Naturalist's Notes on N2O
Several stanzas from "Naturalist's Notes on a Planet with a
                   High Nitrous Oxide Atmosphere."

Frookies greeble late at night,
And glabverate the Breem.
Yet when Zerks gurble,
They take fright,
And groop!  So it would seem.
And underneath the Bonxa shrubs,
The delraps lurk and mumble.
For when the greebling Frookie grubs,
They're far too zorched to grumble.
The Bindlewurst ginks through the murk
And makes the tem-trees spooky.
But even Sebfleps do not lurk
Around the greebling Frookie.
Yet in the sea the Sim-sops dwell,
And Gunglefrids beneath,
And never once does Frookie smell
Pollute the roaring reef.
On mountainsides, Kiyonbers mince
With tiny steps, and cleavers.
And should a Frookie gnurp or wince,
They slap their tails, like beavers.
And once I saw the Mondlemynd,
A sight as rare as rubies!
No Frookie could compare with such!
And but a few Urdnoobies!
The ten teeth of the Glinkercrig
Are pointed, like t

Literature
Pronunciamento
Color and line
To control them is mine.
With some frustration
Imagination
Lures and compels...
I have intense spells.
Image and shape
I can't escape
Dreams I must heed.
Driven by need,
I must depict
What I can't predict.
 
Tricks played with light
Bore, or delight,
Always first--me.
Can what I see
Please or amuse
Or just confuse?
 
My art is mine,
Clumsy, or fine.
Hackneyed, or new,
Here for your view.
Say what you see...
It has pleased me.

Literature
Vain Little Charmer
Always lock your jewelry box.
It prevents those starts and shocks
That come when some sweet little drake
Figures what to wear, and take.
Ripped from your plundered jewelry box
Are all the hasps, and all the locks
That gave way in protesting heed
To a small dragon's need, and greed.
Now she tinkers, looks and seems
A dragon empress, crowned with gleams.
She smiles, whispers haughtily
'No other dragon shines like me.'
She poses, preens, rubs diamonds clearer.
Dragon diva, in the mirror.
Purrs, head on her greedy claws
And dreams of gemstones lacking flaws.
Next to your empty jewelry box
Not far, as a princess walks
The fairest of the dragon girls
Is sleeping sprawled on all your pearls.
Her bedecked coiled shape beguiles,
Your own reflection frowns, then smiles,
Her joy is worth more than your rocks.
You get a new, steel jewelry box.

Literature
Artist, Looking Backwards
Hidden treasures
Age-old pleasures.
Things that last
Scooped from my past.
Paltry, yet so vast...
Fleeting glances,
Old romances.
Long-gone beauty
Now, my booty…
Some still unsurpassed.
Drew this, did I?
Really can’t deny
I had skill.
I’m at it, still.
With my brushes grasped.
Another year gone.
Yet I work on.
Monsters, Photos
Still, I do those.
Seems my part is cast.
Paints might splatter--
Make it matter.
Draw it, share it.
I still care, it
Has gone by so fast…
Grim persistence
My existence
Leaves its traces
Art, skill graces
Life that’s held tight-clasped.

Happy Birthday,  Goat!  by TheAcciuga Happy Birthday, Goat! :icontheacciuga:TheAcciuga 6 7
Literature
The Vigil
Upon the hill, on guard, alone
The griffin crouches on a stone.
He keeps his vigil, nights and days
And not a thing escapes his gaze.
I climb on up to see his glories,
Bring him treats, and tell him stories.
He is polite, accepts my praise,
But keeps his watch, on guard, he stays.
At night you look up and can see
His glowing eyes that ceaselessly
Go back and forth across our town
In search of things that call him down.
No thief dares skulk among our homes
For endlessly the griffin roams
And checks our doors and barns and locks
Then goes back to his couch of rocks.
We feast, or revel, he looks on
And guards until all guests are gone.
We eat and dance in peace and laughter
And he stands guard, stands by, looks after.
No robbers threaten us, for he
Patrols our fields endlessly.
He finds lost children, calms their weeping
And leads them home, and guards them sleeping.
Because of him, we fear no foe.
He’s with us when we come, or go.
He watches us, keeps all secure.
Patient, fearless,

Old Artist
Sod all this old age and gloom,
I am in my drawing room.
It's a nursery, no tomb.
Art flows from my drawing room.
Things I've seen, or songs I've heard
Drawn here in some pretty Bird.
There! I've caught her, more or less.
In a state of fun undress.
Lots I've drawn, and will draw after.
Echoes, signs of quiet laughter.
With my pen I prance and caper.
Trap my laughter on the paper.
I go on--there's more to do.
Ideas that I must pursue.
Here's old work on which I've sat.
Did I draw this? Fancy, that!
I can make the world turn brighter,
Thousand-word-a-story writer.
There is that within my heart
That impels me on--to art.
Hours, days, I'm still beguiling,
Not just my figures are smiling.
Let the clouds collect and loom--
I'll be in my drawing room.

