Bank Holiday Weekend Clouds

The half-elephant sheet before it was torn and folded looked like this:

Constable’s clouds

April 26, 2010

My new series of One Elephant books has grown into rather a large herd already, including some Small Elephants, which I’ll be adding to the Bookworks page soon. At the moment I’m working on Volcano Cloud (of course), but here I’ll show you one I made last week’s: Constable’s clouds

The full sheet looked like this before lettering and tearing:

I was reminded of Constable’s uplifting words when the sky was so beautifully empty of planes last week, but then, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, either.

One-off, signed artist’s book. For sale in my next exhibition.
