The Eyes Have It

 Mag 136 is playing with our minds this week, as an opulent swirl at centre stage dazzles us with colour. But all is not what it seems...thanks to Tess and David Salle.

 

Look hard and you'll see
how this came to be -
a flip and a stretch,
et voila! A new sketch.

Hands up all those
who would not suppose
two faces would stare,
under pink or blue hair?

  1. I can only see one face (but it took you to point it out). Very clever!

  7. There is a look of Anime to the faces in this pic - especially the eyes. He's certainly fond of his swirls after a quick research! Top marks for noticing, Jinksy.

  11. I spotted those cartoonish faces, nicely highlighted in your rhyme....but what's with the legs in shiny hotpants that they're emanating from?

  12. From my upside down viewpoint, I translated those as the tops of shiny black, knee high boots belonging to the pink haired person, but I do see how, right way up, they could be hot-pants. Apart from that, your guess is as good as mine as to what they are doing in this picture. Perhaps the artist was flying by the seat of his pants?

  13. Love what you saw in the painting ... the first thing I saw in the upper left corner was that old Genie!!!

  14. These interesting images remind me of Japanese cartoon art images like Sailor Moon and Pokemon. I enjoyed your poem, Jinksy. Thanks. =D

  20. I love when I can see through someone else's eyes. I only saw a face, until I read your words ;-)
