She has a mouth on her,
that woman down the street
with the magpie eyes
and the skin that shrinks away from touch.
She's a firework,
that woman with the ramrod spine:
she says she doesn't need a man
and two joined hands at the altar
are two hands wrapped in chains.
They murmur about her,
those women up the road -
in the grocery, at the bank -
painting whispered targets on her turned back.
They are caged birds, she says:
silent slaves in their own homes
tucking helpless husbands into bed
and wiping liquor-stained kisses
from their lips.
She lives outside of their boxes,
that woman with warnings splashed over her skin.
A little update..
I have been living in big, bad Canada for the past 3 months! Which is great, and I'm returning in September for a WHOLE YEAR! Which is double great.
I'm working as an animator for a little film production company there and loving it.
The triple great news is that for the summer I'm going to be back home in the UK, relaxing/living it up without a job (well, without a full-time one - I will still be doing freelance illustration etc) and am really hoping to do some new art of my own and really, REALLY hoping to share it with you guys :)
In theory I will have plenty of time for lots of that :boogie:
Hope you're all
I want to apologise for the lack of new stuff here recently and make the following excuse:
I have a new job taking up my time BUT! I do have something for you - if you have a moment you should feel free to read my blog. It documents my travels as I hop from town to town taking photos and rating the things and places I see:
You will be pleased to know however that this job finishes before Christmas, at which point I will be plunged into a bottomless pit of spare time, with which I can do whatever I please.. and that means new deviations!!
You have my word.
In fact.. I have some festive brushes in the making for y'all...
Hello there!I made some artwork in the past using your urban scrawl brushes!I was wondering if I could upload it on instagram.I will credit you and add your channel's link in the description!Thanks for you time!
