She's Got the Woodchuck and Everything!

Today's Strip

Once again Kevin means this woodchuck. (and before anyone says anything I will remind you that Kevin isn't what you would call a Rhodes Scholar)

Remind you of anyone?

I was in a Charlie Daniels state of mind and started trawling for different versions of "Devil Came Down to Georgia" until I came across the Muppets' version which was coincidentally the first version of it I had ever seen back in the day. But when I watched it again this time it struck me... Does the Devil remind you of anyone?

Talking to Nancy

Today's Strip

Word of advice. If you notice bad casting at a Halloween party it's best to keep it to yourself.

Friday Museum Sketches



Okay, today two different angles from the same piece, a fragment of a roman archetectual relief from the first quarter of the second century CE, from the Louvre's Roman collection (it was on tour at the Seattle Art museum the one time I was at the Louvre I only focussed on the paintings) The scene shows the preparation of a sacrifice. The you can see the real version here

And for everyone keeping track, this is the second time Kevin has missed the cute girl with the strangely familiar Devonshire accent.

Friday Museum Sketches

Okay, everybody. Here we are again for the second installment of Friday Museum Sketches. Today we turn to the Boston Museum of Fine Art which I try to get to whenever I'm visiting my parents in New England. Today's sketch is of a statue of Shiva from Tamilnadu, Southern India done during the Chola period, late 10th century.

Friday Museum Sketches

One of my favorite exercises for keeping the artistic muscles in good working order is to go to the Seattle Art Museum (or whatever art museum is handy) and do what I like to refer to as my "push ups" that is to say draw everything until your time runs in (or burn out sets in, whatever comes first) Anyway it's a good way to spend a free afternoon. (Though there is a risk of memorizing the exhibits) but most importantly every now and then I actually get some good pieces worth sharing. So I figured I'd start the tradition of showing a few of them every Friday.

To start things out here are a few Masks from the SAM's very good collection of Northwest Native American art. The main mask in the front is Galukw'amhl translation (Mask of the Crooked Beak)
by Willie Seaweed the other two I believe are versions of Raven though I'm afraid this is one of the sketches I did before I made a habit of including notes about the piece.

Ten Tons of Sugarcane

Sorry, I did it again. Wrote a strip which requires knowledge of the archives for full appreciation. For everybody new, the full context is here.

Let's Start Again

Today is a reboot of this blog. All of the previous entries were moved from the previous version of this blog with some very liberal retconning.. The previous version was part of Rhapsodies’ web page Unfortunately while the joomla software that makes up the site called it a blog it was pretty much only in name only and never played nice with any of the search engines so I decided it was better to start a blogspot account to tide me over until the day I overhaul the page completely

Mabon

One of the really cool things about the last storyline was the feedback I got from it. First thing I should point out is that for a boring Scots/Wasp from the East side of Providence, I have an extremely disproportionate number of Goth and Pagan friends. One of these friends is a guy named Jeff who is a ranking member of one the larger Wiccan Churches in town and does a very good and informative podcast on Wicca.

Anyway he provided me all the background information (and dirt on the "cliche" Wiccans who make normal Wiccans role their eyes) Anyway I gave him a cameo in the storyline. He wrote about it in his livejournal

The next thing I know I'm getting hits and referrals from half the pagan community in Seattle.
