Art Journals

Years ago my old journals were destroyed in one of my many moves. If they hadn’t been, this pile would be about three times the size it is now.

I did two more drawings on monoprints last night. The metallic wax is really finicky to photograph. All the little dots at the end of the flower spikes are highlighted with metallic wax.

The Freedom Fighter’s Manual

I also finally got images for all the pages of the last big book I did, The Freedom Fighter’s Manual. There are 51 two-page spreads, which is ridiculously huge for one of my books. It took FOREVER to finish, and when I was done I couldn’t stand the thought of scanning the whole thing. I was going to scan it this weekend, so I could put it up on Etsy, but then I couldn’t find the power cable for my scanner. It’s always something. I ended up just taking photos of the pages with my phone, which is going to have to be good enough.

I spent my weekend making monoprints and drawing trees on them. Also one lonely Queen Anne’s Lace.

I found some staff meeting doodles in an old notebook that I’d forgotten to share.

I played around with monoprinting the other day. I didn’t have much interest in printmaking when I was in school, so I just avoided that whole section of the art building. But monoprinting is kind of like painting, so I thought I’d play around with it.
