IMDb Mini Biography By: Anonymous

Spouse
Deborra-Lee Furness (11 April 1996 – present) 2 children

Trivia
For Sunset Boulevard (as Joe Gillis), he won a Variety Club, a Mo and a Green Room Award as best male actor in a musical. He was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award in 1998 as Curly in the Royal National Theatre’s Oklahoma!.

Adopted a son, Oscar Maximillian Jackman, in May 2000 (b. 15 May 2000).

Met his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, while co-starring in the Australian TV series "Correlli" (1995).

Chosen as one of People magazine’s "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" 5 years in a row, 2000-2004.

He was one of the presenters at the 2002 Academy Awards, but says he’ll think twice about attending again. He says, "I slept for about an hour and I’d have liked a little bit of sushi to come down. There’ll be a lot of drunken parties back home and people betting and that’s usually what I’m at, so getting up there in a suit and talking for a little bit is kind of bizarre."

He sang "People Will Say We’re in Love" from "Oklahoma!" with Shirley Jones, when they reprised their respective roles of Curly and Laurie, at the opening of Fox Studios in Sydney.

He was a last-minute addition to the X-Men (2000) cast. Dougray Scott was originally cast as Wolverine, but Mission: Impossible II (2000) required two extra months of shooting.

According to the comic books, Wolverine stands 5-feet-3-inches in height. Jackman, who plays Wolverine, stands a whole foot taller than his character.

Has starred in four movies with Halle Berry: X-Men (2000), Swordfish (2001), X2 (2003), and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006).

He was nominated for a 1999 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for the 1998 season for Best Actor in a Musical for his role in "Oklahoma.".

Was offered the role of "Captain William Gordon" in The Rising: Ballad of Mangal Pandey (2005).

While filming Van Helsing (2004), he accidentally broke an extra’s hand.

Favorite curse word is "bullshit".

Voted one of "The 50 Most Beautiful People in the World" by People magazine [2003]

Named Best Actor in a Musical by Drama Desk in New York for his portrayal of Peter Allen in "The Boy From Oz" (April 2004).

Won Broadway’s 2004 Tony Award as Best Actor (Musical) for his portrayal of Australian singer/songwriter Peter Allen in "The Boy From Oz." Jackman also served as host for the televised ceremony for the American Theatre Wing’s annual Antoinette Perry (aka Tony) Awards in 2003, 2004, and 2005.

Before attending WAAPA (Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts), he did a year-long acting program called "The Journey" at the Actors Centre in Sydney.

His parents separated when he was 8. His mother then moved to England, leaving his father to raise him and his four siblings by himself in Australia.

In the X-Men movies, he plays Wolverine; in Van Helsing (2004), he goes after a monster called The Wolfman.

He is terribly near-sighted and has extremely blurry vision when he isn’t wearing contacts. Even when hosting the Tonys and "Saturday Night Live" (1975), Jackman memorized almost everything he had to say so he wouldn’t have to struggle to read.

His favorite food is sushi.

Once said in an interview with Jay Leno that he is a fan of the "Friday The 13th" film series, and he became an actor because he wanted to play Jason in one.

Favorite word is "panache."

Due to his committment to Van Helsing (2004), had to decline the offer to play Frank Castle in The Punisher (2004). Both films ended up receiving a "BOMB" rating from film critic Leonard Maltin.

Was listed as a potential nominee on the 2005 Razzie Award nominating ballot. He was listed as a suggestion in the Worst Actor category for his performance in the film Van Helsing (2004). However, he did not receive a nomination.

Expressed great fondness for the comic book character Superman. Ironically, Superman is owned by DC Comics, the rival company of Marvel Comics, which owns X-Men and Wolverine.

He admitted after X-Men (2000) that it was difficult to summon up the rage and darkness necessary for the character of Logan/Wolverine and it took weeks of work with Bryan Singer to find the right tone for the character. After that, however, it was relatively easy for him to play the angry character.

Has started his own movie-production company, Seed Productions, with his friend John Palermo. The first films they will be producing with this company are X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and the Wolverine spin-off.

Adopted a girl, Ava Eliot Jackman (b. July 10, 2005), in July 2005.

Was school captain during his final year of high school, a school also attended by Australian actors Adam Garcia, Andrew Johnston, Reg Livermore, and Hugo Weaving; writer Stuart Beattie; and radio host John Laws.

