Is it the model? Is it the donut? Is it food and models? Is it what you thought it was?

You decide.

Nope, Sorry, Jim, the satire is a little too subtle to be effective.

Too many people are only going to see a coke snorting girl.

Just my opinion, and whaddo I know...

at first glance i thought she was snorting coke lol
i agree that the satire is a little understated.... maybe adding a box of donuts or making the donuts a little more obvious would make the image work a little better

I love the idea, have to agree that the donut gets a bit lost. Could you possibly have put a baggie with like 2 more donuts just outside her front knee. Not sure if that makes it too blatant though.

Just say NO to powdered sugar!
:-)

Interesting image. I do agree that the donut is hardly noticable at first. I had to go back and look again.
When I first say it, I said to myself..."and how is this a parody?" Looked just like a girl snorting coke.....

but perhaps it's best just the way it is......

I like the concept, but I personally think that the rolled bill confuses the satire, which is indeed quite subtle.

I would maybe use a razor blade instead, cutting the donut. It would draw attention to the fact that it is a donut (rather than a certain controlled substance) on the mirror. I liked the suggestion of adding a ziplock with a couple more donuts to the image, though not TOO prominently.

I think all of you guys are missing the point. I think he wants us to think she is snorting coke, but on further investigation, we find it is a donut. I think that's the real satire here. Coke makes you skinny. Donuts don't.

Good job Jim. That's a really neat image!

I dunno...my feelings are mixed. When I first looked, I saw only the girl snorting the line - it wasn't until I read your message that I looked again to recognize the donut. Then I felt, "He should make it more obvious!", quickly followed by, "I should look more carefully and SEE the image!" Now, I think I'm more annoyed at myself for not observing what was in front of me. I suspect I'm not the only one.

So - good stuff. Thanks for sharing.

I saw the donut right away, although at first I thought it was a sliced mushroom. So my original take involved coke and magic mushrooms. Then, once I cleaned my glasses and monitor and correctly identified the donut, I thought she would snort the coke, then eat the donut -- the coke serving as a diet aid, which is why she is still slim after being a Krispy Kreme addict.

In any case, I like the concept.

I like it, but I do agree that maybe a box of donuts would have made it better...most people have too short of an attention span to look at it hard enough to really get it. A box of donuts would be perfect to make people look twice.

New website huh? Can't wait!
