Little Miss Muffet...


... got off her tuffet.

It occurs to me that I'm unintentionally producing a series of artworks that depict children in rather unusual situations with potentially dangerous creatures. I do not wish harm on any child, not even the Snow Pile Kids (who have been scarce this winter); more likely these images are subconsciously popping out of a buried place of my own faced and discarded fears. I am no longer afraid of bears (thanks to the .454 Casull) or spiders (thanks to four years in the basement), not the oversized common house spider (Achaearanea tepidariorum) above or even hobos, a few of which I've met and conquered above ground, too. So no, I am not subliminally sending threatening messages to those of you with young children. I just believe in the monsters that only kids understand.

The drawing is strangely compelling. I hope you post more.

Happy New Year by the way. All the best in 09.

Thank you, you too!

This is the accidental companion piece to November's "Calvin and the Bear." Brent has suggested a sea monster next... can a girl jump rope with a squid?
