Re: ECCE same: Behold the Man



ECCE H0M0 - Friedrich Nietzsche

Ja, ich weiß, woher ich stamme,
Ungesättigt gleich der Flamme
Glühe und verzehr’ ich mich.
Licht wird alles was ich fasse,
Kohle alles, was ich lasse,
Flamme bin ich sicherlich

BEHOLD THE MAN

Yes, I know from whence I came
Insatiated, just as the flame
I glow and consume all that is me
Light becomes everything I touch
Coals are what I leave of such
A flame I am, certainly

Re: The Love Song of J A lfred Prufrock



I'm a little late to the party this time around.


Just trying out some digital painting techniques. I wanted to give this an Impressionist look & a little texture, not sure how successful I was...

Re: A Nauseous Nocturne



VERY well done! I'm a C&H junkie from the time Watterson's work first appeared as a strip, and this is one of the all-time best. Really, who else would construct the rhyme: "As speedily my end approaches,
I bid a final "buenas noches"? It's, like, art, man!

*snaps fingers, adjusts beret*

Seriously, this poem and the accompanying artwork from the first C&H anthology showed what Watterson could do when not on deadline for a daily strip. There are a few artists on this site who, I think, have the same potential. I'd put Apelad in that small group for his 'Laugh-out-loud Cats' strip alone.

Thanks for finding this poem and introducing it to others, for working a great shirt design from it, and for reminding me that it's time to re-read the 'Complete C&H'.

Re: Lazy Jane



Beeeeeeeee-
-eautiful work. A much-needed and most refreshing change from the standard derby entries. I'd love to see this in the fog and, if not, for it to print from another site. Both of my daughters are grown now, but I'd get them each one as a reminder of their youths, when Mom & Ol' Daddy-O used to sit and read with them.

Then I'd guilt them out for not calling often enough.

nbest wrote:Narcissus or Narkissos (Greek: Νάρκισσος), possibly derived from ναρκη (narke) meaning "sleep, numbness," in Greek mythology was a hunter from the territory of Thespiae in Boeotia who was renowned for his beauty. He was exceptionally proud, in that he disdained those who loved him. Nemesis saw this and attracted Narcissus to a pool where he saw his own reflection in the waters and fell in love with it, not realizing it was merely an image. Unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, Narcissus died.[1]



How is that on topic?

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Read the thread to see what poem this was for and still don't have an answer. Anyone? Makes it seem like a rather generic design that could have been submitted to any number of derbies.

Staff, (or Ramyb, if you'd care to answer), I'd also like to know what (genuine) poem this shirt represents. If it's from the Willie Wonka song, it should be disqualified. That song was written specifically for the movie. Despite what some misinformed web sites may say, Roald Dahl did not write it, and it wasn't in his books. It was never published as poetry. There is poetry, and there are song lyrics, and while the two are intertwined, they are not the same.

I adore e. e. cummings and this is an absolutely beautiful way of capturing not just the imagery of the poem but also the feel of it. I love this.

Come to think of it, I might be even happier if it printed on another site that has less voluminous blanks.
