Queen Cactus takes the Bus

Above: As it appears in situ, on the pockmarked studio wall. Queen Cactus takes the Bus, while Jamila is ready to defend with her sexy* weapons of hook and chilli. Not sure yet whether Queen will be taking the bus or something else.

*I have never used this word in my blog before. If I pepper my entries with these sorts of words, will my blog get alot more hits?

Toucan Saw Leaf

Above: Maybe this is where the "anthropomorphic" tag will start to loosen. I want to see how loose it can get, before it's completely lost. I suppose it depends on the context: this little 'figure' might read differently when not seen alongside his friends below. Or maybe not?

The Mitre 10 Man Satellite

Above: The Mitre 10 Man has made another comeback. His smiling head is now attached to a satellite (1960's Sputnik era style) and he is juggling a pretty assortment of single cell organisms.

Shark Pasta Unicycle

Above: after having completed the Rat for the Illustrators Association exhibition I am back onto the series that I keep referring to as 'animal vegetable mineral' in my head. That's still my overriding criterion for the three parts that make up each one (though I don't always stick to it). Another is 'head thorax abdomen' -- how insects are built -- though oddly I haven't included any insect parts yet. Time to find some. A hairy moth's body perhaps?
