A new banner

Another lazy weekender in honour of the book “release” party and probable hangover I will have Sunday, not to mention the Kids Extreme Run we’ll be watching Wump participate in …

Anyway, I’ve been working on a few little portraits for a while, and just got around to scanning them and assembling them into a little group, more or less correctly scaled. I turned it into a banner for the blog.


Or you can check the banner at the top of the page, once I get a chance to update it … but since that will probably change again in the months and years to come, I’ll attach it here too. Sadly the banner version is a bit bulky and probably hard to read.

The quote – They were few, but they were forever. And they would stand beside the Firstmades at the end of days, and weep with joy – is from Bad Cow. I’ll leave the characters unnamed but you can probably take a few guesses.

The case’s labels need to be filled in with texts, but it wound up getting late so I’m calling it a night.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

    The app doesn’t actually show us the banner as it doesn’t display your blog in desktop format. And as per usual, photos do not open in any sort of viewable scale.