His two children have playtime sessions with Rupert Murdoch’s younger children in New York.

Had to take stunt-driving classes to prepare for his role in Swordfish (2001).

His stunt double for Van Helsing (2004) and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) was Richard Bradshaw, his brother-in-law (sister’s husband).

He had never seen an episode of "Saturday Night Live" (1975) until he agreed to host the show. The producers sent him tapes of episodes so he could understand the format of the show. He later said that his favorite was the one hosted by Conan O’Brien.

Often his wife and, sometimes, members of his family stay with him while he is shooting on location.

His mother abandoned the family when he was 8 and moved back to England. His father, an accountant, brought up five children himself. The first 18 months of Hugh’s life were spent with his godparents.

Doesn’t smoke in real life. He says he finds it horrible to smoke in movies.

Was among the guests at the wedding of Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban.

Wants to produce and star in a film based on the life of "The Incredible Hulk" (1978) actor Bill Bixby.

Frequently gets offered roles based on comic books. He was offered The Punisher (2004), Daredevil (2003), Hulk (2003), Iron Man (2008), Mr. Fantastic in Fantastic Four (2005), and Jonathan Kent in Superman Returns (2006).

He and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, suffered through two miscarriages, which they point to as the most difficult point in their lives. Both of their children are adopted.

Is left-handed, although often seen doing things right-handed (such as shooting, much like actor Keanu Reeves).

Upon meeting Olivia Newton-John (John Travolta introduced the two while he and Jackman were filming Swordfish (2001)), he confessed to her that under his desk in elementary school, there was a poster with Newton-John on it, and he would kiss the poster every day.

Has two older brothers, Ian and Ralph, and two older sisters, Sonya and Zoe. Also has a half-sister from his mother’s side of the family.

Had to shave off all of the hair on his head and chest for scenes in the last third of the movie The Fountain (2006).

Was considered for the role of Harvey Dent/Two-Face in The Dark Knight (2008). The part went to Aaron Eckhart, instead.

People Magazine’s "Sexiest Man Alive" in 2008.

Hugh was cast straight out of drama school playing Kevin Jones in a 10-part drama series aired on Australia’s ABC called _"Correlli" (1995)_qv), which was the original creation of actress Denise Roberts, who is also the principal director and CEO of Screenwise, Australia’s leading film & TV school for actors in Sydney, Australia.

One of his lifelong goals is to play Pharaoh in either a Broadway production or a West End London theatre production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.".

Vacationed with his family in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, staying at the world-famous Copacabana Palace Hotel. [January 2010]

Lives in New York City, New York.

Close friend of Liev Schreiber.

Personal Quotes
On turning down the chance to play Richard Gere’s character in the Harvey Weinstein-produced film Chicago (2002): I thought I was too young for the role. You have some 34-year-old guy up against Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renée Zellweger and it becomes a different movie. At one point, Harvey was telling me they were thinking of Kevin Spacey, and Ivtold him, ‘That’s exactly right. You should hire him.’ Then I was in New York when the movie opened and the queue was around the block. I sat down and thought that I had probably made the biggest mistake. But I still honestly think that it was the right thing to do. I still think I was too young for that part.

Finally something my family can be proud of

"Now I meet people with full-color Wolverine tattoos on their backs. Thank God I did okay, because I think if I handn’t, they’d spit on me in the street." – on his role of Wolverine

There is something very secretive about the way they cast that role. I’ve never had an official call asking: ‘Are you interested or not?’ but there’s no guy I know who wouldn’t want that role — and that includes me. Anyone who says otherwise is lying. [on the now (Nov. 2004) opened spot for the next James Bond]

on comic books: I never read comics as a kid, and when I was slipped the comics under my trailer door, Bryan Singer didn’t want us to read them. He was very frightened that we would come out with these 2-D characters, and I was amazed at how helpful they were, the images more than the story. The images, and how they capture emotion or an action sequence in just, say, three images. I have to say I used them as inspiration for some of the fighting stances or techniques. The way Wolverine stands and how he looks.

on Wolverine video game: "I didn’t do the motion-capture work; I didn’t do any of that. I don’t know if they’ve used my voice or not, they probably have.. I did a lot of recordings on the first movie for dolls and video games, so they probably just used the same stuff."

