Which way? That way? Honestly?

Last week I put the beginning of my surrealist journey in your hands....catch up here if you missed it.

Into the random page generator (read bowl of bits of paper with numbers on) goes: 2, 100, 154.

 Sorry Tangled Lou and Paul, unfortunately there is no page 42 in the book...but I think you knew that Lou ;-)

And the winner is (I was never that great at holding the suspense) 100, picked by Tim Green on Twitter. Talented comic artist and also in need of your votes in a competition see here!

So, Page 100...

Flip forward 5 pages...gives me....

This is a Virtual Reality

1. Make a list of your personality traits

2. Take those traits and exaggerate or embellish them. Create a character (or avatar) with these traits as superpowers.

3. Create several superhero accessories  Examples: Her excellent organisational skills make her fully prepared for every potential crisis. He repels enemies with his love of garlic. She has a great ability to find things in messy spaces. He is a timing expert.

I don't think I could have picked a harder challenge to start my surrealist journey by myself, so thanks for this Tim. Not so challenging in terms of defacing books, yet probably the hardest task in the book for me. I have to find positives in my personality!!

Wish me luck ;-)

And seeing as it is still Tuesday there must be a tune....excuse for a little Stereophonics anyone??

What are your superhero traits? And do you have a cape??


  1. I'm really intrigued by this book. Can't wait to read what you come up with!

    1. Intriguing and addictive, two perfect words to describe Kerri's books! Just wait till I get my hands on the Gorilla Art Kit bwahahahaha!

  2. At night I'm a powerful do-gooder, strong and kind, wise and witty. I save people from imminent danger, and then whisk away into shadow.

    In the morning, though, I'm the opposite. A powerful villain, strong but ferocious, calculating and cruel. I bring people down with the cutting edge of my glare, and then I just stand there to revel in my gruesome glory.

    That's why I'm usually the last to wake up in our household. Better to let the alter-ego sleep.

    1. We are so alike...however I would be more of a brain eating zombie, coffee is the only way to subdue that beast!! Definitely better to let the alter-ego's sleep in!!


Penny for your thoughts
