Wocky Jivvy: Poetry and Art "When the flush of a new-born sun fell first on Eden's green and gold,
Our father Adam sat under the Tree and scratched with a stick in the mould;
And the first rude sketch that the world had seen was joy to his mighty heart,
Till the Devil whispered behind the leaves, "It's pretty, but is it Art?"
from Rudyard Kipling's The Conundrum of the Workshops

divider line and nothing more

"But the Devil whoops, as he whooped of old: `It's clever, but is it Art?'"*

In the interest of making these images available for viewing to a wider range of peoples, the expanded images are much smaller than the original art and some details have been lost (in certain cases, the original images were as much six times the size as are found here)... however, vanity has gotten the better of us with the piece titled 20 Years -- it does not reduce well and so we have posted it here in all of it's 800 X 600 (212KB) glory.

We do beg your indulgence and understanding.
