Paper Tyger by Hbruton Paper Tyger by Hbruton
Last month, or maybe two months back, I posted the Dandelion pic and some kind soul said I should do a paper tiger. Such a cool idea! I filed it away and did some sketches and tried to do a tiger made of paper. No luck as all I could think of was origami. But then this idea popped into my head. Finally got around to finishing it tonight. Had fun slapping nd splashing paint around. This is one of my favourite poems so I was glad to use it. A special thanks for William Blake for his wonderful imagery.
11x 14 ink and watercolour on watercolour paper

My Sophomore year in College I had two professors, husband and wife, who had done their Doctoral theses on, respectively, Blake and Shakespeare. I wound up with a lifelong fondness for the work of both authors.

I remember singing this in Pmea last year!
In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What hand dare seize the fire?

I love this poem and the way you incorporated it into the actual image of the tiger, which btw looks fantastic!!

Singing the song in chorus! I was super glad to see this. Will you do its Songs of Innocence cousin, Little Lamb?
