For Inspiration Avenue the challenge is Creativity and Cats, and I've created Dezzy:

Dezzy - by Jez

Dezzy is an actor, and he thinks that's cool,
He learnt his acting skills at the Feline Drama School.

Just now he's in a movie with a wonderful part,
Being ugly and scary, with a very black heart.

So he looks very fierce, but when all's said and done,
He's not wicked at all - he's just having fun.

I hope that the So Artful Challenge team will not mind me submitting a second entry for their theme of Friendly Monsters, but it's such a fun theme that I wanted another go:

Rose - by Jez

She's a Camephant and her name is Rose,
Four Humps, twisty tail and an oversized nose.

Rose lives in the desert, as everyone knows,
Where the land is dry and nothing grows.

And she wears her boots wherever she goes -
She can't bear getting sand in between her toes!

Finally, Collage Obsession has an Open Theme this week, so I am showing a page from my sketchbook of my art mannikin Mervynn:


  1. Love your sense of humor and that you are as sharp as a tack!! Well done... my first comment got lost in cyber space!! Love the rhyming and your fun characters...your creativity never ceases to amaze me!! Good job my dear!

    Hugs Giggles

  2. Hello Jez, I love that you have made another Friendly Monster and so glad you like the theme, and I think Rose is just beautiful. I'm glad she has these nice boots to keep her feet free of sand, that's very important for a Camephant.
    I love your poem too.
    Dezzy seems to have taken to his part very well, he is quite frightening.

  3. Dezy is a gorgeous actor and I believe he is not really wicked but is only acting, ha-ha! Rose is a lady and of corse she want to keeps her toes cleen;) You have a wonderful artist friend Mervynn and YOU have great sense of humor, Jez!
    Hugs and happy weekend!
