Black and red and red and black

So, first off, apologies for my long absence from Drawbridge-- I've been crazy sick for crazy long. Feeling better though!

The first thing I thought of when I heard today's topic of "Red and Black" was checkers; the second thing I thought of was ancient Greek vase painting. Put the two together and...


  1. Yay!
    Other people posting!
    I hope Simon gets better soon too.

  3. basileus me, baby!

  4. Clever! Glad you're feeling better George!

  5. I think those vases were the ancient Greeks' versions of comics. George provides evidence!

  6. I'm fine, you must mean someone else. I was simply too lazy to post.
    Nice vase.
