We have some rather lovely views at work – we can see the Downs, the sky, the sea, and the building is currently riddled with swifts on top of the usual seagulls. Also, if I happen to require the company of a sheep this can be solved with a ten-minute walk, which is obviously vital! (The big cloud on the left is sort of spawning a Cloudsheep if you squint.)
This one is Based On A True Thing I Saw Today- hence the minimal monsterage. It was an enormous motorised longboard whizzing along the road with the girl clinging on the rider’s leg for dear life, somehow contriving to look both bored and in fear of her life. I hope they got home alright!
So I had an exciting weekend with Small People! Who, as per tradition, coloured in and improved upon some monsters for me.
It turns out these monsters are both members of an orchestra – the top one’s heads play a remarkable variety of instruments, considering the creature lacks any kind of hands; the bottom one is a drummer, and an endangered herbivore at that.
The drummosaur can be found in orchestras across Cambridge. It’s an endangered species and eats potato and carrot peel. You can save it by leaving your green rubbish on the doorstep. -A Small Person
To aid in their musical endeavours, I added a conductor and a saxophonist, which the Small People have faithfully promised to colour for me in my absence – watch this space!
