Gotta go fast.
Into the whale truck! The whale is a mink whale, which the internet tells me is the main large whale to live in the North Sea, but the second smallest baleen whale. Obviously, the whale road is the sea.
Re-re-redraw! A vandal’s solution to any problem appears to be to set it on fire!
For Illustration Friday.
Well, the obvious thing to do for this week’s illustration Friday… Athena, as a burrowing owl.
293 BC: Rome suffers from the Plague. It’s, like, so bad you guys. They ask the Oracle at Delphi what they should do, oracle advises them to get snake introduce the Cult of Asclepius in Rome. (A small diversion here: Asclepius is the son of Apollo and a human woman called Koronis. His mother dies / […]Read Post ›
For Illustration Friday: Dragon.
And now for the thrilling conclusion. Where I went to a session on all sorts of sexy topics (and it was excellent), and then had a wander around Rome in search of a bookshop, and once again failed to see anything pre-400. I’m utterly useless at travelling on my own. (I mean. The travelling part I’m […]Read Post ›
17th and 18th of March. Featuring biscuits, snakes, Cicero, and general confusion.
I went to Rome for a conference, and saw absolutely nothing touristy, but instead got lost a lot… I did have a really good time, except I’m now laid low with a cold. The suffering, I tell you!
Scottish fold as a 92nd Highlander.
Wow, notes? Again, no guarantees on the truthfulness of the following – read a real book! Don’t rely on my poor lies, I’m by no means an expert. (1) The council of Chalcedon took place in 451, convened by the Emperor Marcian, with Papal approval, unlike that council at Ephesos in 449, in an attempt […]Read Post ›
A birthday cat for my friend Leonie. I hope you like it, too.
Continuing the trend of animals in strange hats…
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL AND POWERFUL GUY.
Ah yeah! (Mug?)
I would like you to know that I celebrated St David’s day by making a pretty fantastic leek soup. What I would also like you to know is that my society6 shop is having a 15% off / free international shipping sale on carry all pouches at the moment, and maybe you’d like to check […]Read Post ›
Continuing “animals in period clothing”, here’s a giraffe in an 1800s style bonnet.
A belated birthday present for Lottie.
Some sort of troublemaker.
British Horse artillery gunner would like to show you just what he can do.
And that’s it for Valentine’s Day 2016. I hope you’re having a nice day, and find the chocolate bargain of your dreams tomorrow. Check out the tag for the fine collection of incredibly romantic cards I’m slowly amassing: https://foxesandtea.wordpress.com/tag/valentines-day Also if you want to show me some love this Valentine’s Day, tell your friends about […]Read Post ›
For reals, though, my love for avocado knows no bounds.
I mean, I guess, maybe? A true toad needs no allies. It is strong and fends for itself.
I literally wrote the book on love (and make-up, holidays, fishing and woe. I write a lot.) Referenced are, in order: Ars amatoria, Medicamina faciei femineae, Fasti, Halieutica, and Tristia.
What are you, milk?
You can also purchase this as a print on society6.
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?)
