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, 2 R’s in a D2 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 beeps and their boops - what a scene!
I saw the number #1 when I was lost in the gardens of Fort Nightmare looking for some pinecones. I had a craving for some pinecone stew - just like my Great Auntie Chin-Hair used to make. I was wonderin’ about with a full basket, when I felt a prickle and a tickle from what looked liked a pickle. I rubbed my eyes once, then I rubbed ‘em twice and saw this cactus lookin’ fella runnin’ off into the hedgerows with all of my ‘cones. I tried to chase him down but he was going lickety split quickety quick. Watch out for this one people - he cost me a delicious bowl of pinecone stew through and through!
