Ross Noble’s Eye


This eye belongs to Ross Noble, who is a comedian.

I cut it (the eye) from the Big Issue (18-24th July, 2016. 1214). I don’t know who took the photograph.

I tweeted Ross Noble to ask if he knew. I got no response. He probably gets loads of tweets.

I have emailed the Big Issue, so hopefully I can credit someone soon.

You can see the other thirty-one eyes, here, if you like.


Toby by Harry Vernon

I have taken the liberty of calling this dog ‘Toby’, as opposed to ‘Punch and Judy puppet’, since this is the name usually given.

Toby was made by Harry Vernon (c1920-30), and is now owned by Peter Blake. He was part of a marvelous Barbican exhibition, entitled ‘Magnificent Obsessions’ (2015), which showed stuff collected by artists.

The square was cut from an exhibition leaflet, and the photograph was taken by Justin Piperger.
