I like wallhangings. But it's always important to allow each piece some breathing space.

Two works by Jean Giraud (who is better known as Moebius )






An original exhibition poster, Bruce Weber.





My map of Medieval Amsterdam.




A 15th Century wooden panel, depicting a Pelican.



These still need to go up:

They are from Nick (Softvinyl's) fave childhood book

(And one of mine)

Maurice Sendaks' Where The Wild Things Are

The hero of the story, a boy who dreams about Monsters on a far off island, is just to the far left in the shot

Classic Monsters Galore!
eevadan | 14/08/2007 | See all eevadan's reviews (8) »

When I bought "Where the Wild Things Are" for my 4-year-old son, I wasn't sure it would go down well: there is very little text (very stream-of-consciousness stylistically) so the story relies heavily on the illustrations and as they aren't the bold, bright colours that most kids' books nowadays are, I thought my son might not be taken in by the book. I couldn't have been more mistaken!

The hero of the story, Max, is sent to bed with no dinner as he has been up to mischief in his wolf-suit. However, Max's room magically transforms in to a forest and so he travels to the land of the monsters. The monsters are truly terrible- (but also quite funny-) looking, with their silly hair and mismatched bodyparts. When Max arrives they roar, grind their teeth and reveal their long sharp claws, but Max tells them to be quiet and so he becomes their king - the monsters are scared of the little boy! All together they dance a monster dance, but as he can smell the wonderful aroma of dinner… more »

The monsters are truly terrible- (but also quite funny-) looking, with their silly hair and mismatched bodyparts. When Max arrives they roar, grind their teeth and reveal their long sharp claws, but Max tells them to be quiet and so he becomes their king - the monsters are scared of the little boy! All together they dance a monster dance, but as he can smell the wonderful aroma of dinner from somewhere on the other side of the world, Max realises that he wants to be where he feels most loved. So he decides to travel back home, and even though the monsters threaten to gobble him up, he leaves. And as Max returns home, he has dinner waiting for him in his room.

There are quite a few things here that always make my son think (mummy sending Max to bed with no dinner, the scary first encounter with the monsters, for example) but as the story has an extremely warm and satisfying end, I don't think it's a bad thing at all. Where the Wild Things Are is one of my favorite books to read to my son, and he seems to find something new in the story every time we read it.


Sounds rather good

I sort of hate to ask this in a way, but has it been made into a film?

(knowing the way films can ruin imagination, especially that of a childs)

It has been made into a lot of things

There has been a theatre play, I think, which looked wonderful...

I vaguely recall seeing something on the beeb too, that was animated.

Hmm time to Google/Wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Where_the_Wild_Things_Are

Yes, there seems to be a film in the works!

Here's some cool stuff:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value=" src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

The 1983 Disney test:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value=" src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

A claymation version :

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value=" src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>



And finally this contains a few pics from the New Spike Jonze movie !

Hi Ant, I was jesting, we're yet to decorate our new home yet. Only done my daughter's bedrooms so far.

Is that a Tiffany lampshade in you living room? Very nice pics by the way I also like the fact you have vertical pleated blinds over your patio doors, very wise considering it's south facing so gets a lot of light / heat in the summer.

Thanks Roger, yes the Tiffany lampshades are real got three in total, they were christmas presents over the years from the other half He knows what a fussy bitch I am lol. Our place in summer is like a hot house, seriously considering having air conditioning installed, which would mean a few cutbacks on things like hols etc...but anything so as not to be humid and sticky YUK, that makes me such a bad tempered person and I'm not at all really. Got oscillating fans in everyroom and some crazy device David bought which takes frozen blocks of liquid to cool the air down.

Effee lays in front of the big fan 24/7 lol.

Cheers Ant! They are cool lampshades. Effee knows where it's cool! I overheat all the time due to running everywhere and being quite heavy built, so i agree with you on the dislike of being too hot. I avoid the tube completely - hence the running.

Oscillating is a great word I've never used it except when talking about fans!

Went on the tube that really hot Monday in May 08, turned the corner on the underground and the hot air was rushing past so fast it almost took my breath away, not a nice sensation.

Yes. I interviewed him shortly after the Vittel water commercial and I got an autograph in return.

Then after I photographed one of his shows the whole band signed their poster and gave it to me- that has yet to be framed.

I'm no arty farty art critic by any means, but this is a few of what hangs on my walls.


Saw this painting in Newcastle and searched for years to get it. I don't think it's artistically correct, but love it.

Alexander Millar... "Almost home"



A painting i picked up at a local art college. Don't know the artists name, but i called it "Reunited"



A picture by my partner. Nameless



And this i picked up in Turkey years ago, made of leather. Everbody hates it and scared the kids when toddlers.



Thats all folks.
