Little Red Hat

We all know the story of "Little Red Riding Hood", right? WRONG! No, you know the tamed edition which is nice and child friendly where Red escapes with the help of a friendly woodcutter, and they manage to cut Grandma out of the wolf's stomach and everyone lives happily ever after. Well...while the Brothers Grimm... Continue Reading →

Sun, Moon and Talia

As a kid (and to an extent, still today) I loved disney movies, although not overly the ones with Princesses in... I know I drove my brother to distraction watching "The Jungle Book" and I loved watching "The Fox and the Hound" with my Dad. As soon as you start to venture into Princess territory...

The Pied Piper of Hamelin

In the weird story game, Europe has to be up there in the top 5, which is probably what made it so easy for the Brothers Grimm to collect so many creepy and totally dark tales of people being either completely manic or mistreated. This is not to say that other cultures don't have such... Continue Reading →

Snow White

I find it amusing how simple and compliant the heroines in stories can be sometimes.  Some of them have been through horrible things, but don't appear to have trust issues of any sort.  They appear to walk blindly into traps, and hope by the grace of God that there is a man around to help...

Rapunzel

I often talk about the importance of understanding stories, culture and history as a key to understanding art and films.  It gives you a firm grounding to use applied knowledge and link subjects together that are comparable.  Folk/fairy stories serve a purpose to deliver a moral and to entertain.  Many of the tales we tell...

Film – The Lighthouse

Have you ever watched something, and immediately wanted to watch it again?   This film was exactly that for me.  It is so rich in symbolism and so dense with nods to other stories, elements and film productions that it really get the brain ticking.  It is a film that sucks you and a leaves you...

Maui – Bobby Holcomb

You know, Disney has a lot to answer for in the mutilating a story stake...I am not talking about your "Dumbos" or "Bambis", more things like..."Pocahontas" and "The Hunchback of Notre Dam" where they butcher either history or a well written story to present a cutesy happy ending, when in reality it wasn't quite so. ...

The Creation of Adam – Michelangelo

Did you know that the fear of belly buttons is called omphalophobia?  I can't really imagine being afraid of, what is essentially a scar which reminds you of your own creation, but I don't like people on stilts, so each to their own. Michelangelo, was a bit of a rock star of art, having the... Continue Reading →

Mitra – Luke Hillestad

Peacocks are beautiful aren't they.  I have recently had one tattooed on my leg as there is so much symbolism that surrounds them, they are vain and showy, but also deemed as royalty and a protector because of the association with with Hera from Greek mythology.  When I saw this picture I was obviously drawn...
