Many-eyed minstrel chickens and severed scaly dragon tails are but a few of the recurring motifs in the wonderful works of Nick Sheehy.
Though originally from Tasmania, Sheehy now lives and works in Leigh-on-Sea (UK) with his girlfriend Catherine.
His images, often rendered in black and white pencil cross-hatching, feel like chapter illustrations from an on-going epic saga. There’s a vaguely medieval feel to them: from the feathered costumes his minstrel chickens sport, to the general aura of magic and mysticism. There’s a story going on here, and I feel if I stare hard enough a Sheehy’s pictures, that I might just start to decoded its secrets.
