Words by Glen, Artwork by Shyra
On the second day of TATEmas, Mikel gave to me:
two angel wings
and a bloody bird in a bare tree.
This piece is 8×10″. “I made the wings from a self drawn wing form that I went over with hot glue and white paint to give the wings a 3D effect. I drew a simple picture of Anna on separate paper and cut a cardboard form for the body drawing to be adhered to. The lyrics to ‘Sometime Around Midnight’ are written in the background since her violin opening to the song is so iconic.” Comment below to enter to win this original artwork by Shyra Taylor. We’ll announce the winner tonight at 10pm Pacific Time.
Shyra lives with her husband and two girls (dogs) deep in the heart of Texas. Every spare moment she has, she spends in her studio listening to TATE and creating mixed media pieces using personal drawings, paints, pencils, papers – you name it. She enjoys finding ways to reuse/recycle different things in her works as well as collecting objects she finds in everyday places and odd spaces alike.
Glen is the founder and editor of This Is Nowhere. He’s grateful for an understanding wife and kids who indulge his silly compulsion to chase a band all over the Pacific Northwest (and occasionally beyond) every time the opportunity arises.
