We are Kings and Queens of the land we built where the monsters of a Valley can no longer hurt us...

Howdy, how are we all today? Well I thought today seen as I haven't posted for a while I would share something random I did on Friday during a Poetry lesson. This was done instead of doing my actual work because I was bored, no offence to my teacher or anything but it's Friday afternoon and the end of a long and crap week so I really wasn't up for philosophical context of poetics or anything like that. Thus came my two little comics "Reasons to Listen to Heather!" Starring Heather who I have sung many a praise for and continue to do so because she is fantastical and simply amazing, and Myself. Now these are rough sketchy drawings, not as neat or tidy or polished as my other works because I drew them in ink and in lesson and coloured with a purple highlighter. But I think its fun to have a none serious art style for short little things like this. So anyway without babbling, here they are:
Reasons to Listen to Heather #1
And the second- Reasons to Listen to Heather#2

Now let me know if you guys want more of these little shorts on the blog cause they don't take a lot of time to sketch out, in fact I rather enjoyed doing these ones because it's literally slapstick comedy on paper. Can't beat it. And if you want to find out more about my cool friend Heather, here is a link to her blog too:

So yeah check it out. Leave me some comments and I'll be speaking soon. Although before the usual ending I would like to leave you with a small bit of advice. When looking at past exam papers and your teacher is reading out the questions, do not think noone can hear you when saying a sarcastic comment/answer to your mates, regardless of how funny it is. Here is the question and my answer:

Q) Why was Malcolm X such an inspirational figure to leaders of the Black Power movement in the late 1960's and early 1970's. My Answer) They liked him because he knew where his towel was!

As you can imagine, my teacher was not amused at me. However my friends were. So i'm a bit torn between whether or not it was a clever comment... Anyway moving onwards. The song for this post is by a lovely band that I've started listening to called The Maine. The song I've chosen is "Inside of You"

So yeah, this brings an end to this post for the day. I'll speak soon, let me know what you think about the comics and if you want to see more of them.

Peace, Love and a happy Monkey to you all.
