many thanks indeed to Andrew for sending on images of how the Harlo Gang Christmas tree looks this year!
the aesthetics of it certainly suggest that Colin has been predominantly involved on a conceptual and design level, really.
wow. clearly this year Colin has chosen to evoke certain Renaissance-era sensibilities, adopting into it some bold, if not stark, post-modernist elements of nouveau cubism.
i particularly like the juxtaposition of the remote control under the tree, too - it speaks of their intention to watch the Doctor Who special on Sunday, come what may.
if the above picture was not enough, then Andrew also forwarded one more on, featuring the Harlo Gang before the tree!
the above is possibly Andrew's triumph. here, in the medium of digital, Andrew has stylised an image which seeks to recreate some of the more angular works of Hieronymus Bosch, injecting into in a some may say controversial sense of the self-portrait medium so often associated with Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun. outstanding, Andrew, simply outstanding. in particular as Christopher seems not to be wearing an offensive shirt.
well, i suspect that this update brings to an end the celebration of trees this year. what a way to end it off if so! i trust you have enjoyed looking at and reading about all these trees!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
