4th Floor is live! Check out my tiny stuff and all the other great stories and poems…
I would like to spend more time studying drunken dialogue but the problem is, in these situations where there is drunken dialogue to be witnessed, I myself am always too drunk to study it soberly and with the necessary detachment.
This idea came from a typo on my grocery list. Then I decided to play with it in different media; an artistic frenzy, if you will.
From left to right, top to bottom: ink, Prismacolor, Staedtler Triplus, watercolour, Photoshop, Staedtler Triplus/Tombow.
Even with the door shut I can smell the overpowering fragrance.
It resembles frangipani, only it is repulsive.
I have trouble getting to the door because of the smell, and when I grab the handle it flies open, propelled by the force of the vile stench within. I enter the room, moving through the still air like it is, in fact, a hurricane.
I locate the air freshener.
It’s a new device, in the shape of a Ferris wheel, with a big handle protruding from the centre. Around the sides are different holes, allowing for varying strengths of smell, and each strength has a label. I can now see why it smells so strongly: it is set to Oh, Lordy!
Made this card for a friend who has a pet leech.
His name is Doctor Leechpants (the leech, not the friend).
Inside it reads:
Yup. You’re another year older. A new decade, even.
But at least you have feet.
Bought paintbrush at Eckerselys. Very happy with paintbrush.
Looked up things to paint for inspiration. Too many ideas. Freaked out.
Used paintbrush to paint Lynda Barry ‘Syllabus’ inspired cartoon.
Very happy with cartoon.
