draw in me - cover
Originally uploaded by anongrrl
last night, i re-did the cover of draw in me. i took some markers, paint pens, silver pen, and glaze pens to the cover, giving it a face lift from the hello-boring it was before. i ripped off the moleskine bookmark and elastic closure, and replaced it with a braided length of yarn embellished with some hand carved bone beads (tibetan, i think).
this revamp is in preparation to send it off to andrea, since my original partner for this journal dropped out, and andrea was kind enough to step in! i plan to largely redo much of the journal. gesso is in its future...
this reminds me of an exercise Judy Tuwaletstiwa suggested. start a painting, any size, any subject. paint and paint until you get something you react strongly to (hate or love). photograph it. live with it for a day or a few days. then paint over it. paint until you find something you react to. photograph it. live with it. paint over it. etc, for as long as is necessary.
materials: random paper bit, pen, marker, ink, yarn, & bone beads on the cover of a moleskine.