on his action figure: People can stick pins in it, put in the freezer. It’s far more dangerous than a video game.

on playing Wolverine: The character I play is actually only 1.6 meters [5' 3"]. Before I had any kind of acting profile I was encouraged to lie about my height. I was told to say I was about six foot [1.83 meters] tall. I was worried about it when I first had my audition because pleasing fans of the franchise is important. My height was brought up on the Internet. They didn’t think it was right. A lot of people who never met me think I’m very short. James Marsden (Cyclops), who’s only 10 centimeters [4 inches] shorter than me, was put on boxes and platforms in our scenes together. You’ll notice that every character in X-Men (2000) looks taller than me.

I’ve always felt that if you back down from a fear, the ghost of that fear never goes away. It diminishes people. So I’ve always said yes to the thing I’m most scared about. The fear of letting myself down — of saying no to something that I was afraid of and then sitting in my room later going, ‘I wish I’d had the guts to say this or that’ — that galvanizes me more than anything.

Acting is something I love. It’s a great craft that I have a lot of respect for. But I don’t think it’s any greater challenge than teaching 8-year-olds or any other career. In my life, I try not to make it more important than it is and I just hope that rubs off on the people around me.

Becoming a father, I think it inevitably changes your perspective of life. I don’t get nearly enough sleep. And the simplest things in life are completely satisfying. I find you don’t have to do as much, like you don’t go on as many outings.

I have shocking teeth. . . . I’m being a little facetious – I just went to the dentist the other day, and he looked at my teeth and went, "Oh, my God, you’ve got gray teeth."

Joking about being selected ‘most sexiest man’ as People Magazine’s annual choice, 2008: I think we ran a very strong campaign and I’m not proud of it — I can admit it now. We’re the first ones to run a negative campaign and we spent years bringing Clooney, Pitt, Damon, and McConaughey down to size. I was prepared to do absolutely anything.

[on his 8-year-old adopted son Oscar] He said to me the other day, ‘Dad, two o’clock, hot chick.’ He walks over, and I heard him say, ‘Hey, my dad’s Wolverine.’ That’s his opening line! He brings them over and asks, ‘Dad, can we have a few autographs for the girls?’ I’m like, ‘Am I pimping for my kids?’

If ever there was any doubt about whether or not people wanted their comic book heroes dark and vulnerable, I think X-Men (2000) started this idea, and The Dark Knight (2008) last year really confirmed it. Audiences want to see that, they want to see the superhero’s frailties, their doubts, and their battles.

My idol was Olivia Newton-John…I had her poster and I would kiss it every day. I met her and told her that…and she was like, "Great".

Often his wife and, sometimes, members of his family stay with him while he is shooting on location.

His mother abandoned the family when he was 8 and moved back to England. His father, an accountant, brought up five children himself. The first 18 months of Hugh’s life were spent with his godparents.

Personal Quotes
On turning down the chance to play Richard Gere’s character in the Harvey Weinstein-produced film Chicago (2002): I thought I was too young for the role. You have some 34-year-old guy up against Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renée Zellweger and it becomes a different movie. At one point, Harvey was telling me they were thinking of Kevin Spacey, and Ivtold him, ‘That’s exactly right. You should hire him.’ Then I was in New York when the movie opened and the queue was around the block. I sat down and thought that I had probably made the biggest mistake. But I still honestly think that it was the right thing to do. I still think I was too young for that part.

Finally something my family can be proud of

"Now I meet people with full-color Wolverine tattoos on their backs. Thank God I did okay, because I think if I handn’t, they’d spit on me in the street." – on his role of Wolverine

There is something very secretive about the way they cast that role. I’ve never had an official call asking: ‘Are you interested or not?’ but there’s no guy I know who wouldn’t want that role — and that includes me. Anyone who says otherwise is lying. [on the now (Nov. 2004) opened spot for the next James Bond]

on comic books: I never read comics as a kid, and when I was slipped the comics under my trailer door, Bryan Singer didn’t want us to read them. He was very frightened that we would come out with these 2-D characters, and I was amazed at how helpful they were, the images more than the story. The images, and how they capture emotion or an action sequence in just, say, three images. I have to say I used them as inspiration for some of the fighting stances or techniques. The way Wolverine stands and how he looks.

