Nice illustration - I wonder what the story is though.

You're been prolific as usual
I love the music instrument with arms.
You never see the same object the same way again.

always remember something you said to me last year:" Nibbles get ready for them" and you're right.

I really liked the illustration. It kind of reminds me of Edward Gorey, only friendlier.

And now I'm off to click the links…

lovely style as always!

So sorry dear Susan!I don't know why but I don't like this guy!he scared me! :(

ArtSparker said...

Parisa -

I'm going to guess that you're talking about the first image on waiting room aquarium's blog, and I'm guessing it is a little too close to home (Gaza) for you.

Interesting how context changes our perception...taken out of a cultural context, I think the photograph is about isolation, not violence.

Eric Barclay said...
