You are my catshine, my only sunshine, oh please don’t take your cat face away. (Apparently in my conception of Valentine’s Day, people just go about handing pieces of colourful paper to each other, and then somehow, kissing. Who knows. Kissing is gross.)
For Illustration Friday: mystery
Small fuzzy friend. We’re definitely pals.
Documenting every hour spent awake on February 1st.
A legitimate question to ask.
” I would breed a new pig to show how much I love you. “ I mean, that shows commitment, right?
I’m sure the joke has been made before, but not by me. So there. Senatus Purrrrresque Romanus, clearly where it’s at.
Who doesn’t like their Caesars badly drawn and with pastel flowers? (Why yes, you can get this on society6!)
“My plume is kept shiny and smooth by sheer zeal. (Also conditioner). Inspired by this image of the Duke of Brunswick and his ridiculously sized plume.
Why did the cat go to the mouseum? To gain delicious knowledge. Maybe don’t quit your day jobs, guys.
Someone has to be in charge. (Hieroglyphs / translation courtesy of Lottie: What, you expected it to contain some sort of meaningful secret?)
The Welsh word for ladybug is “buwch goch gota”, which literally translates to “little red cow”. So there we are.
It’s been… a long year, but not an unhappy one. Top ten posts! The Tale of the Danish Protest Pig – probably the most popular post I’ve ever made. As well at it should be, as pigs are roughly THE MOST ADORABLE. https://foxesandtea.wordpress.com/2015/05/28/the-tale-of-the-danish-protest-pig/ Penis Jokes? In MY blog? – I know, said the Romans, […]Read Post ›
From digital sketch to acrylic on paper. (Apologies for the poor image quality, my computer crashed, and it was all I could do to take a picture of the screen with my phone – I know, right? – before it went black.) Commissioned by Liz as a Christmas present for her mum. I’ve tried to […]Read Post ›
Luna and her ridiculous Gryffindor lion hat. I’m not entirely happy with it, but it’s silly enough to cheer me up a lot, so there you go.
I like to draw animals in period uniforms, because I’m easily amused, all right? Danish artillery, 1789 (source: http://www.hillmose-finn.dk/militaerhistorie/den-danske-armes-uniformer-1892/ )
Which is all you can ask for in any holiday season, really. (Spare me a thought as I face trains and the Tube on Christmas Eve.)
Vaguely Imperial Guard Foot Artillery parade uniform, woo. It’s a bear. You can’t complain about authenticity if it’s a bear. Learn more about the bonnet à poil here.
A birthday present for my lovely mummy.
The ninetiest owl of all nineties owls.
May all your celebrations be scale-y and excellent. Print.
Katie asked for it, and hence here’s a hedgehog. Cool guys, on the whole.
That dragon looks far too pleased with itself, if you ask me. (on society6)
I love dogs so damn much, and if one wants to be my friend, my day is made. (society6)
Just another mouse in uniform.
There is, in fact, a better way. On December 5th 1854, Ernst Litfaß, a German publisher and printer, was given permission by the Berlin chief of police to put up his advertising columns. The first advertising columns were put up in that city in 1855. They served as a source of news, advertisements as well […]Read Post ›
Here’s your informative Gävle goat graphic for this year, given the very first Gävle goat was erected forty-nine years ago, on the first of December 1966. (As always, apologies if my Swedish is faulty.) Details entirely taken from the wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%A4vle_goat
Lizard witch with tarot card, and offering of coffee. (WHAT IS PERSPECTIVE??? I tried, all right?) For Sydney, who continues to be a light in the darkness of this world, and who, also, has a birthday today, and if that’s not excellent, then I don’t know what is. With lots of love, Liz
Cause sometimes you need dorky eagles (holding cigars, apparently). And by sometimes, I mean all days of the week. (Also on society6).
And that, as they say, is a wrap! Click on the film strip to revisit this years drawing, from the last to the first. Hope you’re having a fantastic Halloween!
Frederick II (1194-1250) went about impressing his subjects with his menagerie of different animals, including, at times, camels, leopards and elephants. When he wasn’t, you know, ruling the Holy Roman Empire, fighting in Crusades, or with the Pope… See also: http://andreacefalo.com/2013/07/30/emperor-frederick-ii-and-his-scientific-pursuits/ http://faculty.fordham.edu/refling/Frederick%E2%80%99s%20Menagerie.pdf https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cremona_elephant
They might even show you some sympathy if you can bribe them with lard. Maybe.
Tight trousers for some.
As Maegan made me remember that the world’s spookiest holiday is fast approaching, here’s some ghosts! You can never be too prepared for Halloween, after all.
Because who doesn’t love a good conspiracy theory?
This cat wants none.
Just don’t do it! Be nice to your cat!
Presumably a friend of heresy duck?
This is a classy website, full of classy jokes. (Classics jokes? Never mind.) Penises (particularly winged) where a popular good luck symbol in the ancient world. In the tintinabulum (a kind of wind charm), they’re doubly combined with the power of bells to ward off evil spirits.
