A random conversation about old one pound notes in the studio the other day led to the Edward Lear nonsense rhyme going through my head. So I decided to illustrate the poem, and share the finished graphics with you.. You can buy them from the shop
You know the Poem? It’s wonderful..
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
‘O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
What a beautiful Pussy you are!
Here’s an illustration I did with the graphics. This is going to be available as a print soon for my open studios exhibition which is coming up in May in Stroud, Gloucestershire. It’s getting busy in the studio, more time creating art and less time spent on GoldenBingo.co.uk! Anyway.. ff you are based anywhere near Stroud, it would be great to meet you. I’ll write a proper post about it all soon.
