This installment of the Dalek Game is for William Golding’s horrible Lord of the Flies, which has made me feel miserable whenever I see a conch shell. It is also a book which I have an odd wish to illustrate, but I think that is just because someone left a Folio Society catalogue lying around, and I now associate the novel with dreamy illustrations. That, or it’s thanks to Bill Willingham’s Fables, with its charming/horrific take on the character and idea of Colin and equally beautiful nightmarish art.
In other news: I have put up some more sketchbook pages (Brisbane post-floods and pre-winter), and Conflux starts on Friday! I will very likely be uploading sketches from time to time on Facebook (if you know me there) and Twitter (tanaudel).
a Dalek in a cork-bedecked hat – tee hee :-P
oh, I didn’t realise Fables had references to Lord of the Flies (I’ve managed to avoid reading the novel).
looking forward to seeing you at Conflux – I will probably lurk in your vicinity trying to look sketchable (not sketchy, in the American sense) :-D
One of the three little pigs is called Colin and some of the things which happen to him echo what happen to “Piggy” in the novel.
It was great to see you!
LOVE the hat!! And the swatter too….
:) Thank you!
