“How to Open Your Ears” Print



Part of the “Remake You + Me” illustration series, “How to Open Your Ears” explores the relationship between words and anatomy. Illustrated from the position of Quinn the Fox, an observer who has no medical or scientific knowledge but has only learnt what he knows about the ears through sayings, idioms and colloquialisms, this print examines what it means to be human post-lockdown, as we slowly re-emerge into a brave new world.

Illustrated as a mechanical drawing in exploded isometric projection, the illustration reimagines the human ears as a pair of headphones. In a typically oddball, Quinn the Fox manner, the print attempts to explain how certain idioms relating to the ear came to be.

Available in A3 (297 x 420 mm) or A2 (420 x 594 mm), these prints are produced in Wiltshire in the UK and printed on Hahnemühle Ultra Smooth 100% Cotton paper and come unframed.
