The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

American Gothic 2 - Patrick and SpongeBob

As much as i d like SpongeBob I think that Squidward would have been a more suitable substatute for the man in this take on American Gothic. The creator seems to have missed that in the original the pitchfork (here the spatula) is reflected within the man's dungarees (don't know how to spell that sorry!) and in the window behind. An effort for the idea of '3' has been made within Bob's shirt but this is not as effective as the original. However this image and the idea of creating it is very much in the style of the wonderful people to do SpongeBob...

hmm i just noticed that there is something weird going on with the lighting... i think there are two light sources, does Bikini Bottom have more than one light irradiating planet at a time?
