“Thompson’s Mystery Mammal”
In 1835, William Thompson, member of the Belfast Natural History Society and well known “swell guy” got really drunk and fell asleep in the street. He was woken up by a strange creature that was sniffing his face. At first, he thought it was a cat, . . . but its head was too big. It was neither cat or dog, but appeared to have features from both animals. When he got up, the animal got up on its hind legs and walked away like a middle aged man who was late for work, . . . with its chin up and its arms swaying with purpose . It was all very strange. He tried to tell his friends at the society. They did not believe him as the smell of alcohol on his breath made them skeptical. As he was trying to describe what he saw, it walked right by them with that same brisk gait. They attempted to followed it, but it sprinted away. There continued to be sightings of this unusual being walking upright through the city for many years after. Some of the people who saw it, began mimicking its walk with great hilarity.
In an alternate universe, I imagine “A Christmas Carol” performed by beings that resemble elder gods & spirits. This is Cthulhu Bob Cratchit on display in my show at KP Projects Gallery until Nov4th if you’re in the Los Angeles area, stop by and pay him a visit
