A recent piece, part of a series of exercises I've been working on that look at adapting classics from other media into comic form, while avoiding the obvious route.

I've taken Lewis Carroll's nonsense poem "Jabberwocky", which he composed largely of imaginary words - arguably in an attempt to keep the reader guessing as to what he was on about, and force them to engage in their own interpretation.

The narrator here hasn't got a clue what he's on about, and manages to convey something of the impression the poem's made on him, while completely and utterly failing to describe the poem itself.

The model for this character is Microsoft's outgoing CEO Steve Ballmer, who has wonderfully over-the-top hand gestures and body language when he's presenting on stage.
