About the design
on October 21, 2010
'The Absurd Balloon' or 'Le Ballon Absurde' was something I imagined upon during the summer on holiday in the Scottish borders. I chanced upon a stunning photograph of a Muskox in a newspaper and instantly felt the urge to draw it. Then gradually the fantastical vision of the great hairy beast sailing silently through the clouds formed in my mind's eye and has been with me ever since. I may have to go see a doctor about it as it happens...
And that was that. I've been playing around with a narrative for the The Absurd Balloon for the last few weeks but felt the urge to introduce it to a wider audience. Enjoy!
