Magical Mystery Tour

Magical Mystery Tour


This was an unusual skein for me, as I struggled to really clarify any image or direction for a story. My initial notes say “Kinda grungy, but also kinda bright. Odd combo of colours: coral, royal blue, yellow fading to green as it blends with black. Flashes of white. No idea where this will take me!” Which is how it earned the name Magical Mystery Tour.


It’s a mystery alright. I don’t know where to begin, there’s nothing to grab onto, to build on.

So, don’t try to hold on.

Take a step back. Take in the totality and let it organise itself. Let it come – don’t make it happen. Lose yourself. Let it surround you.

You don’t need to try so hard.
