Gabriel the Archangel

Gabriel the Archangel

'Gabriel, the Archangel'

Lorna Marrison

Still continuing my series of the sinners I now present Gabriel the Archangel played by a Eynsham Morris dancer. Gabriel is often painted as a mortal man. Traditionally he blows a horn to initiate the 'Last Judgement'. Here the accordion chord instead of calling for 'fresh men' sound the end of times. This chord is symbolised by the sound wave on the horizon. His body holds back the chaos.

Job Application

Lorna as Designer

I graduated in 2000 with a 2.1 graphic design and illustration but for family reasons was unable to apply for a designer job. I am angst ridden on writing a cover letter for a job as a junior designer at the OUP in Oxford. So instead of writing I thought of the more unconvential idea of doing it as an illustration saying something about me. My cv tells them about my skill sets but I feel the cover letter is suppose to say why 'they' should employ you.

My reality is that I am a fat middle age women who needs a job and whose greatest talent is being able to think outside the box but suffers from lack of confidence.

So do you think sending in an illustration is a good idea.
