Barbershop Mutant

I have spent most of June and some of July working at a welcome leisurely pace on this complex beast of an ink drawing. It is applied to the walls of 28 Girls and Boy Barbers in Hockley, Nottingham (who, may I add, are expert fringe trimmers) and it stretches 10 feet up, covering the entire wall of old German maps. This was a really fun project, though installation could only take place when the shop was shut which meant my dinnertimes usually consisted of a bowl of muesli in a hairdressing chair. It was well worth it though.