on Wolverine video game: "I didn’t do the motion-capture work; I didn’t do any of that. I don’t know if they’ve used my voice or not, they probably have.. I did a lot of recordings on the first movie for dolls and video games, so they probably just used the same stuff."

on his action figure: People can stick pins in it, put in the freezer. It’s far more dangerous than a video game.

on playing Wolverine: The character I play is actually only 1.6 meters [5' 3"]. Before I had any kind of acting profile I was encouraged to lie about my height. I was told to say I was about six foot [1.83 meters] tall. I was worried about it when I first had my audition because pleasing fans of the franchise is important. My height was brought up on the Internet. They didn’t think it was right. A lot of people who never met me think I’m very short. James Marsden (Cyclops), who’s only 10 centimeters [4 inches] shorter than me, was put on boxes and platforms in our scenes together. You’ll notice that every character in X-Men (2000) looks taller than me.

I’ve always felt that if you back down from a fear, the ghost of that fear never goes away. It diminishes people. So I’ve always said yes to the thing I’m most scared about. The fear of letting myself down — of saying no to something that I was afraid of and then sitting in my room later going, ‘I wish I’d had the guts to say this or that’ — that galvanizes me more than anything.

Acting is something I love. It’s a great craft that I have a lot of respect for. But I don’t think it’s any greater challenge than teaching 8-year-olds or any other career. In my life, I try not to make it more important than it is and I just hope that rubs off on the people around me.

Becoming a father, I think it inevitably changes your perspective of life. I don’t get nearly enough sleep. And the simplest things in life are completely satisfying. I find you don’t have to do as much, like you don’t go on as many outings.

I have shocking teeth. . . . I’m being a little facetious – I just went to the dentist the other day, and he looked at my teeth and went, "Oh, my God, you’ve got gray teeth."

Joking about being selected ‘most sexiest man’ as People Magazine’s annual choice, 2008: I think we ran a very strong campaign and I’m not proud of it — I can admit it now. We’re the first ones to run a negative campaign and we spent years bringing Clooney, Pitt, Damon, and McConaughey down to size. I was prepared to do absolutely anything.

[on his 8-year-old adopted son Oscar] He said to me the other day, ‘Dad, two o’clock, hot chick.’ He walks over, and I heard him say, ‘Hey, my dad’s Wolverine.’ That’s his opening line! He brings them over and asks, ‘Dad, can we have a few autographs for the girls?’ I’m like, ‘Am I pimping for my kids?’

If ever there was any doubt about whether or not people wanted their comic book heroes dark and vulnerable, I think X-Men (2000) started this idea, and The Dark Knight (2008) last year really confirmed it. Audiences want to see that, they want to see the superhero’s frailties, their doubts, and their battles.

My idol was Olivia Newton-John…I had her poster and I would kiss it every day. I met her and told her that…and she was like, "Great".

A few good Monster Tattoos pictures I located:

photoshop components vs three maxed out beautification
Monster Tattoos

Again just a bit of pshop practise , largely out of boredom, and it is wonderful what even an old creaky version of elements can do with an applied artistic hand, but it by no means fails to strike me when carrying out this how badly the method has been overexploited to give females unrealistic expectations of themselves. Most models appear like shit up close too. We all do.

This all about an unrealistic conformism to a type of beauty that merely does not exist, and the original model by any regular is a pretty girl and does not genuinely want photoshopping.

What was completed here is distortion alteration to the aspect ratio to create a slightly much more compact look, the original was tilted 4 degrees left for the a lot more intimate position, the colour operate was substantial, the hue of the whole image went through at least four manipulation to alter greens to warmer tones , highlight blues upped, shadow reds upped and midtone greens decreased, an orange gradient on soft light was added and then reduced back to avoid hypersaturation, and every blemish, pore, follicle, chickenbump, zit, scar, and stray hair was cloned away. No one has a face that flawless, nobody.

The teeth were resaturated with white there are selective sharpens or blurs on just about every single square inch, blood vessels where taken out of the eyes, hair was broadened. The cloth, the hair, the eyes and eyebrows, the lips, the gaps in between the teeth had been burned in. Bags and crows feet reduced by varyng densities of cloning, and a median noise reduction mask applied selectively to most places in patches, then completed with edge gaussian blurs, and hand blur tooling to make the graduation of blur less noticeable. The liquidiser was utilised in expansion mode to make eyes a small wider, and in reduction mode for lip edges for a much more pursed look.

