As the date for my exhibition gets closer, the three remaining pieces are coming together. Today I managed to complete the first of the new images, part of the “Animal Behaviour III” series. The title is Sheep, and is a witty social statement about the trend of people following trash TV in an automated ‘sheepish’ way. The image shows the pencil rendering of the artwork, and later next week will see the painted version.  


1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
