Fun, lively print of my original watercolour FLEA painting with hand embroidery featuring details such as Zebedee from the Magic Roundabout and a Space Hopper! Friends with an entomologist and wondering what to buy them as a gift...and let's face it we've all been there?!
I had this picture in my head for a while, inspired by all my street art chums that I've made, a re-watch of one of my favourite films, Dougal and the Blue Cat and also the recent de-cooting/de-flea treatment of Kitty Team MimiLove...(not including Mr. Mimi...I'll get him next time!)
The original piece has now sold but a rather fabulous print is now available! Click here if you'd like to see more or even treat yourself to possibly one of my more random artworks!
See Mr. Flea preparing to leap off the canvas leaving a watercolour trail and a blimming great bite in his wake!
The original work was a watercolour riot in shades of golds, purples, blues and lilac's with big dribbly splashes of scarlet and crimsons. Also included hand embroidered graffiti in a positive rainbow of stitches in a variety of silks, cottons and metallic threads for added bling!
BOING! There's Space Hopper...one of the more annoying toys from my 70's childhood, mainly cos the folks got sick of carting me and it up to the local garage/air pump to re-inflate it...ah heady, dangerous days
Pinging off in all directions are lots of hand stitchy springs, flowers, glass beads and tiddly black French knot fleas...ooo itchy! JUMP!
There's Zebedee, my favourite character from The Magic Roundabout, with his whiskery tash and snappy bow tie, wobbling around on his spring too!
