Dēor-Hord: A Medieval and Modern Bestiary

I’m helping to¬†illustrate Hana Videen’s new blog, Dēor-Hord: A Medieval and Modern Bestiary. Woohoo!

I’m completely fascinated by any kind of history, so I’m really excited to be involved with Hana’s new blog. It’s about how medieval artists had to try and visualise exotic animals based on travellers’ (possibly exaggerated) descriptions, without having actually seen the real animals… with interesting results!

If you want to know more, Hana can write a much better description of what Bestiary is, than I ever can. So go read it!

C is for… Cat!

c_v002_flat

“C”, is for, “Cat”, of course. And, “Castle”. And, “Cream”. And, “Cushion”. And, “Crown”. And, “Chain”. And, “Claws”.

It’s hard to stop thinking of things that begin with a, “C”, now.

How many lizards does it take to change a light bulb? I have no idea, but I’m guessing three?

The North Pole is very cold and dark. Deaf Inuits had to dispense with mittens and invent special gloves in order to sign at each other.
