Not so traumatic right? WRONG! Has anyone ever had to have braces put in?
How about having your braces put in while the orthodontist is eating his lunch and dropping crumbs onto you and into your open mouth, without any gloves or facemask?

i do believe it is time for a new theme. this time round, we will be tackling hector's choice of DENTAL TRAUMA. please feel free to go back and generate more delicious content for the old topics though (NEW YORK, FOOD STUFFS, WHEN I GROW UP, I WANT TO BE______, FANTASTIC MACHINES, SONGS).
if you have any suggestions for new topics, just shout me a hollar yo!

I have bit
my tongue for too long
on this one.
I know that conscience
and the cold bite hard,
and rhyme is a twisting
tongue, is a sound leaf
two lines of teeth,
but this was torture.
was a lovebite at the night's
a brush of teeth along her black
back, a perfect kiss
in the cold air. So when
your lips brushed mine
I could not help but wonder
between the rush
of teenage lust and tooth
and tongue, salivasap,
managed to trap
itself between my metal brace
and gum, biting
itself into submission
bleeding, suffering, then numb
as kisses became kickboxing
to escape, save face,
to free your tongue
like a bird of song
from its newfound cage:
my bruising, glinting brace.

okay, so this isn't exactly an illustration for that song but the idea was heavily ripped off- uh, i mean inspired by- james jean's shit hot artwork for the album http://www.jjeanius.net/images/Illustration/MCRGatefoldPub.jpg
god, that man is a freaking hero.
i feel shame.
oh wow. this is just a little bit emo-tastic. listening to that song got this image of some dude trapped under a layer of skin stuck in my head but i lack the chops to pull it off even halfway decently. waaaah.

It’s all going down in East Berlin.She swept her long hair over her shoulder and swayed the table decisively. He looked at her and took a little sip of his cool beer. He'll never be able to fit me in, she thought, between that faded old sofa and the cranky fridge with half-drunk bottles of Weisswein and the hung-up washing and steaming cups of dark tea on the sideboard of the shop. Never, if not tonight.
She thought he'd liked her that day on the U-Bahn. She couldn’t work out what was a memory and what she’d invented. Was he itching to take her bottom lip between his teeth, as she was, and gently bite?
He paid for her drink and winced. “Sorry, my contacts, hang on a sec.” He was so polite, it was exhausting. It was a little cold. She wanted him to warm her up, to put his electrifying fingers on her shoulders and squeeze.
“Got a light?”
“Sure.” He flicked a flame between their lips, briefly. Crumpled lung chrysalis. Was it just breath, or was there something else forming between them, as sweet and flickering as smoke?Lail Arad / Everyone is moving to Berlin

white irises. Her hair was spilt libation on his forehead. She tipped
her liquid lips to his, and drank to the world he'd turned his back on.
She turned and said a silent thanks to the world that had stripped her
of him, that had held his neck crooked across the cliff
what the sea tasted like
------------from that great height
-------------------------what bones sound like
--------------------------------------when the whole world sucks them stiff.
She turned, kiss still on mouth, and cursed the world that never really let them be.
As silence rose, she caught sight of his snagged arms, poured earth
over his forehead and turned and fled, weeping
--------------------------------------------------------to the silent sea.

there's a new theme a foot and it is SONGS. pick a tune you like and illustrate the shit out of it!
this one's been a long time coming and i hope it gets the old grey matter ticking! if not, please go ahead and revisit our older topics (NEW YORK, FOOD STUFFS, WHEN I GROW UP, I WANT TO BE______, FANTASTIC MACHINES). also, when you upload stuff for this one, could you link via youtube or whatever the song you've taken on? i figure this could be a real neat way us to introduce each other to some choice tunes.
if you've got any ideas for themes or know anyone who wants in on the fun, shout me a hollar, yo!
because jet packs are totally pimp, right? urgh, need to slap some colours down on this but i've been super duper busy. will rectify this soon!
also, going to put the shout out on a new topic sometime soon...

geeze, dose anyone else feel like they've got a wee bit more time on their hands? anyhoo, figured it would probably be a good idea to put a fresh theme out there as a reminder that this thing's still kicking around. this time, it's FANTASTIC MACHINES, curtosy of fred.
if you have any ideas for a topic for us to tackle, shout us a hollar, yo. here's what's built up in the suggestion box so far:
- 3 panel comic
-illustrate a song
-people we know
-take a book title/ song title/ film title/ lyrics from a song out of content and illustrate it
also, feel free to throw up some doodles based on our ever growing list of old themes (NEW YORK, FOOD STUFFS, WHEN I GROW UP, I WANT TO BE______). some people have made some noise about us maybe putting a zine together at some point, and it would be super fly if we had enough content to make up issues based on a single topic.
hope you're all having a good holiday so far and SEE YOU LATER FOR SOME OXFORD RELATED HI-JINXS!!!

ok, so i know we're up to our eyeballs in all this guff right now, but what the hell, right? the theme for now is;
I WANT TO BE A __________ WHEN I GROW UP.
fill that blank with all your creative might! also, feel free to throw up submissions for the previous topics (new york, food stuffs) if there's something you're itching to draw for them.
