The Bell Jar

Some images from my last project, a graphic novel (ish) of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. I really wanted to play around with traditions and conventions, so I did. There are a lot of naked ladies, I'm not sure why.

Monkey Business

So I've been looking at the way that humans view the animal world and animal behaviour. I tried to make a comment on this with the scientific view on the left (The raucous, far-carrying calls of the howler monkey help to ensure the family parties are evenly spaced in the rain forest) and the anthropomorphic/humourous view on the right (Ned didn't do mornings). The image changes when viewed with the different texts. But all in all, it's just a monkey.

"A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin"
H. L. Mencken

I've also been reading my book of quotes.

The Scheme Of Things

I have formulated a plan to post up a sort-of 'word-a-day', alphabet extravaganza on my blog, showcasing some of the most underrated and underestimated words in the English language. This service will commence shorty.
In the meantime, a bunny rabbit.

Birds of a Feather

Here are some interesting facts about birds
-The most number of yolks found in a single chicken's egg is nine.
-Pigeons can reach up to 65mph. 75mph if chips have been sighted
-Ducks' feet have no nerves or blood vessels. This means ducks never feel the cold, even if they swim in icy cold water. This also means that you can tread on a duck's feet when going to the toilet in the middle of the cinema and it will not grumble.
-A chicken once had its head cut off and survived for over eighteen months. His name was Mike and he has a festival held every year in his honour. You can also find him on Facebook.
-A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.

First Great Western to Portsmouth Harbour

An interesting exchange between two people.

Refreshments Man: Got your nails painted now, Jo?
Jo: Yeah, well, the train's a bit bumpy.. They're not quite the right colour. Do you like them?
Refreshments Man: Oh, very nice. Where are you travelling to love?
Jo: Rattling obscures answer
Refreshments Man: Oh, yes, did you win much?
Jo: Indecipherable Mumbling
Refreshments Man: How much?
Jo: Well, enough. Not a life changing amount.
Refreshments Man: Enough but not a life changing amount. So when's that going to be aired, then?
Jo: 10th February
Refreshments Man: 10th February. And were you the Hallowe'en episode then?
Jo: No, I was Miss Valentine, it was the Valentine's Day episode. They made me up, I don't usually look like this. I had big false eyelashes and everything. I look scary. If you see me in real life, I don't really look like this.
Refreshments Man: So it's Jo. The 10th February. Deal or No Deal. Cos, of course, that's filmed in Bristol isn't it?
Jo: Yes.
Refreshments Man: 10th February. Jo. Deal or No Deal.
Brief Tea, Coffee, Refreshments Interlude.
Refreshments Man: Tea, Coffee, Refreshments. Tea.. Goodbye, Jo.
Jo: What was your name, darling?
Refreshments Man: My name's Ken, and I'm on the train all the time, course, you won't see me, I guess you don't get the train very often.
Jo: No.
