and a happy solstice to one and all

Still stuck at home being ill but that didn't stop me celebrating the solstice. It's probably the least ecologically friendly pagan celebration ever, but once I had the idea of building a chocolate stone henge full of roller-skating dinosaurs it really had to be tested for feasability. Keep going back for the full story (12 photos).

Oh, and there's an old weekly strip newly up, too

flash for snow queen

It's called Snow Queen, and it's from January.

I got quite excited at the thought of a bourbon stonehenge, but they're too shiny, aren't they? Hummous isn't right with anything else... ;-)

I do think bourbons would work
I even looked at them in the shop, but it would have been a smaller, less impressive henge. But you could perhaps partially bury them in hummous for stability ... (would have helped for the p-p-p-pick up a penguin henge).

Re: fabulous!
I think the things I will do to avoid having to hoover the floor KNOW NO BOUNDS.

Re: fabulous!
yes, but most of us just don't hoover the floor, rather than not hoovering the floor and inventing whole new worlds. ;-)

The pagan boozing, sacrificing dinosaurs are true genius.

Oooh, I like that one. Shades of the snow queen. I shall think on't. I hope you don't mind if I steal some of the imagery?

Well, I'm fairly sure I stole it myself, so sure

Not only are you brilliant, but you're making my stomach rumble at the same time.

Your skateboarding dinos remind me of the book Trick a Tracker by Miachael Foreman, wherein the animals of the world invent skateboarding to outwit the cavemen hunting them.

I'm just relieved the triceratops didn't get blood sacrificed.

oh, he just looked best on the slab ...
But the argy bargy between the Spinosaurus and the Tyrannosaur about who looked the most sinister and should therefore be the high priest ... yeeesh.

T-Rex: Are you the most famous and fearsome carnivore ever to walk the earth? I think not!
Spiny: Ah, come on! Your accurate posture means you keep falling over! And, frankly, aren't you a bit weedy for a tyrannosaur?
All the rest: Weedy, weedy, weedy!

I think you might well have made my boring office Friday considerably better. You genius!

this is some of the most focussed stuff I've seen from you

although, come to mention it, the strip with AR as a black, white & red cutout was very direct too (what's black'n'white'n'read? - a newspaper ...or is it a nun with cracked kness?)

pared-down lyric, limited palette, uncluttered line - don't get me wrong: I don't think any LACK of these aspects would be a drawback in your work. The half-expected episode about sentient fruitgums in translucent gel feels like it could happen at any moment

I love that it starts out being about white and ends being about black
