You and me, miss, homo sapiens, too by chesya
You and me, miss, homo sapiens, too
This crosses over two series I'm working on.

1) Homo Sapiens, Too! inspired by the song by Pete Shelley better known as the lead singer of the Buzzcocks, a seminal band of the British New Wave of the late 1970s in which a man extols to his boyfriend that they are, after all, human as well as homosexual using the pun on 'Homo'. I thought the same could apply to a positive relationship between people of different sizes.

2) Julia. A doomed love story in which a woman remembers her first girlfriend and the joy of that relationship. Based on a song by Derbyshire folk singer, Lucy Ward. I am to depict tender moments between the girls. The title for this could easily come from the song Together, girl just uz against all of the world. Here are the words and a link to a performance on Youtube.

Lucy Ward - Julia

Dear Julia
I'm writing home like I said that I that I would...
It is colder here than it should be for the spring
No one else has noticed so maybe it's just me.
Please don't tell them that I've written,
It will only raise conversations you want to avoid.
Julia! It'll be our little secret. I just wanted to tell you... I'm alone.
Dear Julia, do you remember those hours before liqueur
When we laid in bed for days.
Together, girl just uz against all of the world.
But what we didn't know was that the enemy had changed - nothing stays the same!
Please don't tell that I've written: your name and the place, the number and city.
They won't understand when you tell them you miss me.
Put this letter under your covers so I'm closer while your sleeping.
Dear Julia, you haven't changes since we were only sweet seventeen.
I loved you then as I love you still!
But I've put you on a hill. Now your only way is down.
Please don't tell that I've written: your name and the place, the number and city.
They won't understand when you tell them you miss me.
You miss me!
You miss me!
Please say that you miss me!
You miss me!
You miss me!
Please say that you miss me!
You miss me!
You miss me!
Please say that you... miss me!

A'Mhaighdeann Bharrach - The Barra Maiden 3 by chesya
A'Mhaighdeann Bharrach - The Barra Maiden 3
This the third version on A'Mhaighdeann Barrach - second version in progress - A' Mhaighdeann Bharrach - The Barra Maiden by chesya

I'm experimenting with drawing things that cannot be seen. The most obvious way to start is with the anthropomorphic symbols in mythos and legend. This gives me a platform to start moving away from conventional representation - this gives me the second step here intensifying the negative emotions of grief and horror and the ineffability and strange beauty of the mythical beauty.

A' Mhaighdeann Bharrach - The Barra Maiden by chesya
A' Mhaighdeann Bharrach - The Barra Maiden
This is part of my ongoing project to depict what cannot be otherwise seen. The easiest place to start are invisible being to which we give human and/or animal form.

This is from Scottish Gaelic song

A' Mhaighdeann Bharrach - warning is the saddest song I have ever - I'm even tearing up writting this.

Cluinnidh mi thar uchd na mara                     I hear from the depth of the sea
Ard os cionn na gaoith ri gaillinn                    High above the raging wind
Torman beag an cois a'chladaich                   Soft murmuring on the shore
Mionaghallan na maighdinn Bharraich           The keening of the Barra maiden  

Seachad Ciosmul a'chaisteil                           Passing Ciosmul Castle
Eithrichean a' ruith le astar                            Boats sail swiftly
Fàth mo bhròin tha aon tè                               The reason for my sorrow
Dh'aindheoin m'ùrnaighean nach tìll gu acair    One of them will not return to anchor in spite of my prayers  

Cha dean sinne ghaolaich chiataich                 We, my gentle love
Mànran ri chòile gu siorruidh                           Will never talk sweetly together
Gruagach na stuadh ghabh i miann ort            The maiden of the waves desired you
Shuain i cuailein ort na liaghain                     She wrapped her hair of seaweed 'round you

Ionndrainn mo leannainn ga mo riasladh          Missing my sweetheart is torturing me
Mar fhraoch geamhraidh tha mi ciaradh           I am graying like the winter heather
Speireid beatha dh'fhalbh e, chrion e               The spirit of life is gone, decayed
Dh'fhalbh an gaol 's an òig gu siorruidh            Love and youth have gone forever  

Cluinnidh mi thar uchd na mara                       I hear from the depth of the sea
Ard os cionn na gaoith ri gaillinn                     High above the raging wind
Torman beag an cois a'chladaich                     Soft murmuring on the shore
Mionaghallan na maighdinn Bharraich             The keening of the Barra maiden

Song and lyrics by Father John MacMillan - translation by Celtic Corner www.celticlyricscorner.net/mag…

There is an incredibly beautiful version arranged and sung by the wonderful Maggie MacInnes on her album
