The Garden of Delights by JesIdres The Garden of Delights by JesIdres
Discworld again! After reading Jingo and laughing for several minutes at this scenario, I had to draw the scene Carrot was alluding to:

'Mr. Wazir sells books on Widdy street, 'said Carrot. 'Only I asked him for some books on Klatch, you see, and one of the ones he gave me was 'The Perfumed Allotment, ot, The Garden of Delights'. And I didn't mind because the Klatchians invented gardens, sir, so I thought it might be a very useful cultural insight. Get inside the Klatchian mind, as it were. Only it, er, it... er... well it wasn't about gardening... er...' He started to blush. 'Yes yes, all right, bring it back of you like, 'said Mr. Wazir, looking a little derailed. 'I just thought you ought to know in case you hadn't... in case you sold.. well... it could shock the impressionable, you know, a book like that...' 'Yes fine-' 'Corporal Angua was so shocked she couldn't stop laughing,' Carrot went on.

I need to find Mr. Pratchett and complain- I can't read on the T anymore, the giggling causes the other passengers to look at me funny.

I particularly like Angua's expression here; I redrew it about 8 times to get it right. Carrot's face had to be redraw with my tablet in the computer when I realized it didn't have the right 'innocently confused' look that I figure Carrot wears 60 percent of the time.

I had originally wanted to draw the scene out of the Fifth Elephant with Carrot biting a lead wolf, but I gave up before I began.

Carrot and Angua are PTerry's. I only wished I owned them.

Hahaha! XD Poor Carrot...his facial expression is perfect! :) Angua's expression is also spot on. This is one of my many favourite scenes in Jingo. I still burst out laughing whenever I read this part.

This is really good! I know what it's like to be stared at for laughing out loud at a good book, my classmates are always giving me funny looks when I start giggling at break or form time, because Sir Terry Pratchett's books are always hilarious.

Could you draw the scence of Carrot dressing as "Mr Spuddy Face" alias "Herr Kartoffel", too?

"Wanna do that one! Wanna do that one too! That one looks like it tickles!"

"Angua, are you trying to tell me something?"

"Depends if you can take the hint, Luv!"

god!! that's one of my favorite moments from Jingo, although I think that book is made out of 100% win.

Those two are the best paring, I really adore them.

Great picture! It's been awhile since I've read that book, but now I'm going to be giggling all day remembering that scene

People have never looked at me funny while giggling on the T (but maybe it was cause I was on the Blue line and everyone knows people from Revere are nuts)

Y'see, I'm on the red line, usually during rush hour- with all the straight laced businessmen going to Alewife. Then I shock them and DON'T get off at MIT with the rest of the geeks, but continue onto Davis.

Ah, the Blue Line- People look at you really funny if they're not from around here and you tell them there's a train to Wonderland.

lol.. I got a little of everything I worked out in Watertown and lived in Revere (about a 1/4 mile from Wonderland) I took the red line and the green line nad then the blue line. My cousins old roomate lives in Davis. Nice area.

And I have the same problem, loads of people think I'm completely nuts because I tend to spend my free periods sitting alone in the corner of the library reading discworld and giggling away to myself like a loon.
Keep up the great C/A pics and fics (I'm loving locks and doors) :D

I dunno.... I mean, what would I get in return, besides the insatiable urge to write C/A lovey dovey PWP? And that would be bad- at least for my computer- the steam would surely do some damage....

hehehe. I'll see what I can do.
