The Man in the Moon

The Man in the Moon took another mug,
and then rolled beneath his chair;
And there he dozed and dreamed of ale,
Till in the sky the stars were pale
and dawn was in the air.

Let me introduce you to my Man in the Moon, a kind of altered art mini assemblage.
This all started of with a plastic ball, a zip from a pair of jeans, an old box frame and a glass eye.


Of course I had to add a light somewhere... so I decided to illuminate the glass eye!


Lots of fun doing this one, hope you like it.

Lights off...



Lights on!

  15. Oooh how creepy and original lol!! Do you ever zip him up to stop him looking at you? Ha ha!! Such an unusual idea, esp. the zip! You could hide a security camera in there.
