The Librarian – In Memory of Terry Pratchett

My all-time favourite author has to be Terry Pratchett, who sadly passed away on the 12th of March 2015 at the age of 66 leaving me completely heartbroken. His hilarious, philosophical depictions of people’s foibles and fears always made me smile. Well to be honest, it was more like raucous laughter coupled with tears streaming down my face. His books and all the wonderful characters he created will live on forever. Two of my favourite characters have to be DEATH and the Librarian. DEATH always speaks in capital letters and is such a bewildered sweetie-pie.

Despite Rumour. Death isn't cruel - merely terribly, terribly good at what he doesClick to Tweet

He loves kittens, curry and drinks way too much when he wants to forget. When Sir Terry died his daughter, Rhianna shared the sad news on Twitter in her own unique way.


I’m not tooo clever when it comes to Twitter 🙁 , so I did the next best thing,  I tried to honour his memory by painting my other fav. The Librarian runs the library at Ankh-Morpork’s Unseen University where an unfortunate magical incident took place that turned him into an orangutan, a state he clearly enjoys. Offers to turn him back to his human form are met with lots of “oooks”, “eeeks” and improper gestures. The Librarian will do anything for a banana, enjoys a few pints at the local pub and is usually pretty easy-going. But, whatever you do, never, ever, ever, call him a monkey. You may not live long enough to regret it 😀

In honour of Sir Terry Partchett - The Librarian

Are you a big Terry Pratchett fan? Who’s your favourite character?

P.S. Did you know there’s an eek smiley …………. 😮 I wonder if the Librarian had anything to do with it?

    I just finished reading a book where the Orang curses and the monkey's half human. Your painting has me in a strange mood. But it fits perfectly with the book.

      Thanks my friend. I hope the strange mood is a good one though

    The librarian has been sold. I'm going to miss him soooooo much, but he's going to a fellow Pratchett fanatic so he'll be in good hands.

    I didn't know much about Terry Pratchett, till now and I can sure connect to the humor. :) :) As I always say, we can be far from one another or talk differently but Art brings us together. Stunning work..
