Sisters of the Wind

East of the Sun and West of the Moon

I like this compass on Bee Creative, reminded me I could sew my own.

And this image on Gerdiary is another sort of compass.

....

Off topic: I see an ad on my site meter - KFC is now contributing to breast cancer research. The slogan? "Every bucket makes a difference". I'll bet.

Wouldn´t that feel good, going off into the blue as an adventuress, equipped with hand sewn compass...?!

G- You sort of do that now...if not knowing how fabric exploration will end.

Charles Gramlich said...

Yeah, letting the wind blow you like a tumbleweed. Sounds like fun.

I love your compass illustration! The girl looks to have helium inside her and she wants to fly - or float. Lovely. And Bee Creative and Gerdiary's creations are simply beautiful.

i think it gives the illusion of flowing together, intertwined- one full circle

beautiful compasses and suns, and the sense of flowing/flying/ through the deep blue open spaces of the links, joyful personal voyages.

A- I get by with a little help from my sisters.

Another fantastic image. How do you manage it? I've given you a mention over on my blog and if you'd like the book to work on let me know.

Lady on the left just took me straight to the end of Tod Browning's "Freaks". I must have a state of mind at the moment.

Loved the material links.

ArtSparker said...

Titus- I can see the chicken woman.

I think I will dream of traveling with the wind tonight... :)

Celeste Bergin said...

you created a lot of swirly motion. I am always amazed at how you create such "animation" with just ink and photos.

yvette said...

Laura said...

Titus said...

Thank goodness! I was beginning to think it was me.

Asja said...
