I invent my forms as I go with my drawings. I have my 'rules', and the mark-making is largely responsible for the resulting form. I was quite happy inventing totally new ways to represent insects and beasties - then I saw these!
I couldn't actually believe my eyes when I saw these - they are actual organisms made out of glass.
I looked at them and saw my own work! Nature plus a glass artist beat me to it.
I have seen photos of the museum in Vienna with the strange glass jellyfish which I adore - I have to go there one day to see them - but I hadn't seen anything quite like this
I don't generally have a 'must have' gene but I am actually lusting after these (metaphorically speaking, I'm not that weird).

Welcome to my blog, where I share what I have been doing during the week.
I have copied blog entries created under my nom-de-plume Binky McKee to their own blog. It can be found on my illustration website, Binky McKee.
