and an interesting day.
First, another variation on the accordion spine with holes in the pages – mostly made from envelopes. And interesting shadows, again.
Second, a copy of something I saw on a website – and apologies if it was yours, because once again I’ve forgotten where I found it. A tiny Japanese bound book in a matchbox – cover and pages made from collagraphed newspaper.
Interesting that something that small needs lots more stitches to look right, than I would put in a much bigger book.
I got lazy and punched the holes in the top, rather than cutting them out – the black marks are my doodling. An idea which needs work, I think - perhaps printing on acetate and mounting in black card windows?
College was interesting today, because, despite having been married for nearly 40 years, and having two sons, I can safely say I have never looked so long or so intensively at a man with no clothes on.
Yes. Life drawing. And I enjoyed it. Even the last hour when I was drawing the gentleman in a pose where he was lying down on his back with his feet closest to me and his head all but hidden.
Like I said – interesting. [Never have we been so quiet. We were concentrating, of course.]
I can show you some of the photos I took in the lunch break, though.
and litter. Do you think this is becoming something of a fixation?
