Ooggley Baloobley

Welcome to the land of Ooggley Baloobley - a small planet some distance away from the one where Yoda used to live - but with longer daylight hours and less green slime.

It's a strange place for sure with an atmosphere of jelly and custard. The climate is mild, though when this picture was taken they had just suffered a blueberry soda pop storm causing flooding in the Boogleploops. The creatures that live here adapted well to their surroundings and built an ingenious network of pipes, stripes and wriggle holes to protect them from the smothering effects of a custard atmosphere. Crystal windows reflect the rainbow jelly colours so decorating is not necessary which is probably just as well since they have yet to invent the paint brush. They have very large tongues which poke out of their homes to lick up jelly lunches. They have no teeth to rot so excessive sugar consumption is not a problem.

The only activity that keeps them away from their favourite hobbies of yodelling and seeing who can make the loudest squelching noise is the 'trifling' matter of sponge production which, when mixed with the atmosphere, a spot of cream from the blooper cows and some star sprinkles provides the planet with its security and protection. Be sure, that anyone trying to invade will receive their just desserts!

A spot of alien ingenuity for the Inspiration Avenue weekly challenge and more Art Every Day.

Watercolours, doodles and plenty of creative imagination!

  17. I'm in total awe of your storytelling AND your art. I've heard you are a great storyteller (SHH, Cheryl would not like me to tell), and now I have proof. Love both the story and the colorful, creative, and ingenious art.

  18. Oh dear. I think I need to find a bigger tongue before I visit there. I wonder if anyone has invented Viagra for tongues?!

    (I mean that in the most innocent way! I mean, with all that custard and jelly and all, I'm sure they don't put up with any tomfoolery.)
