... and it's dirty.  In a "clean me" sort of way, though -- so SFW. More from the cloud book, which (as timscience correctly says) encourages a "certain kind" of comic. Mostly because it's not really a sketch pad, much as I wish it was. How do they decide which pads get lines and which don't? Does anyone want pads with lines in? Dirty, dirty, dirty.


A day's worth of groaning, sleeping and coughing my lungs out seems to have at least beaten the cold into abeyance. I've also realised that I need a pencil case. Anyone seen any good ones around the place? I tried Paperchase, but they're all too trendy and the wrong shape. I found my folder, and with it the last lingering fear that it might somehow have been lost/stolen has faded. This means I can get back to a bunch of projects that got deranged way-back-when, which is a very pleasant thought.

Also, I walked past a couple of grannies sharing a crafty fag on the street corner. They even had tartan shopping trollies! Shocking.

From Eddie Campbell's blog (eddie_campbell ) today: "In the old days i'd have made a one-page 'Alec' out of this , but today we squander our narratives in a blog." He knows how it works. I've just bought (and read) The Fate of the Artist which I'd been awaiting with equal parts anticipation (for Mr E.C. is naturally one of my comics heroes) and trepidation (lest he had been broken by working with Alan Moore on From Hell). I'm a bit here-and-there about it, to be honest, and will confine myself to making a non-committal noise. Hrggrawlf.

Feeling a bit Lady Macbeth, are we?

"we squander our narratives in a blog"
Oh yes. Stopping blogging has been proving very useful for songwriting, as I thought it might.

Glad the cold is at bay.

Nice subtle palette, there...
I want a Badtz Maru pencil case myself. Why are such basic needs always so difficult to obtain?

What shape do you like? I'm making a pencil case at the moment, and I could probably make a suitable other one after that.

I dunno... fairy liquid might help.... (a lot of the people I know use bleach, but I wouldn't recommend that in any professional capacity)... Phil greenaway again, but as you probably can tell my 20 years in psychiatry isn't of any use at present....I would just like to say I like the artwork... crayons, pencils or otherwise...
