Worth reiterating, perhaps, that these cloth pages are meant to illustrate one continuous story. I was hoping it would be something like a children’s picture book (the full written version of it is here, if you’re interested). Maybe this will become more obvious once the pages are bound together in book form. I showed the first few pages to a friend recently, and he wanted to know why there were so many ‘sayings’ on every page. It didn’t seem at all clear that this was any kind of story. It strikes me that if I have to explain what it is, then it can’t be that good. Anyway, onward, to the crocodile:
Dreams are usually quite surreal, where things are not quite as they seem.
Mostly, I don’t like what I think of as ‘corny’ fabrics that are printed to look like something else – such as animal prints, stones, roof tiles etc – but in this case the snakeskin effect silk (from an old silk blouse, charity shop) was quite useful.
And, of course, there had to be a few more stones…
A note on comments, by the way – now that I have the ‘reply to comments’ feature, I’ll probably reply to comments here on the blog rather than individually by email, as I used to do on blogger. Please do feel free to add to each other’s comments, if you’d like to.
