The Small Cricket's Tall Tale

September: this is the time of year when crickets try to outdo each other telling stories of dubious validity. This little fellow: Napoleon is his name, is the loudest in the barnyard. Why is he singing from the top an old pile of cow dung when he used to sing at La Scala with the great Maria Callas? C'mon Monsieur Napoleon, we are all ears!

the gullible Cow

The Heron, who is nobody's fool!

I've been playing around drawing/doodling this character lately.
Is it a rat, opossum, hedgehog, a lowland streaked tenrec?
And what stories does she have in store for us?
She seems rather hapless and a bit forlorn. A dreamer.

Just like me!

locked out!

Hazel? That's a nice name. Hazel seems to have found a friend!

The Reef

© 2011 Rob Dunlavey
All pictures are rooted in the real world, even imaginary ones like this. On some level they all tease or provoke meaning out our experience of life. So even though this is a predictably melodramatic and trivial scene, we can avail ourselves of the bleak prospect and the tiny essential lives of the birds on the cliff.  That's the concept and because it's a picture and we can behold it, it becomes a tool… if you have the time and the need.
