As I get closer to sharing my hinged beasts with the world in printed form, or even in person (the originals that is)... I am making more and more, tweaking, calculating the mass of brads I will need and fielding questions about buying the originals. I am almost there.
Two Sea Beasts

I like these two together, and was going to frame them up for the The Little Teapot exhibition... but I have a good friend that, I think, is insisting he wants the Sea Man on the left. We'll see. I have time to make him another friend if that is the case. I have added a little more "seaweed" to the sea monkey on the left too.
I am laying out the monsters to print (two per page) so people can make their own little beasties.

I finally got my hands on some brads, chopped away and now have, well kind of have, one I am no longer in possession of... but I am very pleased with my sea beastie. I am looking forward to my weekend, (starting tomorrow), and doing some more.
These creatures are goauche on thick handmade water colour paper (paper from the Burnie Maker's Workshop no less). Maybe I'll print some, but I am not so sure as yet.

This one is my favourite one so far. I just sat down after working in the restaurant for around 23 hours (with a six hour sleep after 15 of those hours). Just needed to get something on the blank piece of black I had painted. Now to get my hands on some brads and put him together, after cutting him out, of course.
I have had a thought of wanting to make a couple of jointed "animals" for a while... then I bought November and December from wool and water and it was kind of fun cutting them out and putting them together, I thought I might make some of my own.
Listening to "Experimental Jet Set Trash and No Star" by Sonic Youth...
I forgot how much I loved that album when it came out.
