Don't blink. Blink and you're dead. Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't blink. Good Luck.

A while ago I made an art journal page with one of my many graveyard angel photos (taken on Christmas Day in Fortune Green cemetery, London)

It is still one of my favourite pages in my journal, so I thought I'd go bigger and make a canvas along the same lines.

Of course it has turned out looking entirely different.  But where would the fun be in doing the exact same thing twice?

I've kept the "Don't Blink" title, though, as like millions of other Doctor Who fans, that's all I can think about now when I see one of these angels!

Here's the full thing - the angel is a gel medium toner transfer over an acrylic and spray painted background.  And the "don't blink" is black Copic pen airbrushed through a hand cut stencil.


Here's hoping that the Doctor was wrong about that whole "That which holds the image of an angel becomes itself an angel" thing!

Gorgeous piece Sarah! I envy you for working so 'freely' on canvas! I hardly work on it myself, I'm kinda scared to start on canvas and I 'block' when I have a plain white piece of the stuff in front of me... weird, isn't it? I might force myself sometime, and buy 10 or 20 to try to get rid of that feeling... teehee...

Marit, it's easy - just pretend it's paper! :)

Oh I love this! I love the angel episodes and it's the only Dr Who monster that freaks Craig out - hahaha! Probably because I like looking at stuff like that in cemeteries so much.

Brilliant canvas.

I love what you said to Marit about canvas!! I often wonder where to start when I go big... That was so creepy - Dr Who and the whole don't blink thing! Brilliant canvas Sarah - I still have to get round to cutting a stencil though!!

Brilliant, the Doctor would be proud of it :)

A scary episode, but not as good as Midnight, where you never get to see the baddie :o
