Welcome to #FortNightMare - a fortnightly illustrated alphabet project that I’ve started for the grand year of 2016. Now, as you know, there are 26 fortnights in a year, 12 naps in a sack and 26 letters in the alphabet - how convenient is that? Every two weeks I’m gonna crudely draw one of the Fort Nightmare residents so that you can watch out for their bams and their boozles - what a scene!
The letter #A is the first fella I saw when I walked through the gates of Fort Nightmare. He was standing near the edge of the grounds, pretending to be a log. He woulda swindled me too if I hadn’t noticed the fact that he was covered in pants ’n’ socks. I pointed it out to him and he started crying tears from all six of his beady little eyes. I told him not to worry, and that he was beautiful on the inside even if he smelled a bit like pants on the outside. He thanked me, but then he tripped me up as I was walking up the path and stole my library card. Don’t let them alligator tears hoax you none - he’s a crafty one!
