I needed a break from my Batman fancomic, and so scribbled Big Barda defending her husband’s fallen form.

The violet scent is sacred 
Like dreams of angels bright;
The hawthorn smells of passion
Told in a moonless night.
 
But the smell is in my nostrils,
Through blossoms red or gold,
Of my own green flower unfading,
A bitter smell and bold.
 
The lily smells of pardon,
The rose of mirth; but mine
Smells shrewd of death and honour,
And the doom of Adam’s line.
 
The heavy scent of wine-shops
Floats as I pass them by,
But never a cup I quaff from,
And never a house have I.
 
Till dropped down forty fathoms,
I lie eternally;
And drink from God’s own goblet
The green wine of the sea.


-G.K. Chesterton, The Mariner

The violet scent is sacred

Like dreams of angels bright;

The hawthorn smells of passion

Told in a moonless night.

 

But the smell is in my nostrils,

Through blossoms red or gold,

Of my own green flower unfading,

A bitter smell and bold.

 

The lily smells of pardon,

The rose of mirth; but mine

Smells shrewd of death and honour,

And the doom of Adam’s line.

 

The heavy scent of wine-shops

Floats as I pass them by,

But never a cup I quaff from,

And never a house have I.

 

Till dropped down forty fathoms,

I lie eternally;

And drink from God’s own goblet

The green wine of the sea.

A wandering world of rivers,A wavering world of trees,If the world grow dim and dizzyWith all changes and degrees,It is but Our Lady’s mirrorHung dreaming in its place,Shining with only shadowsTill she wake it with her face.The standing whirlpool of the stars,The wheel of all the world,Is a ring on Our Lady’s fingerWith the suns and moons empearledWith stars for stones to please herWho sits playing with her ringsWith the great heart that a woman hasAnd the love of little things.Wings of the whirlwind of the worldFrom here to Ishapan,Spurning the flying forests,Are light as Our Lady’s fan:For all things violent here and vainLie open and all at easeWhere God has girded heaven to guardHer holy vanities.
-G.K. Chesterton

A wandering world of rivers,
A wavering world of trees,
If the world grow dim and dizzy
With all changes and degrees,
It is but Our Lady’s mirror
Hung dreaming in its place,
Shining with only shadows
Till she wake it with her face.

The standing whirlpool of the stars,
The wheel of all the world,
Is a ring on Our Lady’s finger
With the suns and moons empearled
With stars for stones to please her
Who sits playing with her rings
With the great heart that a woman has
And the love of little things.

Wings of the whirlwind of the world
From here to Ishapan,
Spurning the flying forests,
Are light as Our Lady’s fan:
For all things violent here and vain
Lie open and all at ease
Where God has girded heaven to guard
Her holy vanities.

-G.K. Chesterton

This is not like most cons, but it’s fun

I will have a table at the G.K. Chesterton conference in Mundelein, Illinois, this weekend. I will mostly be offering my religious and educational art stuff, but also a booklet of Chesterton’s poetry with illustrations by me that will never have been seen anywhere before!

thebestthereiswaswillbe said: The watchtower gif you did is beautiful, do you think you'll do any more art with those 3? I really liked the crayons.

Thank you! And since I earlier offered doodle requests, I will consider that as one:

(And I think I’ll be doing more art of those three on my own too ~_^ )

100 followers! Doodle request time!

snowflakeclockwork:

Yay, I’ve got one hundred followers! In appreciation, it’s request doodle time for a while! Send me an Ask with a character or two you’d like to see me draw! (for better chances of it getting done, characters from things I know would be best; eg. DC, Homestuck, Avatar, Vocaloid, etc. and right now I’m really into Digimon Adventure and Frontier…)

Thanks everyone!

I lost a follower then got another one so it’s the 100 milestone again! Plus I didn’t get any requests the first time… : (
