Scribbledehobbledehoyden: The Magpie's Eye: Page 178


Another collage, this one of images from Goya's Los Caprichos, and, I think, a Chris Van Allsburg book.   Not a very accomplished collage, but how far wrong can you go when the ingredients are that good.

Or by any chance the last page of David Wiesner's Tuesday? Totally brilliant book.

(No, on second thought, didn't that just show the shadows of pigs? Damn, this is frustrating, most of my picture books are in storage at the moment.)--Mario

No, I think it is Tuesday. Michael confused things by turning the page upside-down, though.

Jeff, it's been far too long since I last had the book in hand, alas. And those pigs do definitely have the same sort of blissed-out calm-and-accepting expression as the frogs did. I think the illustration may have come on the very last page, after the second "Tuesday at ..." with the pig shadow on the barn.

Did either of you notice that, in one of the pictures (puzzled people, at least one in his pyjamas, on the street talking with the police), the clouds in the background are frog-shaped? :)
