Mail art postcard No. 4499…

Whoa! Now this is scary!
Yes, a simple collage using snippets from that cheap TV listings magazine What’s On TV. I’m afraid that I don’t know who these people are, I don’t watch that kind of television. They are probably from some cosy-murder British detective show, perhaps set back in the 1940s, or perhaps they are characters in that thing Uptown Dabby, or whatever it’s called… I believe it is very popular, not my cup of Darjeeling though…
These two do look quite posh don’t they? Those stuck-on eyes seem to enhance their poshness too. British posh people, members of the royal family for example, seem to have been especially bred with small eyes and small mouths, or rather normal mouths which they always try to keep tightly closed when they speak – have a look at Prince Charles.
As I was just studying these two I had the thought that it’s almost as if the eyes belong to the actors peeping out from inside their characters – as soon as they are ready for a take, they will slide their little trap doors shut and assume the character and start performing… Mm, I like that idea!
