Squid Ink – Journey to the Centre of the Earth

Posted on 5 August 2010. Filed under: Squid Ink | Tags: , , |

Journey to the Centre of the Earth

Born in Nantes, Western France in 1828. Jules Verne was an author extraordinaire. Along with H. G. Wells he was considered the founding father of science fiction despite neither of them actually attempting to claim that title. Some people claim Hugo Gernsback and Edgar Allan Poe should share that same title. This cartoon stands, or rather, swims for itself.

Squid Ink Reads The Bible

Posted on 29 July 2010. Filed under: Squid Ink | Tags: , , |

Squid Ink reads The Bible

The Bible is the world’s most read book. I’m sure therefore it is the world’s most discussed book (that is discussed not disgusted, although if a book could speak it might tell us it was disgusted but that’s another story). Squid Ink seems to have the water and the fish, but is missing the loaves. Does it matter if Squid Ink is missing the loaves, does Squid Ink eat bread? I will have to ask the artist.

Sherlock Holmes – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Sherlock Holmes Squid Ink Style

The greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes has been parodied and made into so many movies. He stayed at a non-existent address which has since been ‘located’ and created into a shop. I’ve been there and could have had my photo taken with the cap that he supposedly wore.

There have been many books and movies written about Dracula, but the best books are the original which I’ve scribbled a few words here about and Dracula – The Un-Dead written by a descendent of Bram Stoker, you can find the few words I’ve written here. Here is the Squid Ink version.

The Tyger – William Blake

The Tyger - William Blake

THE TYGER (from Songs Of Experience)

By William Blake

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare sieze the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art.
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

1794

Wizard of Oz – Squid Ink

Wizard of Oz - Squid Ink style

The Wizard of Oz is a perennial favourite. Most people of my vintage recall Judy Garland doing a slightly-too-old Dorothy in the 1939 movie. This cartoon is The Wizard of Oz as seen through the eyes of Squid Ink. I’m sure you already know, but there were actually 14 books in the Oz series and I’ve got them all for sale on the website.

Jaws – Peter Benchley

Jaws - Squid Ink

The novel, Jaws, was originally written by Peter Benchley in 1974. It was a great book and the tension was held on tight right through to the very end. I read it when I was much younger but have never seen the movie, it was bad enough reading the book I never wanted to be made totally scared of the sea. I saw an interview with Steven Spielberg a few days ago and he was saying how he felt it would be much scarier if we never actually saw the shark.

Squid Ink - The Last Continent

We give our grateful thanks to Terry Pratchett for being such an understanding man and letting us get away with creating cartoons from his works.

P.S. Is that enough grovelling?
