It's more or less clear to me that Gordon Cole is gifted with some sort of extra-sensorial perception. The most notorious examples are his vision of Laura at the hotel and the most recent Monica Belluci dream. I've stumbled into his drawing today and a lot of coincidences took an instant shape in my mind, all related with the journey to 253 yards east Jack Rabbit's Place and Andy's visit to the White Lodge (?). So here's what I saw:

  • The arm: Represents the vortex/Fireman picking up Andy to deliver his message. That arm belongs to someone dressed in a coat and shirt. The shirt's cuff is visible on the wrist and that single dot is there for a reason.
  • The nose of the creature: Very similar with  the sharp part (projector) of the object given to Andy by the Fireman. The eye of the creature is placed right where the nose starts to take shape.
  • The paws (legs): the creature has four legs which in itself is quite banal, but four men went (walking) into that journey. Each paw has two claws (feet?)
  • The antlers: look a lot like trees so they might well repŕesent the journey into the woods. Could also be an evocation of the Bookhouse Boys symbol (see below). Hawk, Andy and Frank are longtime members. After his rebellious youth Bobby turned out to be one of the good guys, so he may have become a member.
  • The tail: if someone asked what is Andy's most distinctive physical characteristic I would say immediatly: his (Tintin) hairstyle! Also, if you look at the creature's butt (isolating it from the rest of the body) it resembles a human head with hair on the top. A little bit cruel, I know, to call him a butthead now he his a heroe.
  • Finnaly the dots. I didn't knew what to do with it. So why not connect the dots? So I did. At first I was disappointed: the shape was very similar to the creature's body. But giving it a second look it reminded me of a blade. So I've connected the leftmost point with the rightmost point and the blade turned into a double-edged sword (see below). The other element on the Bookhouse Boys symbol! Note: the sword starts at the leftmost leg and ends at the rightmost one. All the legs (Bookhouse Boys?) are under (belong?) to the sword (society?)

Now you can hit with all you've got, but it was real fun exercise?

Forgot to attach the Bookhouse Boys symbol. Sorry!

You don't get hit in this space, certainly not for taking that kind of deep, thoughtful and creative dive! I am not sure that would be my analysis (if I had one- I have no theory about the drawing), but it is super-thinky, and admirable.

Keep it up, and keep sharing.

Hi Octavio,

Oh no!  Arrow has swallowed the Washington Monument!  =:-O

Just kidding.  😉

Well, you should see the look on my wife's face while I was drawing that sword over Cole's creature. This whole thing may cost me a divorce.?

The dots reminds me of Lucy's outfit in what the Fireman showed Andy.
