Morning Mr Magpieby John Tibbott
ABOUT THE ART
The second in my "inspired by Radiohead" series. Magpies are considered unlucky in some cultures, British especially. Superstitious people say you should salute a single magpie, other say "Good Morning Mr Magpie". Magpies are also said to be home breakers and thieves. Often breaking open eggs in other nests, and stealing shiny things.
A bird that has to be addressed Mr, must be seen as a gentleman of sorts. So I wanted to give this an old-fashioned needlecraft feel, the Magpie is depicted as some sort of well-to-do villain.
