This months subject was science fiction.
The fellow who won did a marvellous collage involving giant guinea pigs attacking a city.
It was one of two I had trouble deciding between.
His name is Michael Woodruff, and I know nothing about him but will endeavour to look him up.

It seems everytime I post a bunch of cute animal pictures, I get plenty of feedback.
I don't especially dig drawing cute animals.
Cute animals in peril are more exciting to me.
Also - I whipped this up because I've been busy and I'm not far from leaving and I hate to go without posting something.

The lyrebird really isn't very dangerous unless you throw it at someone.
It can sound dangerous though, as it's the animal worlds best mimick.
If you murder someone with a chainsaw and it has a listen to it, it can make exactly the same noise (it's true - eerily so).
No many people know that all lyrebirds are made of chalk.
The koala is not very dangerous unless you let them climb up you, or bite you.
The interesting fact about the koala is that they have two thumbs.
Another lesser known fact about the koala is that they are the only animal eligible for half price ticket at the cinema.

For those not in the know, the Goons was a radio comedy show that ran through the late 40's to almost the 60s.
They were enormously influential on many, many British comedians, Monty Python probably being the most obvious example.
The team was made up of Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe.
Spike wrote pretty much all of it and it's a rather hard show to describe.
Anarchy is the word that springs to mind.
