I visited the Museum of Natural History again a couple of days ago.
This is a traditional Amazonian arse flute.
This is an Amazonian preparing themselves for the rigors of arse flute playing.
This is a collection of ceremonial toilet seats, sat upon only by arse flute masters.
Neil Ross watched on with menace in his eyes.

Last night Channel Frederator put on NYC's first Drinking and Drawing get together.
In short, animators were required to turn up, drink, then were given 8 frames to draw in 10 minutes following on from the animator that came before them.
A bit like animated Chinese whispers.
I know that my pals in London are all thinking "So all the animators get together and get maggoted and draw...Isn't that called "going to work?"".
It was a very jolly affair and I got to meet all kinds of good folks, including Bill Plympton, who I've been stealing from for years (but not his satchel, which disappeared).
I was very happy to follow on from Bill's frames, but in typical fashion I managed to create nothing better than a series of childlike scribbles that provided more embarrassment than entertainment.

Warwick Johnson Cadwell is not a former US president, but with a name like that he should be.
Instead, he's a terrific illustrator with an exceptional talent for well written outlandish stories.
Visit his blog and read them - they start at the bottom of the page and go up.
In unrelated matters, here is a picture of me with a cork up my nose.
