This piece has a fun backstory. I shot reference pix for this concept way back in 2013. I was having a beer with a couple of my more "senior" neighbors Bud and Ray on Ray's front porch. Those two had been friends for decades and joked with each other frequently. One of my boys happened to have one of those practical joke hand buzzers. I borrowed it and shot some pictures of Bud and Ray playing with it. Unfortunately Bud (hand on the left) passed away a few years back. Ray however is still up for having a beer or two when we get together.
