Is there at all anywhere in this lavender sky?

is-it-vanity

I found a falling-apart copy of Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales, illustrated by W.Heath Robinson at a local charity shop this afternoon. Already the little pills have started running around inside its pages...

If yo've drawn on the actual book pages (like the Chapman Bros) I'll never speak to you again

I like I like. Illustrated versions of H.C. Anderson books are why I got into drawing in the first place.

That and isolation.

that switchsky pill is so fucking mysterious!

I know I know what HCA this is from, but it escapes me...walks away slowly.

That Switchsky pill is an oasis of reason and groundedness in a desert of anhedonia. Everyone needs a Switchsky pill in their lives.

Nads, yes I am doing a Chapman. The book may be worth god-knows-what, but I reckon it's being put to better use as a gutted fodder for Prozacville than sitting on a shelf gathering dust and termites.

A new lease of life and all that shite.
