New Artwork: Speech





Speech, pen, acrylic ink and printed text on 200gsm card, 14.5 x 20.5cm

This is inspired by this post by Loqui:

Speaking with her mouth full

I love her the most
when her mouth is full
watching her
brimming with words

face of flame
eyes of water
my own battle
with speech

I had some ideas floating around my head for something like this but I saw this poem and it bought my ideas together.

The printed text flowing from the eyes and mouth had to be made quite small for me to be able to use it so it’s no longer readable. The text is actually the poem repeated over and shaped to fit where I wanted it on the image.

This is not technically related to my ongoing Loqui series but I was inspired when I saw it posted. I guess you could think of it as a bonus artwork. 🙂
