nuddy men

Holy Crap. So while quickly scoping out my reader I spotted this amazing MELABO giveaway from one of my favorites, Design for Mankind. I know I should be working, I have so much on my plate this week. Anyways, I just haaad to enter to win this delicious deerman.

I've spotted this little guy on etsy before but today it just clicked who deerman reminds me of:

the DON BAILEY carpet ads!
Everyone in Miami has passed by this amazingly vintage ad on i95 at some point. I snicker every single time I pass by one of these. I think he's way better than the Coppertone baby.
Check out this interesting story on Mr. Bailey from the Miami Herald.
"An enormous naked man watches over South Florida. He is handsome, muscular, pleased with himself.
.."
Ok back to work.

Oh girl, I already have the deer with man head (the reverse of the treasure shown here) AND the totem kitty, Malebo is my all-time Etsy Fave.

Of course, I'd trade both of my little friends for a life-sized version of that banner ad, it would look fab in my dining room

I LOVE driving past the Don Bailey sign! It's such a Miami staple...

Yikes! They put that guy on the side of a truck? How many children are scarred for life?
