Feastock 2014 Ate My Homework

…after selling all the tickets of Feastock 2014…IMG_0525

 

…I attended…IMG_0856

 

…Seedy had chewed his nails so far down that he had to switch to pineapple lumps…

..Crispy appeared to be filming blind…IMG_0840

 

…and Callum was behind the stacks practicing his “thank-yous” announcement…IMG_0841

 

…well practiced he was, thanking Too Tone 3 times in the course of his speech….(did I make too much fuss about being left out last year?)….

…to shorten the toilet queues, security were directing the lads to this oasis of alternative utrination…

…mmmm….sulubrious….

…you guys might want to not encourage that next year…the puddle was getting hard to negotiate (with) by the end of the event…

…and don’t tell any one how shitfaced, Dee and AJ were….

…as per-ususal my Feastock ends in a hazy red blur for another year.

…the authorities have all the photographic evidence, they know who you are.

 

…(it is taking ages too get over the excesses of saturday..normal transmission may never be resumed).

…have placed this epistle in it’s own category to make it easier to group together…Scan 252

 

…then all you have to do is select that cat’s, start at the bottom & scroll up.

Here We Go

…the longest cartoon I’ve attempted in the near thirty years (on & off) I’ve been doing this…

…7 pages, plotted… not made up as I go along…

…and to make things really interesting, pages 3-6 are being done with a terrible cold/flu thing…

…(a recent “gift” from my good friend Dee)…

…it is episodic (the cartoon, not the disease) and will take a couple of weeks to reach it’s conclusion (I can only fit 3 A4 pages a week in around the rest of my so called life)…

…so bare with me…

…ahem-hem…

…as usual we find our “heroes” extracting a licence from a packet of their favourite cereal…

…oooo, cliffhanger!

More Penguin News

…my good friend Dee’s resident penguin…is still resident…and now he’s moulting…

…which means he’s with us for a few weeks at least…

…and he’s a little more acclimatised to Dee & Me being around so I managed a snap sans grimy glass…

…mmm…penguin sheddings…

 

 

IMG_0782 IMG_0784

 

…they’re so fluffy!…especially close in…serious insulation….

…hopefully the Dept’ Of Conservation comes to the party re: warning signage…spent most of the Easter break chasing un-leashed dogs away with a broom…

…no matter how “in-control” people think they are of their townie mutts, it doesn’t take more than a second to bite a penguin…

…although I’ve seen him throw a shape & squawk at a couple of would-be predators & he’s packing an impressive defence mechanism!

The Next Best Thing To Happy Feet

…well, better than happy feet…IMG_0715

…because he’s real …

IMG_0719

…and he’s just outside my good friend Dee’s place…

IMG_0725

…and you can drink coffee and make a snack whilst observing him…

IMG_0727

 

…shoes & pants optional.

 

 

Yellow eyed penguins are rare & protected in NZ…this little fella has been caught & relocated from this beach twice now…lots of dog walking in the area….wish Dee’s windows hadn’t been so sand splattered…didn’t think it wise to snap him from outside as there wasn’t anything for me to hide behind!….cool neighbour for a day though.
