A Polynesian and An Eskimo Walk Into a Bar...

Ok, so I haven't been totally awash. Sure, I've been lazy, but last week I found a couple of hours to add to the mural I did this spring.When I was researching polynesian girl images on google, I found very few clothed females. Since this was for a children's dental office, I thought I should censor the inappropriateness.And here's the other side of the wall. You may remember it from here. And here are some oldies/goodies for your drooling pleasure.In this office there are large flat screen TVs in the walls that play a continuation of whatever's on in the waiting room, and will feature cordless headphones. (Also cool, from an adult standpoint, is that this office is ALL Green...completely paperless, including the x-rays.)

I remember a dentist that had big ole box TVs behind plexi in the ceiling with those old school headphones. And the prizes, of course, made it all bearable.

What was your dentist like as a kid? I know I'm a *super weirdo*, but I loved getting those squishy molds made...they always thought I was nuts for liking it. I still do.

As much as I hated going to the dentist, and although it was always gross, I love getting my teeth cleaned. That squeaky, slick feeling after a good clean was the best.


Also, weirdly, I LOVE the feeling of the super heavy duty lead x-ray vest they put over you. I like having heavy things on top of me. Like 19 blankets. I don't know why!

I don't remember what the dentist was like for me as a kid, but I remember having a crush on my first dentist in the US (before Brian of course). He had piercing blue eyes, and was Italian. Hahahaha, I made sure to get dental checkups regularly.

Love the two additions to the mural. What cuties!

I know that my dentist office wasn't nearly as cool as the one my kids go to... flat screens playing cartoons, headphones... all very kid geared.

Love the mural - you are so talented!

i've always liked my dentist, but always thought they could use cuter offices. this one looks top notch!

my father in law is now my dentist, and he's wonderful... but could use a re-vamp and maybe a mural or two on his wall! beautiful.
