On a recent visit to Haw Par Villa in Singapore I was delighted to find this little orb:
The gardens are a three dimensional graphic novel with portrayals of Chinese classics (like the Journey to the West) rendered in painted concrete dioramas. Originally built by the Haw Brothers, who made their fortune inventing Tiger Balm, it is now a little sad and desolate. Here are a couple more pictures for your delectation and delight:

Autumn is slowly arriving and the beach vendors have packed up their trampolines and swings, so it must be time to start thinking about the next Adventure.
The title for our two page comic is “The Orb” and that is about all there is to the rules (though I will publish some guidance this year about delivery formats, etc.)
Here is an Orb that I saw recently in Deal, Kent. The Time Ball signals to ships when it is midday in Greenwich – the ball drops at 12 noon everyday and all the ships anchored off the coast can adjust their shiny new chronometers accordingly before setting off to the other side of the world.
Hmmm – just noticed that WordPress wants to show ads on this page. Apologies if this is annoying. I will look into changing things.
Until next time.
