Deranged Domesticity

A Werewolf at Leisure.

Indigestible sandwiches on The Magic Hairball of the Ruby Eyed Panther.

I will make some visits today.

It's like a smiley face button.

Subby said...

For a minute there I thought this was Christopher Hewlitt (Mr. Belvedere ). Uncanny resemblance!

Subby said...

Nice touch with the "moon" :)

Eva said...

I remember other werewolves burst out of their suits when transforming -- but here's the solution!

Celeste Bergin said...

Thanks for the link about the exploding sandwiches! whoa is right! and your werewolf...smug in his anonymity, he could pounce any moment. The button... is a symbol--? Perhaps for being buttoned down? Or buttoned up?

Yikes! Deranged domesticity, exploding sandwiches, panther hairballs ... we're not in Kansas (or wonderland) any more. But it's all goof fun.

Lorenzo — Alchemist's Pillow said...

Sorry, meant to say 'good' fun, not 'goof' fun, but I have to say it is probably a very revealing slip, Freudian or otherwise.

ArtSparker said...

Subby has called it, it really is just the moon. But Celeste, there is something in what you say, as if the moon is somehow restrained. Somebody said "Werewolves are hairy on the inside".

Eva said...

A mother-of-pearl moon... how romantic!

Shayna Prentice said...

Good to see you back - love your werewolf and his moon!

Sarah said...

I love it! I never knew how werewolves spent their free time but now I do! Very snappy jacket!

Chris David Richards said...

I don't trust him, even if he does have very nice horns.

ArtSparker said...

Chris- the fact that he is such and evidently well-fed werewolf counts in his disfavor.

Cláudia said...

Funny, the first thing I saw was the devil himself. Then the word werewolf appeared and I saw it too. But I guess they are both in the same gang, aren't they?

I loved to read the comments! People here are so inspired!

Yeah, I have been missing this corner of the internet!

California Girl said...

Hi AS! Is this in reference to anything or just for fun? I like the coat and matching horns.

California Girl said...

OK, just read through the comments...the "horns" are ears and the button is the moon.

I get it now.

ArtSparker said...

CG- but do I get it? I like the stories my readers unpack.

ger said...

Well, that´s exactly how one imagines a serial killer to look... hope the batteries are sufficiantly recharged (having some problems with them here, too...)

Steve said...

And you just know that chair is real leather...

Fresca said...

Funny how long 4 days can seem!
Nice to see you back: are you refreshed?

Werewolves wear Fun Fur.

Totalfeckineejit said...

I used to be a Werewolf, but I'm alright nowoooooooooooooooo!

That's my kind of suit, does it come in 42" short?

Clowncar said...

reminds me of Max wearing the wolf suit in Wild Things.

Love "Werewolves are hairy on the inside." I've never heard that before.

Jasmine said...

I love his coat and the button eye. Naomi's favourite film right now is Coraline, where the evil other mother tries to get Coraline to swap her eyes for buttons.

JJ Beazley said...

So, he likes shopping at thrift stores. Don't we all? (Of course, the bats' ears have a much darker story to tell.)

mouse (aka kimy) said...

nice to see you back and fully charged!!

now i'm itchy!

jude said...

nothing like a fuzzy guy....

JJ Beazley said...

Clowncar: 'Werewolves are hairy on the inside' comes from a film that was a re-telling of the Little Red Riding Hood story. Wish I could remember the title. It starred Angela Lansbury. I remember it had a naked woman climbing into a well at the end. I would!

ArtSparker said...

JJ- I think you've identified it, it is from one of Angela Carter's fairytale retellings (or warpings).

JJ Beazley said...

Did I get something right? That's new. Hello Susan. How is northern California? California's a big place, isn't it? There's a good Stephen Rea film set there, I think - about a dying photographer. I remember feeling a sense of identity with it. I'm hopeless on titles.

ArtSparker said...

JJ- will look for the film.

Yes, it's largish. I am hoping to get Shayna here for a visit at some point, though.

Emma J said...

I do like this restrained moon - to my eye though it is a buttoned-up thought of a moon. A would-be wolfish fellow thinking about changing into werewolf - wishing for the change? or waiting for it?

Cobalt Violet said...

He's fantastic!

tony said...

ah ,Angela Carter.a Great Lost Voice.

SarahJane said...

Love this. And that button is a hoot.

Kaetlyn Wilcox said...

I was reading a duality into the button-moon. A simultaneous symbol of wildness and domesticity. A whole story arose in my mind where the button takes the place of the moon. His wife takes out her sewing kit. A button falls to the floor, and the transformation begins!

rosedale's 4head said...

i like this intriguing...the button is a fascinating touch...

Tomás Serrano said...

Wonderful coat he wears!

Son of Incogneato said...

Love it. So you.
