Great - weirdly it reminds me of the Subgenius Bible I got back in the 1990s. OK, that was a spoof, but it was packed with catchy slogans, taglines and mysterious imagery.

Ha! Yeah, I could imagine that.

Even though it was a spoof, it was superbly designed. It's a pity they imploded, their stuff was better than the Schwa book...

Just bumping this thread to show off a cake I've made; I'm not 100% happy with it, the icing's a bit bumpy, but it's the most complicated thing I've ever attempted!

(Like a lot of decorative cakes, a lot of it is rice crispies and marshamllow, and there's a pencil holding the horse up :chuckle: )

My mum uses the ready made rice crispy squares, it's a lot less messy apparently

Because things have been...y'know, difficult, I've been comforting myself by collaging my way through the apocalypse.
The book of the apocollage, I call it.

I only just found this. Wow! and again, wow!

I've not been on the forums as much as I'd like as I've been trying to establish my new business, JET Repair, repairing laptops, vintage and modern amplifiers, speakers, DVD, CD, Blue Ray, VHS, computer servicing, virus removal etc etc, sadly but as expected it's slow work, I've only had one job so far since I started canvassing my new no fix, no fee flier! But I'm hopeful for my family that I can get the ball rolling and gradually pick up some loyal customers :)

But I have completed six works this year, 2 sold, my art patron in the US and I fell out, the Hindu pair were commissions by him but he pulled out after they had been completed (!) hence the falling out!

Ganesha Multimedia Altra Piece by John Hope, 02.jpg

Ganesha multimedia altar piece, scroll down for photo of lights on in the dark, I built a false back to the canvas board and push in LED lightbulbs in sem-random order, I then glued in a cover and a battery box running on x2 AA batteries.
