Lord of the Flies Again

More Lord of the Flies. I’m sorry, I promise everything will be back to normal soon.

This one was for English class, so it’s a bit darker. And more grotesque. (I had to look at the inside of a pig’s mouth, so you do, too, alright?) And that’s Simon in there, to be clear. This was based on that scene with the Lord. (Have you figured out what my favorite part of the book was yet?)

Lord of the Flies

So I was talking to Malcolm on Wednesday about Lord of the Flies and the relationship between being a sociopath and being mentally deranged (which is that, you know, if you’re a sociopath, you’re mentally deranged, but if you’re mentally deranged, you could be a sociopath, or you could be the sort who has tea parties with imaginary people) and I was trying to use Simon as proof of hope for humanity, what with all the crazies on the island.

Malcolm: He talked to the Lord of the Flies.

Me: Yeah, I know, but that was apparently metaphorical.

Malcolm: No, it was a pig’s head. Simon’s just crazy.

Me: …Yeah, okay. Maybe Simon’s the tea-parties-with-imaginary-people sort.

Malcolm: Maybe he had a tea party with the Lord of the Flies.

Mr. Golding, I am so sorry.

Radio Trees v2

The old version of this has been bugging me for a really long time, especially because it’s what I named the blog for and I feel like it should look more finished, so I finally redid it. It kind of happened the way Hannah did: it started out like, “hey, this is a thing I could try,” and then suddenly it had been five hours and I was a quarter of the way through and had no interest in doing anything else until the drawing was done.

So. Yeah. Here. I feel like I should save this for some special occasion (anniversary, 1000th view, etc.), but I’m awful at withholding awesome stuff.

This is a radio tree. No one really knows how they work. The trees are supposed to be non-sentient since they have never spoken to anyone or moved. There is a dial in the middle of each radio. It does absolutely nothing.

This is George. Come Josephine makes him nervous. So do cornfields, bubblegum, Pacman, and things that move too fast.

Oh, sidebar: guess who’s getting a DeviantArt account? I was talking to my friend, Sallie, and she suggested it, and I told her she was a genius and then a couple minutes later my phone died and hung up on her and I couldn’t call her back. So… Sorry, Sallie. Thank you for being a genius. Anyway, you can see the profile here, although the only big difference will be that you can buy prints over there, and you can see more of my work over here. If you’ve got an account, though, you should definitely say hi.

Alice In Slugderland/Wonslugland/Wonderslug/It Is Alice In Wonderland With Slugs, Okay?

I appear to have drawn Alice as a slug.

I really have nothing more to say about this one.

Radio Trees

This is a radio tree. No one really knows how they work. The trees are supposed to be non-sentient since they have never spoken to anyone or moved. There is a dial in the middle of each radio. It does absolutely nothing.

This is George. Come Josephine makes him nervous. So do cornfields, bubblegum, Pacman, and things that move too fast.

Origin story: So my friend Sequoia and I have developed this game, in which I draw George, she draws something in pen, and then I make it into an actual drawing. In this case, Sequoia claims she was attempting to draw a radio all along, despite the fact that everyone else says it was clearly an owl. She also drew the horizon and the sun, and then I came up with this awesome idea for radio trees that I got really excited about. I started drawing, and when I asked people what they thought about it, every single one mistook it for a taco tree.

They’re dead now.

Oh, and it’s really only fair that you know I ripped the whole “using Come Josephine as creepy background music” thing off from Ms. Katy Towell‘s 31 Letters from the Previous Inhabitants, as seen here. It’s an awesome, innovative, unnerving piece of work that you should definitely check out.
