Peculiar Things

peculiarthings

6 x 18 on deep-cradled gessoboard

This is such a weird format that getting it viewable on the monitor means you almost can’t read the text—”The sky is always the same/but/many peculiar things happen under the ground.” The masked rabbit is on a little square of board glued to the background, and so stands out.

As with many of these odd little masked creatures, it’s less a considered artwork and more of a thing-that-needed-to-be-done-at-the-time. So there’s that.

I don’t know if I’ll bother doing prints of this one, given that it’d have such very wide margins. The original is for sale, drop a line.

On a much more cute and normal note:

littlepinksquid

3.5 x 5, fitted to an oval mat. I so rarely work in ovals...

It’s a teeny squid! The original is for AC, but I’ll do a limited edition run of 25 prints (See, I learned my lesson about run sizes!) for $25 as well, first and last saved for cons as usual. If you would like one, please send an e-mail to ursulav (at) gmail.com and…err…yeah!

AND YES, I KNOW WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE BUT I LOVE HIM ANYWAY, DAMNIT, AND THAT’S TOTALLY HOW SQUID TOPS LOOK, SO SHUT UP. KEVIN, I AM LOOKING IN YOUR DIRECTION.

(Ahem.)

*meep?*

I didn't say a thing...

"squid tops" ... heheh.

*Looks around furtively*

I thought you had gotten over the phallic rock thing.

(What? Don't look at me like that. I see a sleeping badger, I poke it. That's just what I do.)

SQUIDS ARE NOT ROCKS. Ergo, I am completely and totally FINE. *mutter*

When I post tall stuff like that, I usually embrace the scroll bar and make it as wide as it needs to be. I find it enhances the sense of narrative to the image.

Also you could totally make prints of that by doing them like two up on something legal-sized and then slice 'em.

But at least it's not a standing stone....

*grin* I begin to see why you like painting them...

I... Words.... Fail.... It's soooooo cute!

I'm sorry. I can't help it.

The Rabbit

The rabbit has a charming face:
Its private life is a disgrace.
I really dare not name to you
The awful things that rabbits do;
Things that your paper never prints -
You only mention them in hints.
They have such lost, degraded souls
No wonder they inhabit holes;
When such depravity is found
It only can live underground.

(And both the masked rabbit and the squidlet are marvellous. Honestly.)

Hi! Long-time lurker, first-time commenter. I'm very interested in the rabbit painting--let me know if it's available and if so the price. Thanks!

Ack! I fear it went right away--very sorry! Clearly I do need to do prints...

To the pure, all is pure. Aww cute little squidly!
Can't help thinking, That's what the rabbits needed in Watership Down, GAS MASKS!

Squid are Jewish? Who knew (or nu)?

If you *did* end up doing rabbit prints...

...i'd definitely be interested... (can't stretch to an original - especially not with trans-atlantic postage!)

It's gorgeous, though.

Re: If you *did* end up doing rabbit prints...

I second that! I can't afford the orginal, but I'd totally get a print of the bunnny picture.

Re: I can't help it if squids look like that.

I got the same response to my crocheted squid.


Re: I can't help it if squids look like that.

And I did too, with my knitted squid! :D
