Blackberry Sonnet

I love this man, now and for forever. His pupils were split berries, black on
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
and wondered
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.

greetings comrades!

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!


is it a bird? is it a plane? well, it's TOTALLY NOT A ROCKETEER RIP OFF!

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...

aloha comrades!

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
-your heros
-dental trauma
-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!!!


when i grow up...

jeeze, way to push the imagination boat out there, alex.

something for the food stuffs theme. didn't you use to love it when your folks tried to broaden your pallet?

I SWEAR TO GOD I'M GOING TO DO SOMETHING FOR THE NEW THEME... just as soon as the to-do list stops being quite so epic.
