Indifference

I responded to a logo enquirey with this little multi-limbed lady. To my surprise not only has it gone unapproved but worse, it has been entirely ignored. That's the full 100% ignored. Why do I bother?
Ahh well back to the drawing gourd

Hardly a castle Paul

Misty morning, clouds in the sky
Without warning, the wizard walks by
Casting his shadow, weaving his spell
Funny clothes, tinkling bell

Perfect with chicken

Here is one inspired by the greatest drawer of cartoon hands 'Barth' (is that the name???) at http://yearinmerde.blogspot.co.uk/

Other than that I am upset lately by the phrases 'grab a bite' and  'fix you a plate'. Is it peculiar to america or does everyone use this phrase now?

Some times I make a good fist of the caricaturing.... some times not.... here is perhaps a John K... on the other hand, I have four fingers and a thumb

Quando quando quando

So when did 'the wow factor' begin? When was it decided to apply the phrase to everything from cup cakes to tudor home renovation?
So when did 'on trend' begin it's creeping progress into every day talk?
So when will I be on a winning pub quiz team again?

and another thing... why is 'road kill' deemed dirty or at least distasteful? Is this another example of our twisted view of the world without. Try 'mechanised high stress kill' , 'electrocuted kill', 'bolt through the head kill', 'slowly drained of blood kill'... do they sound more appetising?
    I only ask because the other day I read about a chinese restaurant that was done for using a road killed deer as food. The report kind of suggested that the deer (which was still bleeding) was some how tainted because of the way it's end was met. Say to a fellow meat eater that you eat road kill and watch the crinkly brow and up turned conk. Explain the horrifically stressful and cruel method by which chickens make it to their fridge and watch the floods of indifference wash away any interest they may have politely conjured.

It's strange isn't it?

So long, farewell, auf weidersehen, toodle pip

The end has been reached for the storyboarding on this little fella. I hope that he finds a receptive audience with the wee ones and also those who marvel at qualities such as art direction and render settings.

It's been great I tell you, really enjoyable. Happy days

Fatography

I always liked the cover of Marvin Gayes album 'What's going on' I don't know why but immediately it was something. After some (none) deliberation I put it down to the film stock of the time, not to belittle the photographer's skill (absolutely ignoring the photographer's skill). Things seemed more vivid back then, more iconic.... well whatever it is I will continue to seek it's essence (will completely forget this in about three minutes)

Vigorous bottom feeder

An out break of trouser shortage has crept into the olympic effort unfortunately and we are asking YOU the general pubic to send enough pennies to cover the cost of the trenches (being prepared as we speak) that will serve as a temporary measure until a more permanent method of knee hiding can be arranged

Prometheus

Look more ancient signs of a big person beyond the stars
Lets go to the planet and land at the side of the big person's settlement.
Quick, off the ship and let's take a look this very minute.
Hang on here is a big person's head, we should study this
Here everyone roughly man handle this big head... How's about we
jam a probe into it... oops, it blew apart.
"This is rubbish I'm getting drunk, anyone can make people, for some reason
I'm immediately disappointed in everything"
Some dna will change me some how that ... ahhh well dead now
Pregnant with an alien lifeform... quick abortion via caesarian
All done, what's in this door? It's the old lad, why? Who cares?
The big lads hate us and they're going to kill us now
Quick blow up their space ship
Sure, us lads will suicide that thing after zero contemplation of the
explanation that wasn't offered.
Talking head.... comical.... crap.... walk out of the cinema....
booooooooo! bag of arse!!!
