Is birth the first day of your life,
or the first day of your death???

I like the idea of things being cyclical...


made with super sculpey
colours enhanced in photoshop


I had trouble deciding on the title. I went through a few;
- Suffer the little children to come unto Me
- Gently Weeps (Beatles reference...)
- Cain and Abel

I decided on calling it "Infected" as a reference to a term I hear being used quite often in science fiction movies to describe non-humans or the diseased. Although either of those Biblical titles would have been great too.

I took some new photos of this piece at a better resolution and I also entered it into the Spectrum 16 book. [link]
Hopefully it'll get selected.....
here's how it looked before [link]

Annabell and Darsey are girl names. I was just amazed by the sculpture.

Ok, this is gonna sound really weird, but does anyone else think it kinda looks like... Tommy Pickles? From the Rugrats? Or maybe his little brother? I know this is a beautiful (beautiful beautiful) sculpture and the rugrats was an intentionally crudely drawn childrens cartoon (which I haven't seen in years, to be clear), but there's something about the face... or maybe just the expression... I dunno, maybe I've gone insane. 

Sorry if that offends, I really do love this, and to be fair, I am thinking particularly of that one movie where they got lost in the woods and everything was actually quite sad and good. Like, like: 37.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_le2…

No? Just me? Ok.

...and I actually really enjoyed Rugrats. So maybe you're right...
...but you're probably not....haha

I think I actually was thinking of the younger brother. It's the upturned nose and the bags around the eyes. But yeah, this is fantastic. :)
