An Ode to Otis the Owl

He was the smoothest owl on the whole darn team
And he made every shot with no effort it would seem

And after he made a shot a little dance he would do
And the kicks on his feet would come alive like a zoo

B-ball was his game and he was quite good at it
But being a smooth owl is how he got all his credit

After the game all the chicky owls would come by
Get his autograph and then fly away into the sky

And the sunnies on his head made his presence electric
And wearing them increased his skills from super to hectic

This is a collage I made and is the third in a series of four.

You can buy a print here.

An Ode to Eiffel Tower Boat People

I emerged from the deep
In a lake so smooth
The Eiffel tower so sleek
I was in my groove

My appearance here
Was wholly unexpected
But I was very near
And the boat people were unaffected

The tower loomed
Like a steel beast
Large and overhead
My eyes did feast

Oh the wonder
That I did behold
On this very day
A statement bold

This is a collage I made and is two in a series of four.

An Ode to the Great Wall of China

Hello out there
Can you see me here?
Behind the boats
Quite far not near

I’ve made a discovery
So alarming to me
The Great Wall of China
Not where it’s meant to be

Like a snake in the grass
Through the hills it winds
I can’t believe I’ve found it
This find of finds

Yet something else
Is slightly off key
In the sky above
A creature like me

Doesn’t anyone notice?
Doesn’t anyone care?
I see three moons
And that sight is rare

Walrus Pyramid

An Ode to Walrus Pyramid

I journeyed with my pals
Into the sea
The walrus folk
Are just like you and me

They value family and friends
And getting along
And making amends
When things go wrong

Then we saw a thing so weird
A pyramid in the sea
The walrus folk were all so freaked
As well as me

Why is there smoke
Shooting from the peak
Of a pyramid so ancient
Emerging from the deep

A question such as this
Shall linger on
But we shall leave
Singing our walrus song

Joshua The Jolly Elephant – Video

This is a time lapse video of me creating Joshua the Jolly Elephant.

I also recite a poem about Joshua which I composed whilst staying in the African Jungle with a herd of African Elephants called the Big Grey Crew.

They are a lively bunch.

Joshua the Jolly Elephant

joshua the jolly elephant-slide

This is Joshua the Jolly Elephant. I was commissioned to paint him by a dude called Joshua.

An Ode to Joshua the Jolly Elephant

Joshua the Jolly Elephant sure knows how to have fun
From the early morning to the setting of the sun

He’s always playing games and singing a song
If you’re in his presence you’ll be smiling before long

He is the CEO of the Fun Time Crew
A gang of animals where having fun ain’t nothing new

Every quarter they organise the fun time games
All the animals join in, even the ones with manes

They have running races and tunnel ball
Bobbing for apples and so much more

They have the best darn fun in the land
And as we know having fun is oh so grand
