My, Aye Eye!

Lat year, I started on an MA in Illustration :)  This was the first week; we were challenged to introduce ourselves with the Illuminated I and our relationship as Illustrators to this.  I see myself as a spiritual, astrologer, illustrator and artist. My eye: dot....  embroidered and the act of embroidery is meditative.... soothing and satisfying.  I looked at my own eye to create this.  The body of the i, cardboard cut out covered in modrock and collaged with aspects from my natal astrology chart....  astrology aspects can be read efficiently by any good astrologer...  it gives a lot of information regarding my traits, energies, talents and challenges...  analogue meets digital....  have some excellent software on my computer, just beginning to get to grips with it's abilities...  managed to layer and compose the eye within there....  I feel the "eye" also resonates with the culture of AI being driven into our lives for "security and protection" purposes....  I wanted to convey something of the veil we all live within, as I live in both worlds...
