Hello and please make yourselves comfortable. Max and I would like to welcome you all to our newest page, Mary Morgan's very own S'N'Art! Gallery (abbreviated version of It's Not Art!). Here you will find many of the drawings I've discovered during my research into the mysterious Sorceress Mary Morgan who was first introduced to our world in Buggy Crenshaw and the Bungler's Paradox.
It may interest you to know that by the time Buggy met Mary Morgan, the Witch was in fact a very old woman (197, I believe)...However, I have since uncovered evidence that indicates otherwise! I cannot say more here without crossing the bounds into forbidden territory: some things belong solely to the realm of the Buggy Crenshaw adventures and it is only proper that she tells the tales.
Now, before you set off on this sight-seeing adventure, allow me this brief reminder that you are free (and encouraged) to comment or email me about these offerings. You are not free, however, to wander off these premises with any images without permission. I don't much care if you do so as long as you let me know, don't use them for your own gain, and of course, give credit where due. Gaining the approval for such a matter is really quite easy: simply ask (and, of course, use the magic word). I'm really quite reasonable about such things...In fact, you may simply click on that lovely purple envelope over there to your right and it will present to you an email form on which you may scribble whatever you like. Questions, comments, or even suggestions: they are all welcome.
And, so, without further ado, I present to you the S'N'Art work of Mary Morgan, complete with a brief description as well as the title of the post in which the images are featured if they have yet been. (Consider these extra pix a teeny weeny sneak preview as to what's coming in future posts. Subscribe and you'll be among the first to known when!)
This lovely [thing] here is a watership known specifically as The Valiant Voyager.
(Post: Outright Steampunkery!)
Not much is yet known about this fellow, except that he is what's known as a Sea Devil (a very broad term that covers a wide variety of unknown species). You are very likely to hear more of this fellow in the near future...
(Post: A Peculiar Find)
This ruggedly handsome guy is called Detritous Clax and since his first appearance here, he's become quite popular. (And not just with the ladies!)
(Posts: A Most Curious Affair! and Detritous Clax)
Here, we have a Stickler who is also unnamed, although we would be wise to suspect that he may very well be one of the three who eventually "helped" Buggy Crenshaw in Buggy Crenshaw and the Deadwood Principle: Revolution!
(An excellent book, by the way, and highly recommended reading!)
(Post: Mary Morgan's Logbook)
Above, we have that toothy talon, the...(hmmm)...tentacle, we'll say, and the hand with two thumbs...none of which we presently know much about, but we remain on constant alert to discover more as we dig further through the vast heaps of Mary Morgan's journals and belongings that have been left behind (in some of the oddest places!) during her adventurous travels.
(Post: Mischief and Misfortune!)
As for this fellow and the one below....D'Evil Dogs! I prefer not to dwell on either, beings that these mutts are very hard to be rid of once you gain their attention.
However! I will label them...let's see, how about Hell Hound (for the one above) and D'Evil Dog for this lovely pup alongside? (Keep reading to learn why labels are required here.)
(Post: D'Evil Dogs & Mysterious Blogs)
All righty, let's take a quick break and a poll! (See? Labels!) Feel free to check any and all that you like, and then click VOTE! I will share the results in a week or so...
There now, that wasn't so awful, was it? Thank you very much for your participation. And, now, back to our S'N'Arts...(hmmm)...The drawings that follow will be included in another poll after a few more colorful ones have been posted. In the meantime, you may still comment or email about any drawing at any time.
This, of course, is Scallywag Jack, an ally from a long way back. He is featured briefly in my book Magpie & Dilly as part of an invisible network of valiant Warriors who fight on behalf of the Greater Good.
(Post: Yikes! and Double Yikes!)
Here's another interesting fellow...According to what's written on the drawing, his name is Finneus Plight, and from what little we have so far discovered about him, we know he and Mary Morgan were good friends.
(Post: Yikes! and Double Yikes!)
And now here, from our latest complete post, is Epitimous Dorsey, a pyromander, we're told. As interesting as this [creature] looks, something even more interesting is how quickly she escaped us when I unwittingly offered her the opportunity. (Be on the lookout, please...I hear she's quite friendly when in her own environment, but spooks easily outside it and has a fiery temper!)
(Post: Escapist Extraordinaire!)
And, finally, a couple of newcomers:
For now, I'll say no more than this fellow's name: Halting Paux (pronounced Poe, as in Edgar Allen).
And, here we have a creature who was identified in an early post as the Grym. I've since discovered this is not THE Grym that terrorized Mary Morgan. Of course, there will be more in a later post.
This handsome devil here is named Parsimonious Creed, but for now, that's all I can say for him. You will see this rascally fellow again very soon!
There you are! Welcome to this first official update of our S'N'Art Gallery where some of the Sorceress Mary Morgan's drawings are on display. I sincerely hope you enjoy viewing the pieces previously presented, but I am especially excited to offer the following photographs that I discovered hidden away along with the Sorceress' drawings.
Many of you will already be familiar with some of the photos, beings that most of the digitally enhanced versions have been offered here at Ponderous Things in recent posts. Until now, however, none of the originals have been seen by anyone in this world except me. (Hence my childlike giddiness!)
Please allow yourself ample time to examine these photographs and if you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to email me or simply post a comment. Afterward, of course, you should first pop over to your right and click the Join This Site button so that I'll know you've enjoyed your stay here. And then, please go immediately and tell all your friends and family members to visit here promptly so that they may also partake in the wonderment of Mary Morgan's bounty.
And so, without further delay, here are the original and enhanced versions of a photo of Millicent Manly, currently an inmate at Bartleby's Hollow Maximum Security Internment Facility for the Criminally Insane:
Next we have the Deviant Mortimer Kilsmore, a fellow inmate...And who can forget that exceptionally tricky Deviant Solomon Sleekwood? Solo is, of course, another fellow inmate at Bartleby's...
And next, we have none other than Jinga, the Master of Pain! What an extraordinary Warrior for the Greater Good of Mankind, wouldn't you say? That gigantic nail through his neck is indeed proof of Jinga's mastery, eh?
And last (for now), but indeed very far from the least, please meet Madame Zoetricious Bovari, or simply Madame Zoey to her friends. She, like Jinga, seems to have been a stalwart ally to the Sorceress Mary Morgan, although as with all these subjects, I am certain there is a great deal more yet to learn!
And so, there you have it: actually a very small sampling of the treasures I've come across while studying Mary Morgan's journals. Trust that a great deal more is in store for you should you decide to come back and bring your friends. (It would be a very good idea to subscribe, or at the very least, click that Join This Site button!)
Another excellent idea...If you truly do wish to know more about Mary Morgan or the world where she resides, consider investing in Buggy Crenshaw and the Bungler's Paradox. Also, my most recent novel Magpie & Dilly is set in that world and is actually a prequel to the Buggy Crenshaw books (and sort of "spooky" I hear..) Also, you would be wise to stay tuned here at Ponderous Things as I continue work on a project I call simply "Mary Morgan's Journal." More on that another time...
One last note: I will likely be adding to Mary Morgan's S'N'Art Gallery in a month or two as I continue to sort through the Sorceress' belongings. Until that time, enjoy what you see, feel free to comment or email, and by all means, come back again and again. Nothing to be afraid of here....Or is there?! YIKES!
