so it goes.

This is the outcome for our reading week brief, we had to illustrate a piece of text in anyway we saw fit. I chose to illustrate 'Slaughterhouse 5' by Kurt Vonnegut, as I'd just finished reading it so it was all fresh in my mind, it was also a fantastic book.

I chose to focus on two quotes in particular, which were;
'It is so short and jumbled and jangled, Sam, because there is nothing intelligent to say about a massacre. Everybody is supposed to be dead, to never say anything or want anything ever again. Everything is supposed to be very quiet after a massacre, and it always is, except for the birds. And what do the birds say? All there is to say about a massacre, things like “Poo-tee-weet?”’

'The curves were smooth only when seen from a distance. The people climbing over them learned that they were treacherous, jagged things -hot to the touch, often unstable- eager, should certain important rocks be disturbed, to tumble some more, to form lower, more solid curves.
Nobody talked much as the expedition crossed the moon. There was nothing appropriate to say. One thing was clear: Absolutely everybody in the city was supposed to be dead, regardless of what they were, and anybody that moved in it represented a flaw in the design. There were to be no moon men at all.'

This is what I got:
