Cheshire Saint


...And the saint spoke to them, saying "All, all, all are mad, all things that crawl upon the earth or swim upon the waters, all creatures that draw breath, all are mad and there is no sane one among them." And the people hearing this were sorely vexed and there was no tea to console them.

In this case, I am not sure we are using the word Saint in the same way...

That would depend upon which deity he's a saint of surely?


Definitely, absolutely, positively Discordian.

Hail Eris!... and her avatar Alice.

Would that the people had patience with madness, for then they would see that the heart of the saint bears the pot, and from the throat of the saint comes the tea.

...this is marvelous, and it ought to be embroidered on something. I'm serious.

She put in in the art! I am just noticing it. :)

No, No, No... good, thinking, headslaps.


If you meet the Cheshire on the road, grin back. **sound of a distant, ethereal gong**

I like the little teapot necklace.

Become one with the smile.

eeeeeeeeeee, LOVE the cheshire saint! <3 <3 <3

Cheshire's eyelids look like teacups.

I think he is gorgeous. Oddly enough he is right, we're all mad in our own ways. :¬D

As my dear departed mother would have it...

"All the world's queer, save thee and me; and even thee's a little queer..."

Oh, and gorgeous detail in it!

One should never be vexed without conciliatory tea.

As a longtime fan of the Cheshire, and Alice, and a big fan of your artwork, this picture makes me squee. :) Totes adore! And will have to see about getting me a print as soon as I can afford one!

I definitely have the covets.

OK silly question. Does the print come with the quote at the bottom or something? I would mat and frame anyway so I could always add it to the matting but... inquiring minds want to know!


That sounds almost like a quote from Lavondyss...and the picture and quote are beautiful together.

Eeeeee! Love this painting, but I love the caption even better! Have you listened to Cheshire Kitten by SJ Tucker? It fits this piece very well (can't post a link without getting marked as spam, but a simple google search will get you there :)
