The highlight of this week was the installation of our stained glass window! Upcycled from two windows, originally made at Glasgow School of Art (we reckon c.1960), which were removed from the house across the road in the 1990s in bad shape, artist Mark Small worked to a very loose design by yours truly. I came up with the concept to base the design on the old game of Space Invaders - the photo top left is my original mock-up. Mark upgraded my original design to Super Intergalactic Star Wars!
We started work in earnest on November 4 this year, although the project was a only a dream for nearly two years. The Space Invaders theme is very appropriate for the snug room it was designed for, which is all about rest and play and relaxation. We are all stoked with the result, it is stunning! Thank you so much, Mark.
Please check out Mark’s website to see all the other art he produces, he is a man of many talents blessed with enormous energy.

Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
Welcome to my blog, where I share what I have been doing during the week.
I have at last copied my nom-de-plume Binky McKee blog entries from here to their own blog, having given the illustration website an overhaul. Peace and tranquillity may resume here in the somewhat quieter nature of Heather Eliza's work, while Binky has her own rather more colourful Weekly. Please visit Binky McKee if you would like to visit!
