    A GK Chesterton quote I came across in John Barrow's "Impossibility" (The Science of Limits and the Limits of Science.)

    This describes so accurately how I have always felt... (and why I'm a scientist and not a poet.)

    Update: ironically, I had only seen the snippet quoted in the book I mention above. This image was linked on a blog which revealed the full quote was not actually about scientists, but critics, which puts rather a different spin on it!

      Chesterton is great. Have you read much of his stuff? Great illustration too.

      these are really incredible - are you showing them anywhere other than flickr? they definitely deserve to be seen!

      Thank you!

      We were supposed to be starting a zine to showcase them - The Guild of Further Art, but that seemed to get stalled after Volume 1, after I got made redundant from my job.

      Any chance for a higher res? Those colours are disgustingly beautiful.
