Mer bart... gjett novellen... vinn fin tegning...

WE HAVE A WINNER!! The correct answer was.... "Pickmans Model" by H.P. Lovecraft.


Siden jeg i trøtt tegnerus sa at den som gjetter hvilken novelle jeg adapterer til tegneserieform skal få en tegning, så må jeg nesten utlyse det som en ekte konkurranse. Så førstemann som greier å navngi hvilken novelle dette er skal få en veldig fin blekk- og penseltegning. Tegningen er ikke ferdig ennå, men den kommer til å bli ferdig i løpet av de neste ukene. Har idéen klar. Og... ikke for å være en pikk, men modellen for slike konkurranser er selvsagt at det skal ta noe kunnskap, så hvis du googler dialogen så er du diskvalifisert. Jeg stoler på din ærlighet, og mine klarsynte evner.

Teksten over har et skjult, men DIGERT hint om hvilken novelle det er.

Så, siden jeg har i alle fall et par engelskspråklige som sjekker bloggen en gang i blant:

I´m adapting a short-story to comic-book form, and since I in this post promised whoever guesses the story will get a nice brush and ink drawing based on the story, I thought I´d make something of a half-proper contest out of it. So if anyone manages to guess the short-story, without googling the dialogue, shout out and I´ll send you a drawing in a couple of weeks time(The drawing isn´t finished yet, you see). I´m counting on your honesty and my psychic abilities, so don´t try to cheat.

Og så... Denne serien er stort sett en "talking-head"-tegneserie, og jeg tegner oppå fotografier av meg selv, så har jeg bart nå, som vist tidligere. Men de bildene jeg har vist på fleisbok er fra fotosesjonen til serien. Så jeg tenkte at jeg nesten måtte laste opp et bilde av hvordan jeg ser ut til vanlig nå, og hvordan jeg må se ut fram til jeg har tegnet nok av ansiktene i serien til at jeg vet ikke trenger fler bilder. Ja, folk smiler mye mer mot meg enn for bare noen dager siden. Rart...

And then... as an addendum... Since this is a largely talking-head-comic, and I´ve chosen to for the first time experiment with drawing on top of photographies for the main character, and since I´m the only model I have around right now.... I have to wear a mustache now. There´s some images from the photosession uploaded to my facebook-account, but none of how I actually go around looking right now. So I decided to upload one image here. And yes, people smile at me much more these days. Weird...

Hmmmm... Det er ikke tilfeldigvis "The Telltale Heart" i meget fri tolkning? Det var det jeg umiddelbart tenkte på.

DUHH said...

Godt forsøk, men dessverre ikke rett.:(

Min adapsjon av den ukjente novellen kommer til å være veldig trofast, forresten. Den eneste jeg forandrer på er at jeg kutter litt tekst for å få det inn på 16 sider.

Må du lizzom vere så vanskeleg? Du veit at eg er analfabet og ikkje les noveller! :-P

DUHH said...

Men denne serier er laget for analfabeter som deg, slik at dere kan lese litterære klassikere bare ved å se på de fine bildene!!!

(Og jeg mistenker at du har lest denne novellen, selvom min gullfiskhukommelse forhindrer at jeg kan si noe sikkert).

Mad Mullah Hastur said...

Ei novelle eg har lest? Så den er enten av Dick eller Lovecraft? ;-P

DUHH said...

Når jeg blir pornostjerne skal jeg hete Dick Lovecraft.

It´s not Turn the Screw, but I do think we have a winner. You just need to provide the correct title.

And I picked it because it´s one of the least spuernatural stories of Lovecraft, it´s about art, and it´s all in dialogue-format(Or actually monologue, since the other voice is just implied). And I actually do think it will become a decent comic. At least it´s worth a shot.

DUHH said...

Oh, and I mostly picked it because Lovecraft-comics are usually really god dmaned awfull, so the competition isn´t that hard... ;)

Arnfinn Pettersen said...

Dick Lovecraft? Jeg skal bli Love Dickcraft. Ingen anelse om hvilken novelle.

Jimmy said...

oops I just deleted my last comment...I meant to edit it to say that after googling turn of the screw I realized it was wrong....but i deleted it....my comment guessed that it seemed like an HP Lovecraft but that you don't usually do supernatural stuff...

so maybe a robert pickman...hmmmm

DUHH said...

Love Dickcraft er heller ikke ille, nei. Craft Lovedick?

(PS! Satan så mye stavefeil i kommentarene mine i dag)

DUHH said...

Jimmy... Do you often delete your guesses if you find out they´re wrong? Is it to avoid ridicule and taunting by mean guys on the internets, Jimmy-Joe?

But.... anyhow... Robert Pickman isn´t the correct title. Give us the correct title, Jimmy-Joe, and I´ll send you a nice, nice drawing as soon as it´s done.

Jimmy said...

I just found it you Dick Loveshaft!

Pickman's Model....Richard Upton Pickman, the super weird artist guy.

Jimmy said...

and YEP i do tend to avoid ridicule...turn of the screw wasn't even written in the right century...how dumb!

Jimmy said...

just for some trivia (since i have this cool annotated lovecraft book):

Pickman is an old Salem name. Nathaniel Pickman (c.1615-85), a native of Bristol, England, settled there in 1639. AJohn Upton purchased land in Salem in 1658.

DUHH said...

Congratulations! You are a winner! And winners don´t get ridicule, they get..... beat up for being so damned obnoxious! Grrrr....

(Oh, and they get a drawing too. Of which I´ll post some updates on here on the blog until it´s sent. Today it´s out to buy nice paper for the drawing, since the ones I had were either too rough or too smooth. I´m kind of like Goldielocks that way)

DUHH said...

Oh, and thanks for the Trivia. I guess those famillies are cursing Lovecrat for slandering their name.

DUHH said...

Lovecrat?

I really wrote Lovecrat?

Mad Mullah Hastur said...

"I´m kind of like Goldielocks that way"

Not just in that way, my sweet little man ;-)

DUHH said...

Tihi-hihi... You big flirtatious bear, you....

Jimmy said...

funny you say that....You always reminded me Goldielocks, especially with that mustache.

what do you mean obnoxious?

btw you could have deleted your misspelling...I once knew a guy who did that...But that was the start of the path from human to not quite human, almost dog like...that is the risk you take by deleting...etiher that or taunting by meanie blogger guys...Do you like dogs?

Anonymous said...

Ganske sikker på at dette er en Lovecraft novelle, men husker ikke navnet. Skal sjekke biblioteket og knekke denne, bare vent..
Stine

DUHH said...

Jim: I like dogs once in a while, but I prefer a good broiled human infant in a béchamel sauce... hmmm...

Stine: For sent, Jim greide allerede det. Skal oppdatere slik at det står i posten.

Nikko said...

Så spennende! En av mine yndlingsnoveller også! Gleder meg til å se resultatet, Kim!

DUHH said...

Skal prøve å leve opp til forventingnene. ;)

Jimmy said...

mmmm...must be very tender with the béchamel sauce...Personally I prefer Alfredo sauce...but you know us Dagoes always adding parmesan to everything!

DUHH said...

I´m no sauce-nazi, and love a touch of parmesan.

You know, variety is the spice of life, just like spice is the spice of food, and spice, or in this case: cheese, can add variety to food.

So I say go for it! The most important thing is that we eat up all the infants before they take over the world!

Jimmy said...

A Modest Proposal: For Preventing the Children of Poor People in Ireland from Being a Burden to Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Public, by Jonathan Swift (1700s)--

If you haven't read it, read it and you will laugh while you eat the babies of the world.

Quick there's an infant coming at you from the left! Get your parmesan loaded!

DUHH said...

Will read. Always good to have something interesting to read while eating lunch. Yummy, yummy, babies tummy.

Mad Mullah Hastur said...

It's one of my personal favourites. Kiddedinner! Yum!

DUHH said...

Yup.

Men... Hvorfor i all verden kan jeg ikke komme forbi ordbekreftelsen når jeg skal poste på bloggen din?

Har mer sjokkerende info om snikislamiseringen i dataspill: Snikislamisering, bokstavelig talt.

Igjen et Nintendolisensiert spill. Tilfeldig? Tror ikke det, nei.

Mad Mullah Hastur said...

Fleire har hatt problem.

Det er lokalt på maskinene dykkar, klarar tydlegvis ikkje scriptet til blogger/blogspot. Eg skrur av ordbekreftinga og ser kva som skjer.

DUHH said...

Det er litt merkverdig, for det funket ypperlig fram til i går. Hmmm..
