Well i've not been drawing too much, as my brother has been ill and I can't take all my pens back to my parents! But I have been looking at Hark, A Vagrant! pretty much obsessively, and I found a cartoon on one of Kate Beaton's affiliated sites that I thought rather captured my own creative process. Just substitute philosophical for historical, and the admiral guy for some dude in a toga.
I might try and get on twitpic soon, when I can make more than one cartoon a week!

You can read about the Communist Manifesto here, or better still read it in full here (it's not very long). That second site (www.Marxists.org) is a wonderful site with loads of texts by a range of different socialist and marxist theorists. Which reminds me, stay tuned for the next Being & Tim featuring Alvin, Simon and Theodor Adorno as the Chipmunks....!

In the Tractatus-Logico-Philosophicus, the book where the young Wittgenstein claimed to solve all the problems of philosophy, he includes the following elliptical remark:
I bet he did throw like a girl though.

Being Ready-at-hand is one of Martin Heidegger's words to describe the way we interact with the world and what better way to commemorate it than with a visual pun!
Also I thought I'd experiment with shades of grey: initially this way because I thought it'd be quicker, but now I just think it looks a bit more stylised...
Another thing I have been enjoying is the most excellent historical comic Hark a Vagrant! Go and have a look!
Once again Happy New Year, I'm saying it every day until tomorrow, when I guess it stops being socially appropriate.becca xo

Hello and Happy New Year from Being & Tim! Sorry if there have been a few problems with the site over the last few days: too much mulled wine, and general technological incompetency! The ''exciting'' news is that Being and Tim will soon have their very own domain. www.beingandtim.com, but this blogspot address will still work fine.
Truly exciting stuff.
