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.

It is what it says it is.

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.

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.
