    Not all manga but some yes. Knitting is easier that what people think I'm sure almost anybody could learn in less than 1 week. :)

    Thought I would show you some of my artwork if anyone is interested here it is...

    My work is about isolation and documentation of my own thoughts and feelings.
    This work took a year to make and is made from clay.
    The figures represent the isolation, and the decorations on the figures represent the thoughts and feeling I had at the time of making that individual figure.
    I made about 300 altogether but picked the best ones for my final piece.

    The work was shown at my degree exhibition summertime 2012

    Here's a couple of pre exhibition pics.

    So there's my artwork hope you like it :)

    Wow, the level of symbolism is outstanding. Each figure representing different parts of you as well as the mood when you created one. The impact of seeing them all stood together in the exhibition room must have been powerful. I would imagine they command a presence that draws a person to observe them. Even in their mute silence, they shout for attention. This I find interesting, considering they are partly about isolation.

    Also, they do remind me of Egyptian Ushabti. As well, in their position I saw the Terricota Army. Whether this was intentional or not, it adds an air of mystery to them as a result.

    Ahhh man, THANK YOU so much for the comments :mrgreen:
    Yeah there was something quite powerful seeing them on the plinth when it was exhibited. You don't get that from the last pic, but it seemed quite eerie at first look.
    I wanted the viewer to interact with the piece and find stories through the decorations. I wanted people to be able to feel their own emotions through the piece and relate to them.
    One of the reason I had them shown close to the floor was so the viewer had to look close to find the stories.

    Yeah I found a lot of inspiration through looking at the Terracotta Army... I also looked at Grayson Perry just because of his ceramic work.. Also Anthony Gormley because of his figurative sculptures :D

    Thanks again :mrgreen:

    Wow, you also knit. The figures are so funny. You really have in you the peace of an artist to be able to do all that. :P
