Working with my diverse sources of imagery I have been putting together pictures over the past few days. The funny thing is that I work on these for hours and hours and hours, and when I come here to present all my work it can be a little surprising that in all that time it turns out that I have only produced a total of six pictures.
Beyond time and style and tools, there isn't a lot to link up all these pictures. One of the greatest Children's book illustrators and writers, Chris Van Allsburg, whose work I have stolen a bit of in the past and surely will steal more of in the future, wrote a book called The Mysteries of Harris Burdick that has a series of compelling, somewhat inscrutable illustrations, and mostly leaves the reader to come up with their own stories to them. So, because that seems fairly easy, and a useful solution to my problem, that's what I'll do today myself, though obviously not as well.
Nevertheless here are my six pictures and whatever inscrutable caption I can now come up with for each one.
