If I do enter H and L the section I will be choosing is to combine Tudor England and 1970s rock concert.
I got hold of some original vinyl Ziggy, Roxy music and Marc Bolan LPs, but no records unfortunately. Theres something to say about album covers and inner sleeves, nostalgic overload for someone who would have been 3-4yrs at that time. Anyway got a few sketches, took some photos and a bit of research done, in between removing goldwork from my fabric.
|Im thinking Bowies 'spiders from Mars' merged with the web of deceit amongst Elizabeth 1st royal court.|
|Also though web would be a good starting point as they look like crystal lace work. This image however also has a feel of a cobweb on a ships mast which is another idea I am thinking of going down.|
|this cobweb could be inspiration for embroidered wings but Bowie style.|
|I dont even mind the terrible quality of the phots, I think it adds inspiration. I might print of this photo and embroider a drawing to see if things develop further.|
