I’ve got my eye on you…

Oooh a big malevolent eye gazing at you! How very frightening! The evil eye is a surprisingly widespread belief  that a look is able to cause injury or bad luck for the person at whom it is directed for reasons of envy or dislike. Be afraid, be very afraid for the eye is staring at YOU!

Working on cardboard is quite liberating as you can really let rip and let inspiration (if you can find any) take you wherever seems good. I think most of the cardboard bits are probably destined for the street although sometimes they can look good when framed. I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see… 

Using just about all the paint, pens, printing equipment and whatever else we have kicking around these are a lot of fun to work on and this one even features a (largley illegible) excerpt from Hans Christian Andersen‘s story ‘The Darning Needle’. So know you now.

Cheers

Taking the bull by the horns

Apparently the phrase ‘to take the bull by horns’ originated in the American West where it would be an everyday practice for cowhands to have to control bulls and steers (young bulls) although if i’m honest that had very little bearing on this piece. I just thought it was a particularly fitting name…

Anyway I just love working on slate. It looks great and has such a tactile quality so expect more to come.
