The Dagger by Nikos Kavvadas

Nikos wrote a poem about a dagger with some bad juju living in it. In collage class we had to do an illustration for it, and so this is what I came up with.

I looked at the Stinky Cheeseman a lot while making this piece.

China Story #2:

When we were in Lijiang, China in the Yunnan province there was an old man carrying groceries walking down the road. He was about to cross the small wooden bridge when two stray dogs met up on the bridge and started starting shit with each other. The old man looked at them and then furrowed his eyebrows and grew a large frown. He started yelling stuff like "Scram!" in Chinese. The dogs paid no heed. So the old man, with his armful of vegetables kicked the closer dog square in the gut and sent it flying into the neighboring vegetable garden. "Stupid dog! I told you to move didn't I !?" And he crossed the bridge and vanished into one of the small side streets.

Picture Pending...
