Derailing My Train of Thought by Thomas Wightman
Says Thomas about this project: “The final book sculpture of my major project series. Like the previous two sculptures it uses a visual metaphor to convey the emotions of obsessive-compulsive disorder, and embodies my research by visualising an expression used by a sufferer of OCD. The expression was ‘derailing my train of thought’, because the person felt that the rituals they had to perform were disrupting their day. Where the compulsions and worry would side track them from doing everyday activities.
To convey this metaphor the sculpture shows a train travelling on a journey that has become disrupted, leading it to derail from its set path. Typography was used on the tracks for the title of the piece, also type was used for the coal. In the scene it shows the coal cart tipping over where the type has become mixed up to symbolise the mixed emotions during anxiety and panic”.
The magic of Broadway, boys and girls. There’s not much in the world more spectacular.
Hello! Here’s another piece I’ve done for Let’s Draw Sherlock. It’s based on the “Demon Days” album art for Gorillaz (which I believe was inspired by The Beatles’ “Let It Be” cover). Rather than struggle to choose just four characters, I decided to display Sherlock’s different outfits and disguises, and then I just had to add the cigarette! It was good fun applying the Gorillaz characters’ style to him - especially with those eyebrows, eh? Oh, in case you wonder, he’s facing left for the sole purpose of showing off the damage John did to his cheekbone! Poor thing… (MY ART TAG)
I don’t think anybody realizes how dependent on books, and movies, and TV shows, and fictional places and things I am.
