Dalek of the Flies

Dalek of the Flies

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).

  1. 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
