    Elvis plays dice! And Elvis is God! At least some of the time… And when he sings I bet I can hear angels, flying away to spread the message, or maybe hide. Fine!

      hahahaa! i was originally going to call this one ‘the beyonder’, which was a character from the old marvel superhero comics, or something.. he was basically this massive, supreme being who lived at ‘the end’ of the universe.. maybe that’s where Elvis will live, someday haha

    I see this list on the right side, saying Good people. Where is the list with the bad ones? Or they are punished for not being good? Bad people are more interesting and make great stories, if they are not related to you!

    • Hello, Fig says:

      the bad people are on a secret list i am compiling. i intend to name and shame the bad people at some point, maybe in the national press

      ummm, seriously tho, i think the ‘good people’ list rotates on a regular basis :)

    • Hello, Fig says:

      YAY! thanks, anna!x

      • How do you construct these beautiful pieces? Do you cut them out of books and paste them together, or is it done via computer? I love all of them!

      • Hello, Fig says:

        well, i basically have a stash of old magazines / books that i take the images from and combine them. with this one the images were taken from books on the Hubble space telescope, optical illusions, close-up photography (his hair is actually butterfly wings) the 1984 ‘Top of the Pops’ annual, and some burgundy crepe paper..

      • That’s so cool! I love the idea of bringing together so many elements to create a recognisable whole.

    That oblong, weird dice shape is awesome. Did you make it so, or is that how the dice were?

  6. OMG, this blog is seriously amazing! I like the surreal feel of it. I would love to have your take on something I’ve written http://wp.me/p3i2IZ-1jL . Thank you.

    • Hello, Fig says:

      hey aravind, sorry for the delay replying.. i love the vocabulary / feel of yr story. all its sentences have a good linguistic flow to them imo

      at times i thought yr play with language overcame my ability to understand it

      this is not necessarily a bad thing

      my favourite part was the sheeps / scotland part :D

      hope ur well, Ben:)
