And love to no one…

And love to no one...

And love to no one…

There I was sorting through the attic last bank holiday when I found an old box containing old photos and other such ephemera belonging to my long lost second uncle twice removed. Needless to say we knew little about him until we found this box and could not work out how on earth it ended up in the attic. In fact we’re not even sure he is even our second uncle twice removed…

The box contained some photos of the man in question taken whilst travelling the world (but I won’t bore you with them now as they are every bit as dull as your own holiday snaps), some letters which I might one day reveal (but they are a little saucy for your average reader as he was an avid whoremonger!). What I can show you though was a painting that accompanied his last missive and after reading it it seems clear that this is the reason he is ‘long lost’. To cut a long story short he felt that no one loved him and because of that he was going to give love to one. How sad ūüôĀ If only I’d have known I could of given him one of my famous ‘this’ll make everything better’ hugs (as seen on TV). Maybe next time…

Seeing something strange

Seeing something strange

Seeing something strange

I seriously can’t wait for Spring time to actually make an appearance. I’ve spent too long on my own at home making up pictures as a result. I definitely need to get out more…

I came up with this as some kind of accompaniment to a friend’s story about a dream he’d had which involved an extended hallucinogenic experience. He still looked crazier than a thimble full of baby snakes while he was telling me.

Never underestimate rabbits

Never underestimate rabbits

Never underestimate rabbits

I think the clue is in the title on this one. We all know that rabbits are hardly trustworthy at the best of times right? Well i can safely say that you can never underestimate one that tests make up on itself! They are definitely the worst kind and not to be trusted under any conditions. You can just see it in their beady (but beautifully made up) little eyes.

Consider this more of a warning sign than anything else. My work here is done…

International Foreign Policy

International Foreign Policy

International Foreign Policy

There I was in Nanjing doing some work in my capacity as international archaeologist adventurer when i happened across an important archaeological artifact that sheds some light on Victorian international relations. It’s a small fragment of the original Treaty of Nanking that was presented to the Chinese by the British after the treaty was ratified by Queen Victoria and Doaguang Emperor in 1842. This was, of course, back when the British Empire was really something to behold and British foreign policy was perhaps a trifle more aggressive.
As befits my part-time international adventuring job (sadly it pays better than art) I hastened the document out of the country at the first opportunity from under the noses of the curious authorities (therein lies another tale for another time). Nonetheless it is an interesting curio with a certain historical value that should fetch a handsome sum from some museum or other. I believe Queen Victoria had thought it amusing to get this decorative addition made up so they would get the message that little bit more clearly and respect our swagger. How simply delightful!

They Sleep We Live

I think the title and the face says it all!! ‘They sleep we live’ is a mantra I’ve repeated to myself from time to time. Despite his pretend sad face you can see his smiling eyes emitting their intensive glare. There’s even a small bluebird of happiness in shot. What more could you want?

Beat Bunny

Now we all heard Thumper making some crazy beats in Bambi but like everyone else the rabbit fraternity have had to move with the times. Check out this urbane fella all suit, bow-tie and trilby hat. He’s in a big band making some of the more popular beat combinations. Sadly though he’s a junkie too and you can tell by the case of pink eye he has. All i’m saying is if you’re going to be a groupie you’d better be careful…

Now i know what it says in the picture isn’t always true but for a man its easier to agree than to get yourself in a whole world of trouble. Some lessons you just have to learn the hard way…
