So thats that! I'm very pleased with how it all came out. mine have a physical presence and pop out of the wall in a way I couldn't imagine while I was wrangling them on a computer screen. I might write more about it later. also I love all the work mine gets to share the walls with. The Here gallery have a load of photos of everyones on their flickr and there is a lovely review from wrap magazine here.

we picked up some magic lantern slides a few years ago. I would love to make some art work that had a similar feel.
A series of medieval illustrations produced by monks forms the bases of these ones. Largely forgotten now, their story was still popular in the time of the magic lantern. Having been kidnapped by vikings on the way to America, the monks were only able to blog their experiences using a primitive ftp protocol fashioned from pinecones.
