Attempts at Art Nouveau


Song Illustration Series: Universe

Once I took the universe to dinner When she failed to yield the earth's demands 'Oh,' she said 'you mean that little ant farm? I'm alright, dear, I've got other plans' And we're sad because we think we don't belong here We're guilty 'cause we think we should be stars Floating in a navy soup, ...

What Inktober can teach you

If you have never heard of it before, I will tell you now: Inktober is by far the coolest living challenge on the internet. Created in 2009, the idea is fairly simply (as most good things are): to make one ink drawing a day during the entire month of October. There's an official prompt, with ...

The seclusion strokes

With five months and counting of crutches, cast, orthopaedic shoes, surgery and more crutches, I try to make my days as productive as I can. When it doesn't work it's only because there is so much I want to do that I end up not doing a thing at all. Luckily, that isn't always the ...

‘Lady of the Sea’ – Peafowl

Lord Peafowl hadn’t really meant to kill his father. Granted, he had waited impatiently for his father to die, even secretly prayed for it on occasion during mass, but he didn’t intend for the old man to die by his hands. If only he hadn’t said those things to him, shouting that he was useless, ...

The San∂man

Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot. Dream, in Sandman #19: "A Midsummer Night's Dream", Neil Gaiman
