Strange Looking Bloke Wednesday

Click image to enlarge
It's a guest Strange Looking Bloke today, courtesy of illustrator and animator Matthew Harding who tells us:

"It’s a portrait of Guto Bathroom Cabinet ap Llewelyn-Griffith, a kindly gent and diminutive one-time amateur American footballer who gave me my first job as a referee over the whelk wrestling on the beach at Builth Wells.  Although I remain indebted to his generosity, I concede that on occasion, from some angles and in a certain light he could possibly be considered slightly strange looking.  Who among us is perfect though?"

You can find more of Matthew's work at and also at 

Many thanks to Matthew for his suitably strange looking bloke.

Another poem

Here's another one from my short series of short poems. It makes the previous one seem positively verbose.
