ABOUT THE ART

Illustration in pen & ink, ink wash, watercolour and oil pastel, from my short story of the same name, that may possibly be a work of metafiction:

"It was at the dawning of the Third Age of Capricorn- which thankfully lacked the lasciviousness but not the follicular emanations of the later Aquarian epoch- when all of the necessary conjunctions and alignments and orbital phases and cosmic and celestial and stellar bits ’n’ bobs and whatnots were in their proper and correct places and galactic locales- as has been foretold in both The Ancient Hidden Book of Skerrig Enoch and The Small But Informative Pamphlet Regarding the Inquisitorial Enlightenment of Heretics- that the diminutive starling of The Great Empty Cave did crispily indent a rude and ancient runic symbol upon the buffy foilish floors therein, and it did do so by the cunning utilization of a claw that was its own and by the use of a sharpened elder twig from the Misted Weedy Valley of Below and with the broken atomized femur of a spavins-stricken cranny vole..."

Rather charming really. The piece seems destined for a children's book or illustration of a young person's story media. Terrific, thanks
