Babylon Don

A quivering tower of something-or-other.

I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do with such a long canvas when I first got it. I’ve had poor results with this shape before, it’s hard to connect all the elements together and you just end up with random bits floating around independently in the air.

The tower comes from a 1950s religious book for kids, I liked it’s slightly fleshy -look! I emphasized that with a creepy head and eight grabby little arms. There’s something slightly unsavoury about his red-nosed enthusiasm, but he’s one of my favourite characters nevertheless.

Despite having a fair number of floating items, I think this holds together really well and the three sections of the composition are joined nicely.
