The last Troll ....

This will be the last post of my lovely time as a guest at the "Troll and Legends" festival, just a couple of pieces of work I showed, along with a 'couple' of photos I took in Brussels.
I will start with Brussels .... and maybe end there ... we'll see.The following pictures are just 'snaps' no real manipulation except a little slight cropping or, like here, converted to B/W.
Castle found in Brussels where it was very hot!
Brussels has some interesting architecture. All the buildings, even ordinary houses, appear different in stark contrast to 20th century architectural England, though recent modern architecture does show more interesting variety. Of course Art Nouveau does 'rule' as with this example with what appears to be an ironic "title".

The markets too had some interesting artefacts on sale, as these examples show.

Brussels is also renowned for its 'comic trail', we didn't follow it as such but did come across these parts as we wondered wilting in the heat.

Lastly, in the photographs of Brussels ... the wabbit, the Purple Wabbit, in my first shot a young dwarf wandered in and sat down ... but he does help us 'see' the scale!

'Who needs a Bugs, when you has a Purple wabbit!' says Elmer.
Purple Wabbits Rule!

Now for a few pics I took to Mons .. I didn't have time to join a couple together so I hope you'll forgive....

The following Goblins, which some may recognise from the Calific website, are hatching plans, but that is in the future, as is this ...a draft version of a new cover for a future Calific publication [check their website for details later in the year].
''Wheze haz plans as soons as we can read der maps''.

Think that's about it from the Troll's . I did ask last post if anyone wanted to see more of the picture 'dedications' I did ... and there was a resounding silence. Ah well, fair enough. I do try and listen so no more will be posted .... except one last Photograph.

Then a roar went up.... a roar for Troll Beer!!
Troll Beer Rules! 
[eff off wabbit]

next time no more rules [grin] just a couple of new pieces I hope. Till then.
