I've been trying to finish my zodiac set. Finished years ago, stashed away, gathered dust and once dusted off, seemed lacking.
It's been staring me in the face all this time, but I hadn't noticed that Libra, Aquarius and Sagittarius were missing faces. No wonder they were missing that 'je ne sais quoi'. Well now I know what.
So Libra is now a plate spinning cat, Aquarius is an octopus and Sagittarius just gets a bearded face since he already has the body of a pantomime horse.
Sketch for Libra
Libra before the head.
Libra's cat head sketched in.
First colour way for Libra cat.
Aquarius octopus. With cat eye glasses.
Blue Aquarius. I might turn him / her / them green.
Much prefer this shape. It has more feeling.
Sagittarius gets a head.
Sagittarius with skinny neck.
Fitting the Sagittarius head.
So that's a quick peek into the behind the scenes for the zodiac set.
Did I choose the right animals for Libra and Aquarius? What do you think?
My new octopus Aquarius looks very phallic. I think that's a good thing. People can't help relating positively to archetypal images. It's interesting the way there is a feminine shape inside the phallus. It's like those cartoons of little people pulling levers in people's brains. A penis operated by a female without a brain?
