Tanagers

Scarlet tanagers from the Towneley Hall collection. When I looked at photos of tanagers in the wild, I discovered they look nothing like this; they are tiny and round! The Towneley Hall specimens are pretty squashed and hunch-backed. I really like bad taxidermy.

Original drawing (A2): £600

Narrenschiff III
Narrenschiff III

This is a drawing inspired by the idea of the medieval Narrenschiff or Ship of Fools, which was a sort of floating lunatic asylum. I tried to re-imagine this vessel as something other than a boat, and made several drawings. In this one, an unseen craft is pulled by flapping chickens.

 This began as an illustration for my own book, but I went for a mentoring session at a publishing house, and they told me not to write the text directly on to the image in case the book is reprinted in other languages. Whoops.
