Linocut with possible eyes…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s existential angst is centred around the sound of the word mumble.

wp-f-dscn4692Here’s another of my loopy linocuts from earlier this year; it’s on nice thin Japanese paper (probably Kizuki 4 Monme – I love those words! I could imagine a black and white Toshiro Mifune grunting those and then laughing uproariously!) about A4 size.
Hm, I suppose it’s either lightly falling snow, or it’s deep space – but there are funny goings on going on whichever it is. Hm, I think it’s more like deep space than snow don’t you?
I suppose one would notice those eyes on the white planet first – us humans are preprogrammed by evolution to be on the lookout for eyes.
Hey up! Something’s peering at us out of those bushes – come on Ugg, let’s run!…
But is it a planet? Well, if this is deep space it must be one – perhaps it’s called Planet Pasty Face?
And then of course having been set up by Mr Pasty Face’s eyes, you would probably spot those two central white spots hanging there – will we see these as eyes too? Gosh look at all those crazy lines and things jumping about – they seem to be getting themselves into a right tangle! Are those lightning bolts sparking around the place? Did I just hear a distant boom of thunder?
Hey Ugg, did you know that thunder is just the gods laughing at us?…
