Apologies for having not posted in ages. I’ve been working on a Hippo-related project, which is nearly ready to be announced, but which is taking almost all of my art time.

Anyway, last weekend we went to a local exhibition of the work of Jeff Koons. One of his special tricks is to make giant sculptures which look exactly like they are made of shiny balloons, but are actually made of steel. The urge to reach out and touch them is almost unbearable.
