Today was the day the first images went up in venues around the city. Jayne Evans and I had previously ( last thursday) mounted some of the drawings, fighting with clips, velcro, and spray glue, to mount the drawings onto foam board, with perspex glazing and then onto specially made easels.
I took the first drawing ‘Patricia’, to the Futon Shop this morning, and the second ‘Joyce Dunbar’ to The Book Hive. When I got home this evening, I recieved a wonderful email from Joyce which read;
‘Yaaaaagh! I walked into the city today and saw the lovely portrait of the lady in the futon centre. And her great quote. And then I went to the book hive and saw the shocking picture of Joyce D who pretends to be me.
Seriously Malca, I think this is a great idea and wonderfully executed. It is a bit weird to be suddenly confronted with an image of yourself – but the pictures are so bold and dramatic.
