Go Here, Look At This
It’s Roald Dahl week over at Mounds and Circles for those of you who might care. (General light-NSFW warning for the occasional boob and crude peen drawing over at M & C.) The neon line-sketch portrait of Dahl in their header is pretty neat, and the write-ups of Tales of the Unexpected are amusing, but the real good stuff are the illustrations from Dahl’s books — like these for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory that look like they were done by R. Crumb, but were done by Faith Jaques instead.
Never saw this Mounds and Circles site before (I swear to you Inspector, I was just walking by minding my own business when IT happened). It’s got the English wet flannels on a late afternoon drizzly twilight on the moors weird down quite properly. Not just for Dahl but for everything it touches. And there’s a whole bunch of other sites just as creepy that it links to. How do you do it Mr. Howe?
It’s a blessing disguised as a curse buried beneath a layer of soggy damp bog dirt.
As simple and normal as that!
Yup. The secret is in how soggy the dirt is.
