Bean's Mobile

Mobile ImagesLiam and I began the slow, gentle art of collaboartion with a mobile for Feets before she was born. We wanted to do something similar for Bean - a black and white mobile again (it's all the poor souls can see), but we were running short of black and white animals having used them all up on Feets. 20170103_095427So we decided to look into the indigenous art of Liam's British Columbia.

With immense time pressure, Liam was more adventurous than me, and really got into the symbols and patterns of different groups. I copied my first few directly, and then got weary of the lack of imagination and finally braved having a go at designing my own, with a duck and a squirrel from our local park. The bottom row above are Liam originals, the top row are mine.

By copying the make up of Feets' mobile, I also finally conquered the art of making the mobile structure itself - so watch this space for many more mobiles to come!
