me I could pull the idea off by using pictures of action figures as the characters. And not just action figures, but LEGO minifigs as well. So, with the purchase of a few pieces of equipment and software, I’m in business. I have no idea if this will continue. But there’s enough material for a few dozen strips, so if I get any encouragement (and can find the time), I’ll do more. I hope you’ll enjoy – Free Wil!
