I finally plucked up the courage to work on my monster “alien signpost” piece again, needle felting some details into the surface and fulling it. It spent yesterday blocked on some children’s play mats and drying in the lovely weather we have had this weekend.

If I trim it, I expect it to look something like this:
And as a triptych –
Version 1 landscape:
Triptych version 1 portrait:
Triptych version 2 landscape:
Triptych version 2 portrait:
I am racked with indecision about where to go with this piece. What do you think? Do you prefer the portrait or landscape orientation? Which of the triptychs is most aesthetically pleasing? Or should I scrap the triptych idea altogether and revel in the torn paper effect?
