ducks & owls. and a deer.
a blue tit (yup, that’s what they are called in english) & another (badly drawn) wren.
a robin & (one of my all-time favourite birds) a sparrow.
we had a little drawing & fimo session last week.
here’s some giraffes hanging out.
and here’s our wild bunch.
they look peaceful but they’re ready to fight. just look at those tiny penguin fists (or is it the middle finger?).
whatever. if you mess with the penguin, you’ve got a problem with a lion and an eagle on your hand, my friend!
if you start driving over 30 there are exactly 2 kinds of reactions:
a) strongly unimpressed. those people have been driving for decades, never thought about the possibility of a life without cars and really don’t think it’s a big deal at all.
b) vigorously not interested. those people have decided that driving & cars is not for them at all and don’t want to hear about it <fill in legitimate environmental and/or financial reasons and an urban surrounding>.
who am i supposed to share my joy with? well. whatever. it’s done. i’m happy. i can take us anywhere, e.g. on a 4-hr drive home when c’s hungover (just a random example).
downside: don’t draw and drive.
“coat hooks with faces in knee height and a bin. yup. that’ll do for the funny kids’ corner in the waiting room of our hospital.”
just so you know, i love bob mortimer.
his stories on “would i lie to you” are the best things that happened to tv. ever.
(on the show “would i lie to you” there are two teams telling each other outrageous stories. the other team has to guess whether each story is true or a lie.)
there’s a new video with all of the “mortimerian tales”:
my favourites are these:
00:07 – I once set fire to my house with a box of fireworks.
06:50 – The police once ordered me to leave town because I was frightening the locals.
26:27 – As a teenager, I used to terrorise my neighbourhood with a game I invented called “Theft and Shrubbery”.
45:35 – I can break an apple in half with my bare hands.
non-places… places that exist, but you never really look at them.
there are quite a lot of them everywhere (maybe especially in darmstadt). like the bridge at the ostbahnhof…
… or the forever (-ever-ever-ever) ongoing construction sight at the hospital…
… or the crooked house that is (not so much) hidden at rosenhöhe…
blackbirds are always worth a second look though. ❤
I’m sooo looking forward to the next millionaires club – THE festival for comics & graphics in leipzig. it takes place at the same time as the book fair – next weekend! hurray!
here’s my submission for the mini-expo “animals R funny”:
(yes, it’s a cat watching “funny animals”-videos on youtube. in a fish bowl. at a fish family’s home.)