I have no more idea what's going on here than anyone else, but a couple of debafflers regarding British slang expressions might be in order: I think 'You can't talk' is essentially British, meaning, 'you have no right to say such things', and 'trolleys' is a term I only ever heard in the late nineties, and means 'underpants', although I admit I have not searched into the meaning of this. I just thought it sounded funny, so I used it here. Jodrell's surname is, of course, Bank, and his brother is Nat Bank. A famous British bank is the National Westminster, or, as it calls itself to be all chummy, 'Nat West'.  Enough of that. We have Kosima in a black bikini and thigh boots for no other reason, as far as I can fathom, than I thought it was about time.

As we've already found, the Countess prefers it when her victims are undressed, and more vulnerable. Fate has intervened to spare Marla's modesty, in the unlikely form of Knullius (the rotter!), who is saving his eyes for his beloved Jylda...although he still doesn't realise that, while he's been hibernating for the last thirty years, and not gaining a day, she's been busy ageing....from someone ten years younger than him, she'll now be twenty years older. Maybe he should have enjoyed a spell of Marla in her scanties while he had the chance. (Desist, Goat, that is blatantly sexist!)

I've had this, and the next couple, completed for the last week or so, but I'd slowed down, because I'm working on other things; however, this series has turned into a priority, because Book One is out (some of you have it!) and on the last page, I brazenly announce that book two will be ready in early 2019. 'Early' could, I suppose, mean any time before the end of June, but I'm aiming for February.  Anyway, here's how the Countess tackles a big robot...and resists letting him have a droll nickname.

Two more guest appearances: one being a guy called Mike from Michigan, with whom I became acquainted in 1998 through a website critiquing (OK, lauding) the music of Frank Zappa (he and his girlfriend came over to stay with us a few days in 2000, and we got on great!) and the character I named Katya Skatchkan (ha!) is based on someone who visited the office and really liked the strip, so I gave her a part.

A quick digital cartoon of conductor/composer/concert pianist/educator, Leonard Bernstein on the occasion of his centenary. This is another one of my 'Facebook Fumbnails', but I thought it might be fun to put them in the deviant gallery. Bernstein, of course, wrote the music for West Side Story, On the Town and Candide, as well as some excellent symphonic and choral works.

It's VP Day, everyone! Venna's Planet is now on sale! Rush straight to Amazon (.com or .co.uk) and order yours now! (Oh - er, this is sounding like an advert...I mean it more as a recommendation...) Anyway, I'm thrilled and delighted, and I can't wait to see a copy myself (I'll be ordering a few probably).
This is a big fat deal for me...I'm hoping it's going to be biggish, or, at least, be successful enough to justify a follow-up (which, as some of you will know, is already being compiled, in the hope of an early 2019 release)...but, apart from the ego-trippy thing (I've had my stuff in books before, but this is the first one I've written and illustrated cover-to-cover), I really hope people find it enjoyable.
I know some people will say it's puerile and sexist, and be terribly sniffy about it, but I'm fed up with all this pride in desexualization, and I want my heroines to be hot (even though they remain pure in thought, heart and body).
So - if you're in the USA, the basic price is $9.99 - dunno what the postage is....if you're in the UK, it's 7.99 (my PC keeps making a hashtag instead of a pound sign at the moment, but that's pounds, anyway). 

Assuming the print quality is the same as the small test sample I saw a few months back, you can see every line, and it's wayyyy better than the reduced files I've been posting on here.  And look out for the plot changes, too...there's a lot of stuff in the book that's quite different from the digital version I posted on here - plus, there are extra sequences that nobody has seen yet!

Oh - you may see 'out of stock' next to the item on Amazon - but order anyway - I imagine my publishers want to keep their costs down by not pressing the GO button until they get orders.  Let's make them break into a sweat by everyone ordering at once!

Apart from the color cover, the artwork (as most of you know) is black and white throughout, but it's seventy pages of hot thrills - very old fashioned in many ways, but all the better for that in my opinion

Let's all get Vennamania!

Thanks to all of you who have followed and given feedback, by the way - this book is dedicated as much to you as to anyone!

When I eat out, I end up wearing food. But if I wore a NOT FOOD T-shirt, being skinny, it would just say 'OT FOOD, which would make matters worse.

He was the meanest of the Fab Four, but a great talent, and more responsible for their rise--and fall--than McCartney. An undeniably pheonomenon.

I did, in fact, once have a pair of glasses just like John Lennon's.

I didn't get mine until 1983, so i was too late to be trendy. I'd just wanted some like that for a long time.  The ones you see in my profile pic are my current style, but I am now sans whiskers, so i need to update that photo...
