If these two were left alone probably
  • Oberon: How are things going between you and Thorn?
  • Chise: Pretty good, Oberon...why do you ask?
  • Oberon: Just wondering! I've noticed you two are finally sleeping together now.
  • Chise: Uh, yeah...?
  • Oberon: Which reminds me! How are those kids of yours coming along?
  • Chise: !?!?!?
  • Chise: W-what are you talking about?
  • Oberon: You see, Titania and I have bet a lot on when you two are going to-

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine: There sleeps Titania sometime of the night, Lull’d in these flowers with dances and delight; And there the snake throws her enamell’d skin, Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in: And with the juice of this I’ll streak her eyes, And make her full of hateful fantasies. ~ A Midsummer Night’s Dream Act II Scene I

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania sometime of the night..”

Frank Cadogan Cowper (1877–1958, England)

Paintings 2

Frank Cadogan Cowper was an English painter and illustrator of portraits, historical and literary scenes, and can reasonably be described as the last of the Pre-Raphaelites.

His career began after the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood had broken up, and the core artists had largely abandoned the style, but despite a style that was seen as deeply regressive at the time, Cowper was able to produce several works of great inspiration. His style is indebted to Millais and Rossetti, and indeed, his finest works can be compared to models by the previous two artists. Additionally, his portraiture can at times recall Waterhouse, as with his painting The Patient Griselda.

My image for the Falmouth Illustration quotes book… I think it’s done. My favourite part was cutting out each and every individual animal and leaf to do the background. ‘There sleeps Titania…’
