Queen Gob

sketchbook project page
The Queen and The Drawing Teacher

"According to medieval beliefs gnomes were deformed,
usually with a hunchback and were led by a King called Gob."
Ha! More like Queen Gob
disguised as a chocolate box girl
sweet on the outside
poison on the inside
The gnome was her servant of intrigue
together they weaved mischief
and fed off its anguish
like parasites

Weave intrigue and fend off anguish, I like this. Besides the gnome and I look alike.

Gnomes sound like American children...although perhaps without the humps.

gnomes can be cute but boy, not this one Ed, he was an instrument of trouble and he became the instrument of spite by the hurt box bitch/chocolate box girl/queen gob. I had never thought it possible for two people to be so involved in petty endeavors to hurt others. phew!

I was curious to see what would be inside the hurt box, as you said the mouth was a hole and there would be something on the next page when you turn over. Now I am curious to know who the gnome is in relation to the bitch! I'm just far too nosey!

The hole and everything is very cleverly thought out.

thanks undaunted :) The hurt box bitch was my neighbour who wooed me into a friendship I sorely regretted. She is to be credited for encouraging me to go into art. she suggested I take my first art class with her friend (the gnome) at the local college. By the time I finished the first semester I figured there was something odd going on but dismissed it. By the time I finished the second class I KNEW there was something unhealthy going on and decided to have nothing further to do with either of them. they were not having an affair, but they they were having an affair with drama and intrigue ala dangerous liaisons (like the movie). They caused a lot of problems for the college, for others students, and for me.

Ooh, I haven't seen that film, but they do sound like a nasty couple. I'm glad you managed to pull away from their friendship without it affecting your interest in art. Thank you for explaining it all!
