GET YOUR EAR FEAR SHIELDS TODAY!

Inspired by the Spike Milligan poem 'Bump'. I think it's a limerick. I could be wrong though. Colours for this one were inspired by old Beano annuals at my grandparent's house.


Things that go bump in the night
should not really give one a fright.
It's the hole in each ear
which lets in the fear
That, and the absence of light.
                         Spike Milligan

Onos

Based around Spike Milligan's poem 'Onos'. I decided I needed a few landscape piece in my Negotiated project. They all still stick to international paper size though.





We have cracked the midnight glass
And loosed the racketing, star-crazed night into the room
The blind harp sings in the late fire light,
Your hand is decked with white promises.
What wine is this?
There are squirrels chasing in my glass.
Good god! I'm Pissed!
                                                      Spike Milligan

On the Ning Nang Nong

After one failed attempt at tackling Spike Milligan's most famous poem 'On the Ning Nang Nong', I decided to leave it until some inspiration came to me. This was the eventual result. The date happens to coincide with my degree show, so it you're not there, I will assume that this is where you are. This thing will be printed at around A3, so if you want to see those details, follow this link >>>>DETAILS<<<<
