A short comic by Tara Lucy
This short comic was inspired by a late afternoon trip to the coast for a dip in the sea and a dinner of some freshly fried chips. While I sat on the sand overlooking the sea and eating my portion of chips I noticed seagulls begin to surround me. They came from all directions… Staring at me… Staring at my chips. As I came to the end of my portion I threw them a few of the crispy scraps that remained in my chip tray. These seagulls were a patient and polite bunch but the moment made me consider that special relationship between seagulls and chips, reminding me of past observations witnessing gulls trying their chances with successful results.
About Tara Lucy
Tara Lucy is a Norwich based artist, working mainly in ink she creates drawings and short comics which capture moments in life. Drawing being the anchor of Tara Lucy’s practice, she makes observations of the everyday and translates such into drawings and narratives. Very much interested in the integration of art and life, she looks to meet creatively with all aspects of living where making a cup of tea or walking along a street can hold an artistic reading. Inspirations stemming from urban environments to elements of nature, she combines all to create artworks which are an insight into the world from the perspective of the artist. In approaching her ideas with a dry and sometimes satirical sense of humour her artwork presents a playful and honest, while imaginative take on life experiences.
Studying for a Masters in Arts Practice, Tara Lucy is forever experimenting with ideas and methods to present her observations and channelling concepts through the process of creating.