20 minutes a cost of 10p in electricity.

Not 500 quid of dental perform, not £2000 of collagen injections and eye lifts and skin peels, not botox, not a touch of makeup let alone the £70′s worth it would take to make an individual appear like this.

Seriously if you try to aspire to look like a picture in a magazine your a bloody mug. Even in makeup adverts the makeup is added digitally. This girl is barely into her 20′s at the most, and just appear how a lot you can do to a person like her to make her fit a preconception of perfection.

Its about sell , sell, sell. You never need to have any of this shit. Maybe a small eyeliner, a touch of lippie, and a bit of foundation, beyond that, whats the bloody point?

Providing people a digital make-more than is fun, if only to take a sharp poke at marketing practises in the fashion and cosmetics industry, but anyone who requires this stuff seriously as the feminine perfect is a pissing idiot. Those that do are just probably to become surgery freaks and will eradicate every final factor about them thats charming and actual. Generally a total loss of character is in the offing.

Life brings scars, wrinkles, lines, spots, sags, stains and blemishes, its as person as the skin of a reptile, the coat of a mammal, the scales of a fish, its the tattoos of our lifes knowledge. We try to hide our lifes knowledge as even though it had been a badge of dishonour or anything, and for what? To please corporate bosses- the most vacuous of the pointless. Must look fresh and professional at all occasions eh? Hate to remind these folks but i’m not a machine and in a more true globe I’d rather take their damn head off than be judged by them at any level. I am not about to let them to exploit me because they hide behind the arm of the law and peer stress. I can be physically policed but never a suboordinate in mind. We must tell them to get fucked much more typically, risk of job or not. The end is worth the signifies. If asked the question &quotAre you a corporate&quot , just answer &quotNo. I am far beyond that, I aspire to maintain my humanity intact.&quot

It is by no means excellent to sublimate your self for appearances sake. Its also intrusive and they need to not be asking so much, it is not their correct to do so, any more than its my appropriate to smash their faces in for taking the fucking piss and trying to manipulate the identity of myself and my generation entire. If the gloves come off, I win, plain and simple. No-a single fights harder than the one particular who fights for freedom.

These who are not monsters have practically nothing to hide.Its just about saying, I am human, and this is who I am. Enjoy me for who I am. In a way it can also truly be stated, that only under those conditions will you locate the proper mate for you. Got to shoot your weight with sincere intent.

Reality as well is a test of companion selection, its the inverse of excessive preening, its the pragmatism of a actual life. We need to all be asking ourselves what is far more attractive, to be dazzled by superficial beauty, or do we lock onto that partner who sees who we are for actual and will really like that, who finds beauty beyond the mere masque of a painted face. Will I keep away from the superficial, will I steer clear of convention for I am not a sheep who runs with the group, will I quantify my partnership by means of the things that truly matter?

Beauty and style are trends , a life is a considerably longer knowledge and you have to survive it creating, fostering and preserving a true really like throughout that life to sustain oneself. Beauty without is transient, beauty inside is not. Additional to that we ought to be searching for the sensible, the loyal, and the type, individuals of integrity or permanence. Honour enough to build a life solid enough for lifetime happiness , an environment in which kids need not fear household break-ups. Acquiring laid, getting attracted, these are nothings , you cannot trade a life for the desires of youth, why be a prince or princess, why be the light of a star that must die young when you can be the permanent glow that lights the universe for everyone, when you can be king or queen.

Enjoy does replace greed, because it is the ultimate factor that can’t be taken from you, yet you have to nevertheless fight to protect it. Our greed, our lust for material wealth is love gone incorrect, displaced. To be greedy is to have forgotten what really like genuinely is. The realm of the mind can be richer than the material world and I pity these who trade enjoy for acquire. Its a power of the universe forgotten.

Its a tough mission , but until we let the foibles of superficiality go our possibilities of acheiving that mission are virtually zero. Life is the teacher, if you will not listen , what else to you hope to do except fall to the misery of a lonely heart, to be a pointless heartbreaker, to reside as absolutely nothing more than a genital tool? Its never ever about the most spectacular guy or girl in the area, its about the one who will stand by you, who you feel honoured to know, priviledged to be with. You may have to quiet your need to even hear them, to even see them.

