‘Flann’s architectural digest’ is a series of drawings exploring Flann O’Brien’s illusionistic architecture & the denizens that haunt it. In ‘Flann’s #17′ a rubber band wraith hovers in the Mad Woman’s attic, kept at bay only by the guardians ‘toes n toast’  & ‘Jerry’s lunch’.

Together, the drawings and the clay things are a celebration of the absurd. Ordinary objects mutate into a simmering consomme of fact & fiction. In this series of parallel worlds Hanna Barbera meets the Rationalist philosophers.
