Craig Paton Illustration Richard Dadd: Masterpieces of the asylum - Features - Art So when he started behaving erratically in the last leg of the 10-month trip, his increasingly bizarre behaviour and the outlandish assertion that he was acting under the influence of the Egyptian god Osiris was dismissed as an acute case of sunstroke. We now know it was the start of delusional episodes and psychotic behaviour that culminated in murder on 29 August 1843, when he lured his father, Robert Dadd, to a park in Kent, and stabbed him to death. He fled by boat to France, in such a confused and manic state that he later said he was on his way to assassinate Ferdinand I, Emperor of Austria. He was arrested after attacking a French passenger with a razor and brought back to England. It was this troubled night, on 30 August 1843, that was to be his last as a free man. He spent the rest of his years incarcerated, until his death in 1886. Dadd's life is now being revisited with a book, a play and an exhibition. Yet despite his condition, he continued to paint with vigour.

The Haven for Scofflaws, Roustabouts, and Ne-er-do-wells: Search results for yoo hoo This is my cat Skeletor, or "Skelly" as he's commonly called. As you can see, he is a great lover of literature. I post this picture of him because he's awesome and also because I include him as a recurring character in lots of my stories. In "Finnigan's Last Resort", Skelly is a companion and friend to the main character. In my stories, I use him as a device to connect the audience with the happenings of the story. This scene below depicts the main character on his surreal journey out of the grey world of depression and loss toward a more primal and basic land full of strange and almost mythical things. But amidst all this, Skelly, the cat is showing a concern for his friend as this journey takes place. Made in Adobe Illustrator and then colored in Photoshop.
