The Font

If you’ve not heard of the tale of the Font of Knowledge then gather close and I’ll tell you a story. In 1972 a crack commando unit was dispatched to Leuven in Belgium to protect the fabled Font of Knowledge from some unknown impending threat. The font, which can allegedly produce an unlimited amount of crisp and cold Stella Artois, disappeared from right under their noses. There have been no confirmed sightings since.┬áLegend has it that it was somehow smuggled to the UK and is now hidden deep in the English countryside. where it’s said to be guarded by two mechanical sentries called Tick and Tock. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe Tick and Tock will allow you to sup from the font and access the knowledge of the ages. Or maybe they’ll impale you on their tiny swords. Who knows?

My rendition of Tick and Tock is on a 80 x 30cm canvas and may be the best clue you have to find the font. Drop us a line if interested…

Cheers

The Eternal Sentry

After watching Night at the Museum over Christmas I decided my precious shed/studio needed a little more in the way of protection when I’m not there to ensure the precious things are safe. After a little deliberation I decided that it’s probably best that he’s armed and armoured so a knight on sentry duty seemed like a pretty good option. Incidentally, I’m not sure if the dog/dragon thing he seems to be stood on is a vanquished foe or loyal sidekick. You’ll have to work that one out for yourself. I’ve not been out in the evening to check he’s actually doing his duty but it’s cold out there so I’m just hoping he’s not a slacker. He seemed like a good sort…

Cheers

The Belgian Takedown

If you’ve never heard of the Belgian takedown I’m hardly surprised. It’s a particularly nasty method for a soldier to take out an enemy sentry whereby you sneak up behind him and grab his ankles from under him to take him to the floor then kick him in the family jewels whilst he’s down to induce shock then silently dispatch him by whatever means you like. Anyway, this guy is a Belgian takedown master. It’s his forte. He’s that good at it that they’ve given him medals for it. He has got a pretty intense stare though…
