    To Elliott Back

    I was wondering weather you could allow me to use your work in my school photography project as initial ideas and in my display book. Also any information you have about your project like inspiration that you can send me would be greatly appreciated

    I didn’t realize when I was coming to this site that there would be explicit (gummy bear) ***. Perhaps you should warn people. Some of us surf at work, you know!

    very imaginative

  7. Gabrielle says:

    LOL!!! SOOO HILARIOUS!! AGAIN, AGAIN!!!

  8. Maz says:

    what is a limited CC licence… does this licence allow for the use of these images in other medias (specifically ones that will be broadcast, like a different website, a blog, a book etc?)

    This is AWESOME!!!!

  10. AS says:

    Sloth, greed is also known as avarice, and is not the same as gluttony. Wrath is referred to as anger in this representation. :)

  11. sloth says:

    I like it a whole lot but aren’t greed and gluttony the same thing? Where is wrath?

  12. earth says:

    That was cute. I love gummy sin’s. lol

  13. […] I’m writing this post on a Mac. I have no idea what kind of Mac. It’s got a picture of an apple on the front. I think they all do. The reason I’m writing it on a Mac is because my son takes a Saturday art class at CCAD, where I also teach a History of Advertising course one night a week. Since I’m on faculty, I figured out that I can log in on the Macs that the students use in the computer lab right next to where Dan’s class is. It’s a 2.5 hour class. So rather than drive the half-hour downtown, find something useless to do for 1.5 hours, and then turn around and come back… I can log onto a Mac and find something useless to do online. Like this.

  16. […] Hello foxy she-lady! It has been a while since our last talk and play. Please sit and we can talk about all the geek **** foreplay we always used to speak of. A little droopy? This will certainly pimp your ride. After our cigarettes we can get hitched in a church made for us while we gaze into our eyes living in our pretentious world, watching predictable movies of the heart. […]

  19. Andy Havens says:

    It would have been funnier if it had been real bears.

  20. Diva says:

    Cute! This made my day. :)

  21. anonymous says:

    I thought it was kind of cute, in the gummy bear style…I mean, some down-to-earth and what some people call “realistic” people might not like it, but I enjoyed it, because it was humorous.

    The way the gummy bears were positioned very much represented the captions, and I think my favorite was probably pride and envy. They were so adorable (though envy might’ve looked evil to some people). :-)

    elliottback! ur site made it on 9.yahoo.com!

    Too funny….

  25. […] Varför man tar kort på dessa och skapar en blog-post förundrar mig; men 7 Deadly Gummy Sins är ändå snygga som satan. [via BB] […]

    Sloth needs to be a little less squished looking, I assume you didn’t intend for him to be in pain. : |
    Very cute apart from that, I love envy. : )

  27. staci says:

    very cute!

  28. blanker says:

    ‘released under license’?

    these days on the internet people are somehow genius if they arrainge food on their plate, or look into a sky and see horses in clouds.

    next time i draw ‘clean me’ in the dust on my car bumper i’ll photograph it and put it in my flicker stream to enlighten the art-hungry masses.

    woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo……….

  29. shrewness says:

    i like it a lot! i think pride is my favorite. although lust is a very close second!

  30. […] Let loose the dog of war!  Just having fun,  so should you, with these sites! Tiny Pictures.  Gelatinous biblical lessons.  Stella sketches.  Veto the future.  China acting suspect.  Web 2.o business models.  If you can’t make’em buy’em.  Help yer drawing.  I hope we can get them comfortable again.  -drool-drool-drool- Now Jude can hold his ***** when he pees.  UK gets Robot civil sevants.  Japan looks into a Weather’s future.  Cybernetic Telepathy.  Cruisin eletric.  Young world leaders.  Super stamps.  Op ED on spys.  Games meet movies.

  31. […] This is what I call art. Well at least it’s very creative. […]

    Gummi Bears depicting the 7 Deadly Sins…

  33. David says:

    This is really impressive work. I wonder if an animation of these 7 pics might work well.

  34. Ashley B. says:

    I love your interpretation of the 7 deadly sins. It’s so creative and beautifully photographed. Thanks for the smile at the beginning of my day.

  35. Kelly/Envy says:

    Hey I love the pics they are so adorable!

  36. Elliott Back says:

    I hope you are joking. Any artful representation of the 7 deadly sins is certainly safe for work, no matter how explicit it is. I think the current post on your blog is an indication you jest ;)
