I really wanted to work on something tonight, anything, but I got home from work late, had a couple of things that had to be done around the house, had to cook dinner, and had to play with the dogs (I don’t have too, I like sitting around with my dogs), so I ran out of time tonight. Dang.

Don’t I know it
Ever wonder why you do what you do? Ever ask yourself why you work at whatever it is you do only to find that what you do doesn’t actually have any lasting beneficial effect or importance for anyone?
As the castle crumbles around me, I sometimes have my doubts about why I’m here or what I should be doing… Yesterday more of the castle roof crumbled down into the kitchen garden, destroying an area that I had fixed up a bit with Gianni, Insley, and friends… We only used recycled wood and didn’t spend much on materials, but it was a lot of work, and it did have a certain hillbilly charm. It was even chosen as the cover image of a beautiful Italian gardening magazine “Giardinantico” (photo by Max Salani)… and now, only two years later, it’s a total mess - a ruin…
And every day it’s something else - more tiles fall, beams break, ceilings leak, walls crumble… it just makes me wonder if there’s any hope or future for this place.

What’s the Double-Dollar to Woolong conversion rate though?
"Through the fathomless deeps of space swims the star turtle Great A’Tuin, bearing on its back the four giant elephants who carry on their shoulders the mass of the Discworld. A tiny sun and moon spin around them, on a complicated orbit to induce seasons, so probably nowhere else in the multiverse is it sometimes necessary for an elephant to cock a leg to allow the sun to go past"- Terry Pratchett, Wyrd Sisters.This is the Art of Paul Kidby, who has illustrated not only the covers to a great many discworld books, but also illustrated calendars, art books and the fully illustrated stories like The last hero.Terry Pratchetts Discworld is easily my favourite fantasy world.
Paul Kidby rocks.
The Discworld books are good. Go read them.
This was a lot funnier in my head. Also, I think I messed the angle up on the bottom panel, like their bodies aren’t using the same angle that there heads are.
