Writers often need another pursuit to keep them fulfilled, from Ernest Hemingway taking trips into the wild to test his manhood, to Ken Kesey taking trips that were part of a "test", and definitely wild. Pursuing making crazy lamps and stuff, the dude behind Creative Pal
From an Indiana writer with a side passion for building & invention, CP throws '50s-'70s pop culture images -- from B-movie monster kitsch to Willy Wonka -- onto an array of lamps, appropriate, as most of that stuff's typically enjoyed by people who're lit up themselves. Sporting cut-out figures atop their bases and correspondingly decked shades, the stock ranges from Rod Serling standing under assorted Twilight Zone scenes, to Johnny Cash halo'd by a shade of head shots, to a tassled mannequin torso 'neath topless dancers, who're totally flashing you their high beams. He also pimps back-lit glass stands that throw shadows onto nearby walls, including Norman Rockwell scenes, Batman and his famed signal, and a circle of crystal skulls from the Mayan legend, but not the Mya legend, 'cause since "Lady Marmalade" she's mostly been a myth
And if you want to step things up another notch, you can even have him build in a button-triggered, 20-second-long audio clip, but not an audio trip, 'cause damn Ken, it's all about the visuals!
