The creeping reality of Rob Z Tobor and other uneventful events of no consequence
In the last couple of days I have been busy, but not busy doing exciting things just busy doing the things that folk generally do to keep busy. You know the sort of things.
Attacking a large beast that has eaten the local wild Aardvark, with a pointy stick deep in the dark of the woods.
Hidden a huge pile of rare Italian renaissance manuscripts in order to avoid major historical conflicts with the Pope, as they reveal an early religious war between the church and Aliens, involving treacle toffee. AH hang on maybe I was not meant to say that…..
Talked the Lemmings of Petrograd out of an out and out attack on Mr Jones the Alien hunter, who has yet again disturbed them as he ran through their home naked pursued by the police and one of Freddie’s ferrets
Vanished off to watch at least half a million starlings as they settle into a nearby village and poo on everything.
Washed our car after it got covered in the poo of a huge number of starlings.
Chopped off one side of an apple tree in order to stop it falling over
Played ancient African drum rhythms to the Micro Gods of nice weather
Fixed a fountain
Pointed at many things.
So there you have it (dead boring), it has hardly been the sort of days that are going to improve my chances of the very nice Steven Spielberg showing any interest in the film rights and as I am often told by his lawyer . . . .O NO its you again please go away. The little scally wags that they are (I know they don’t mean it).
Anyway in other news my design for the MK3 Mechanical Spy Bird has been approved by the Canadian Intelligence Agency (the other and slightly less well known CIA) and they are so keen they have asked if they could print the image and hang it in the main office where they sit and ponder things. They say it will help them concentrate and stop them slipping over the edge into the world of ludicrous mad ideas that are entirely crack pot; the fine line apparently between madness and genius.
It is nice to know however, that the fine line between reality and cyberspace has got just a little greyer than it was as my work filters into the real world in far away places, and if Mr ESB prints any Rob based clothing in the heart of Texas (sorry that’s the heights of Texas) then before you know it I will be standing next to you in a queue complaining about the weather and smiling clutching a rather well made pointy stick.
Ooooo finally I am creating a slightly rushed A to Z of Zombie based drawings of erratic quality and was wondering (assuming I get them finished in time if anyone else would like to use them, It is useful to have a picture for each letter and I am not going to sue folk for copywriter infringement, as they are all rubbish.
