Its odd, a small, quick sketch that basically made very little sense, had more views & response on my Flickr than any other of late.
My only thought at the time was, "I don't knowingly drop biscuits into my tea, how come they end up in the bottom ?" After ruling out magical vortices's (simply through sheer common sense) Octopi seemed the only logical explanation.
What's the point in trying to explain to your work mates the thousand reasons you're late for work ?
Ok , I'm late for work. My car is broken, I cant mend it because there's not enough light to see There's no light to see because Iv'e had to get up too early. Ive had to get up too early so I can try to make it to work on time ...because my car is broken.
So mend it this evening ?
....well. There's not enough light to mend it , because by time I get home it's dark Why go home when it's dark you ask ? ,because I'm trying to make up time for when I was late this morning.
...and yes , I was late because my car is broken >:O(
...and so on. Repeat for several days until it's the weekend.
Static is about where this blog has been for a while. I have been distracted. No apologies.
I remember playing with static in the school workshops. A buffing wheel and a polystyrene block can be terribly seductive to the curious and not so terribly mature mind. The polystyrene beads stayed on the wall & ceiling for weeks . Fun Days.