Strong together. Thats a matter of the heart, of compassion, strength of character, loyalty and an unchanging depth of adore, who have the wisdom in no way to let life make them ugly on the inside, and men and women who know these items are typically not glamourous. Their beauty is the persistance of time itself. Theirs are the arms in which you can lay your head, protected loved, secure , and in that warmth is a enjoy a lot more glamourous than any surgery can supply. You would live by and die for one particular yet another.

For my younger friends , this is an absolute truth I have learned. I bring it to you in the hope that you will uncover happiness. Don’t watch for beauty, really feel for it.

You will know in your heart, in the pit of your soul, this is the absolute truth.

Coo, all that and i am not even vaguely religious. In fact thats why I hate religion, it packages, labels, and dominates, and adds dogma and enforced exclusivity to almost everything in life that you should be capable to work out for oneself far more accurately.

No read chapter and verse is as poignant as the human spirit in voice, speaking from genuine experience. The worst issue about religion is that often it gets remarkably close to the truth, the heart of mankind, and then turns it into something unspecial , unreal, and all for the dominion and power, the extremely antithesis of its finer teachings. This is not about faith , its about heart and getting the wit to see. To be alive.

Kriegaffe #ten
Monster Tattoos

Image by ElDave
From Wikipedia:

Though most of his physique was destroyed, his head was kept alive in a jar. Von Klempt created what he referred to as a ‘kriegaffe’ (German for ‘war ape’, even though ‘ Kriegsaffe is far more appropriate), a sort of Frankenstein’s monster-like ape, to do most of the perform he could no longer perform himself. At some point he had a swastika tattooed to his forehead.

Following the war, von Klempt retreated to a base in the jungle close to Macapa, Brazil, where he started operating on other projects. It was there in 1959 that he was confronted by Hellboy, who was investigating the disappearance of peasant girls in the location. In the fight that ensued, Hellboy defeated von Klempt and his ape, whom von Klempt referred to as &quotBrutus&quot. Von Klempt’s inert head would not be observed for decades.

A couple of nice Monster Tattoos photos I found:

Satisfied Family members
Monster Tattoos

Image by rutty
I went for a monster walk around Beeston Canal right now in an try to discover some nice &quotVanishing Points&quot. I was frustrated in that search, but decided to come back along the Trent towards Beeston Lock.

It’s a lovely walk, although some shorts would have been a great concept, along with some sun screen I believe. I suspect that I might be a little red later. Anyway, there is one tiny &quotbeach&quot along there that might have presented me a nice shot down the Trent, but there was a loved ones there currently, splashing about in the river like they were on vacation. Naturally, I felt like a paedo waving a camera about while two little girls were parading about in their swimming cosies. I created a hasty exit, but not ahead of I heard one particular of the girls say &quotsome man just took our image&quot. Bloody hell fire, this camera will get me in problems at some point.

Fortunately I wasn’t pursued by a massive, tattooed, angry father and located another tiny path down towards the river a bit further down. Across the way from right here had been this household of swans. Now, these are the sorts of youngsters I like shooting! They’re almost certainly the only ones that must be swimming in the Trent as well I suspect.

I got my extended lens out and did my very best. I love the reflection in this and the watchfulness of the parents. It is not as sharp as I’d like (my lens is a bit soft at the lengthy end – 300mm) but it’s one of my favourite nature shots so far. Perhaps even worth the sunburn.

Zongo two
Monster Tattoos

Image by Mad Czech
This is Trondheim’s version of Zongo, the monster that Louis drew for him. Took him about 5 minutes to draw, and then his colorist spent about ten minutes adding the tattoos while Trondheim drew sketches for me and Paul. The artist asked Louis if Zongo was his favourite character, and he mentioned yes, but I added &quotpuis les p’tits lapins,&quot so he drew in a rabbit. The rabbits in Donjon tend to have huge mouths that get them in difficulty, and I have the feeling that this one particular just said one thing he’s gonna regret. Not that Zongo understood he smashes everything in his path just by instinct.

The smudge at the best left is from a fleck of soot from Paul’s burned page.

We truly bought this volume of Donjon on web site, since we only had two books with us and we wanted three sketches. It’s the second book in the series.
