Hell IS other people

Here I have paraphrased Jean-Paul Satre because in his play Huis Clos, or No Exit, he doesn’t actually mean people are the absolute worst when one of the characters says “L’enfer, c’est les autres” but in this case that is exactly what I mean.

There I was going on my first excursion outside in about 5 days due to the fact that I have underlying conditions. The sun was out, the breeze whipping through my wispy geography teacher style hair (cheers lockdown!) when I noticed the first idiot coming for me. 

It was a middle aged woman who for some unknown reason crossed the road and walked straight towards me. Not 2 metres in front or behind me but exactly to my location. Luckily for the lady, I didn’t have The Answerer with me, a hefty blackthorn staff blessed by the gods who just loves being used to beat the stupid out of people especially when they don’t adhere to scientific recommendations. Think Thor’s hammers Mjolnir or Stormbreaker but instead of the unworthy not being able to pick up the weapon, the unworthy get a knock upside their head in the hopes it might shake loose some intelligence….

It is A2 in size and made using pencil, watercolour, acrylic and spray paint

Lady Thor

Lady Thor

Lady Thor test spray

With the announcement that Marvel are to reinvent Thor as a lady in the comic book series I thought it about time to wheel out my version of Lady Thor that I’ve had kicking around for a while. I’d never really found anywhere suitable to paint her on the streets (and had only done her as a test spray) but with the advent of me trying to clear the various collected doors and other found objects from the garden I thought she’d be a perfect fit on one of the doors – and it turns out she is. Now i’ve just got to find somewhere suitable to leave her.

Here she is with her mystical hammer, Mjolnir, in hand calling forth some lightning in her sexy little metal breastplate and helmet. Although thinking about it that sounds like a rather risque outfit if you’re messing with electricity…

Cheers
