Design, Direction and Doodles... Couscous Kid is the work of Mathew Thomas, illustrator and designer based in Bath, UK. Mathew's illustrations lie somewhere between the cutting edge of the new breed in contemporary illustration and the tempting nipple of naive. Impossible to pigeon-hole, Couscous Kids' dream-like and innocent style leads us dancing eerily among the childlike leaves we cling onto through life to a deeper and darker space. A timeless place where fantasy and fairy tale doodles combine with intrigue, mystery and sex. At first glance all is as it seems with hints of sixties abandon, but closer inspection reveals a 21st century humour and physical freedom hidden among the sublime and ridiculous forms and characters.

Harley is cute, Emma is actually wearing more than usual and probably has an outfit exactly like that stashed for formal occasions. And Catwoman, YES that's so much closer than the crap she wears now. That's something Selina would actually wear, not that riot-grrl thing.

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. He represents loyalty, friendship, and perseverance in hard times.
