Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! It’s been a long, long time since I featured Neck Crick Guy – shall we see what he’s been up to? If you’re curious, here’s what his original stock photo looks like.

I was wondering why they like to tattoo Neck Crick Guy. Then I looked at the original stock photo.
Yes, May, there can be. 🙂

Definitely infinite and what is the scoop with the disappearing tattoo? Real or fake?

That picture of May is pretty danged cute. 🙂
Oh…and I see the dark-haired version of my precious boy on All That Glitters. New pose, too! Hm, I wonder what he looks like with his eyes open.
I wonder if he’s gone to a chiropractor? All that neck criking has to hurt.
Chris, are you creating the book covers just so they’ll bug Mayhem?

LOL, I love the reappearing tattoo! And yeah, photoshopped hair! My favorite!

Poor May looks like she might be getting sick at the thought of all the naughty boys.
The photoshopped hair was bad, but better than most of the ones I’ve seen in the past. I’d like to think that it is getting better, but it is much more likely to be a fluke.

The tattoo caught my attention too, although my neck is twinging in sympathy for that pose!

I guess his ink is steered to different locations using nanites.
A recent post from trek..WMBP – now with more circles
I’m with Jen — my neck is starting to crick now, too, after seeing all that!
A recent post from Val Kovalin..I have gorgeous new cover art
I fear that there really is a never ending supply of misadventures!!

OMG! Gotta love that in the original pic he’s got the Detroit Tigers’ Olde English “D”!
And, is it me, or does the neck crick look more painful in the “close ups”?
Ouch, standing like that on all those books, it’s gotta hurt by now
That is one cute kittie pic 🙂
He looks sad 🙁

I think photoshopped tattoos are catnip to cover designers.
May looks very stressed! Did Chaos try to eat her when breakfast was delayed an hour on Sunday due to the time change?
A recent post from Brenda..WIPs: now with 17% more texture!
They gave him purty long hair on All That Glitters, but left his receding hairline (or maybe that’s a strong widow’s peak), so it looks like his long hair is coming out of the back of the top of his head. Poor NCG 🙁
A recent post from Ava March..Two Down, One to Go!
Poor NCG… Here his is, managing his receding hairline with as much dignity as he can muster, and then they photoshop terrible hair on the poor man… It’s like he’s been given a comb-over! So not hot…
May, you’re looking very possessive of whatever it is you have your paws clasped around – still cute though!
(Chris, I have to know… The backgrounds in all the photo’s are always neat & tidy… How do you do that???)
yes there can be an infinite number of “naughty” boys –
That is a darn lot of tattoo changes for poor NCG!

Love these Monday posts…yeah, I’m a day late but they’re still great!

Thank you 🙂
I’m a little behind and just catching up, but I don’t dare miss an installment of Misadventures!
