This crone has often travelled through my sketchbooks. (The one above is from 2012.) Originating in the 90’s, and in different incarnations, colourways and “moods”, she became machine applique on vests and jackets, and was quite popular. (I think there’s one version wandering around Hong Kong and another in San Francisco…)
Now i’d like to see her become a bit more tribal as she was intended. I’ll be working out ways to make that happen with the current “ethnic” studies and samplings i’ve been doing. Combining seemingly disparate elements has always been one of my favourite ways to work.
