"The jaws that bite the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!", And now each night and all night long Over those plains still roams the Dong; And above the wail of the Chimp and Snipe You may hear the squeak of his plaintive pipe, While ever he seeks but seeks in vain To meet with his Jumbly Girl again; Lonely and wild - all night he goes - The Dong with a luminous Nose!
Feast your peepers upon the work of Ellen Jewitt. She creates creatures from other worlds, other dimensions perhaps, melding the beauty of the animal form with that of fauna and mechanical to great effect. I am quite wild about these, and though I like them all very much, I have to lean towards the Turtle and the Frog as my personal favourites. Her website can be accessed by clicking on her name above and it is well worth a visit should you wish to see more.
