The house move continues, and this week displaced objects revealed aspects of themselves previously unnoticed. Shadows on a bare wall bore painful memories of the school gym horse, but on a more sublime note others suggested Agnes Martin paintings (you had to be there, not the best phots!) and a woven rattan stool reminded us of her drawings. Familiar items left lying out of context displayed spectacular grids and patterns - and when carpets were lifted we discovered we had been living over haunted concrete!
Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
THE WEEKLY: BINKY McKEE AND ME
Welcome to my blog where I share my work as an illustrator as well as occasional events from the week.
I illustrate under the pen-name of Binky McKee, McKee being my mother's maiden name. Binky was the name of every single cat my great-grandmother owned - about 40 of them during her life! It seemed natural to devote my more nurturing, colourful, story-telling work to the female side of the family, whilst practicing my art work under my paternal name.
Currently I am working on illustrating a children's book, and of course I can't resist an Instagram challenge such as Folktale Week or Inktober!
I hope you enjoy the work!
