  Excuse me, is this the way to Exeter?

Our Indian spiritual advisor is here trying to help us sort some things out. There was a momentary scare when the full english vegetarian breakfast almost derailed her - we've all been there - the big plate of beans and stewed tomatoes that looks up at you at 8am with a bit of a mocking grin. Too much gin?

More sketchings from terminals, transit and daymares:

Sometimes these things just happen.

Was going through some 'footage'.....

this came up just as I was listening to Zoviet France in the background.

Sometimes it feels so right you just have to go with it.

I hope they don't mind.

Sketch Book Capers:


Remember the good times we had?  




Indeed, we made it out of the tunnels in one piece, if not slightly mentally tweeked for the rest of our mortal lives.

If any derelict infrastructure rats out there are going to be in Kent and don't know about these holes drop us a mail and we'll help pinpoint.

Two ways in.
No way out.


You first.

Watch your step.

Uh...why are we doing this again?



We just dumb that way.




begin descent.


C'mon man, you gotta come down.

It's crazy down here.

I think I saw your mom.

Uhhh...what was in that cup of tea you gave me?


But if I fall don't let mom see me.

You forge on ahead.

I'll bring the Devil 'round the other way

and meet you halfway there.

End of the line?

Hello? Hello? Mayday! Can anyone hear us? We're lost underground.........

I was going to do a bit about being trapped underground but then realized that there's a whole lot of people truly buried beneath rubble right now in China. There but for the grace of geography go I.

Near-suffocation by choice. Flirting with tetnus. In a place built to withstand bombings and beach invasions. Either mother earth herself will come down on you or your brothers will.

The ubiquitous shaky ground.

Of existence.
