The fluffy ornament design, or: the female tentacle monster

female tentacle monster 2

female tentacle monster 1

It started with a weird fruit and it ended with the female tentacle monster. There have been weirder creation stories, like god being born from ice cream gone bad by Jeanet Winterson. Thank that being for creating crazier people than me.

I am working on an ornament for the left one. The right version can be downloaded full print size from my flickr account under a creative commons license. 

New History (2004)

new-history-6_800

New History I is born from an attempt to recreate one of those huge tapestries depicting epical wars with monsters, and huge armies marching by, and the good king performing good deeds. All these tapestries have huge borders filled with ornaments. New History 1 was the first one, the one with the monster. It was supposed to be a series, but after a while I did not like number 2 anymore. Maybe I will continue working on it, maybe not, or maybe I will start a new series.
