The Neverland: A state of mind and of being (part 2)

In the films (and I will try not to let this turn into a bashing of the films), the Neverland has no dream-like reality. It's only existence is this other existence which I am trying to define in relation to its reality as a state of mind. In the films, the Neverland is some sort of island, unbound by a planet, located somewhere in the galaxy;…

The Neverland: A state of mind and of being (part 1)

I decided, when I first thought of writing a series of blogs on Peter Pan, that I would save my favourite aspect of the book for this, the last blog I will write on the subject. This element, the one which engages me like no other in the entire work, is the concept of the "Neverland." It is, in my opinion, Barrie's most…

The Boy Who Never Grew Up: Peter Pan as tragic hero

It is a common thing for people to hear the story of Peter Pan and Neverland and to think that they, too, never want to grow up. But this conception, I think, is drawn from a misunderstanding of the story, for which we can probably blame Disney and Hollywood. There is nothing happy about Peter Pan. There is no happy ending to J.M. Barrie's novel. There are minor triumphs…

Peter Pan as Kiss: A Tale of Two Metaphors

In my last entry I said that my next post in the series would be about Peter's eternal youth. I lied. Kind of. I mean, there will be elements of that here, but if you are reading for "Peter as youth" only, I give you fair warning that you will be disappointed. I have selfishly decided to write this one first. Because I like it better. There, I said it. But I do still think it is fascinating, so I do hope you will forgive me if I bump Peter's youth to the next post, and in this one attempt…

Hey Brendan! This post comes in three parts:
1) I finally caught up on your Peter Pan blog and I all I can say is...Well done, sir. :]
2) I stumbled upon your Youtube page and the Neverland song is beyond epic. What are the chances I can own a copy of it??
3) Getting compared to Ethan Hawke is definately a good thing.
Bonus Part: I'm sorry all of the above parts are a little stalker-ish, but I feel like they had to said nonetheless. DFTBA

I sent you an email with the original sized file, it should be the right height and width so you wont have to tile it! Well it worked on my page anyway ^__^
At 6:31pm on November 25, 2010, Claire Fidz O'R said…
Haha! Glad you like it!!
Hmmmm thats strange, I looked up the sizes that it should be and when I tried it on my youtube channel it fit...hmmm....maybe photobucket resized it or something! I'll email it to you and if that doesn't work I'll have a go at resizing!! ^__^

Yo! I gave your youtube background a wee go this evening! It's just a little simple one with a cartoony-esque you on it!!

I can definitely work on it some more or go with another idea or whatever you want!! Let me know what you think!! ^__^

Heya!
I would definitely be up for doing something for your youtube channel and I'm seriously chuffed that you enjoy my artwork! Thankyou! What kind of thing were you thinking of and does it have to be in a certain format?

It's completely possible!! But, I'm grounded still, so getting online is sort of like escaping maximum security prison... XD

Hahaha - thank you! Allow me to say that your favorite book being Peter Pan makes me want to give you a Kel/Orange Soda embrace.
