more pages

I thought I would repurpose an old Moleskine day planner of mine. I gessoed the pages and collaged this little snippet of an article about Lyme Disease for my title page.

I used a combination of gouache, pencil and pen and ink for the drawings.

On the icicles spread, I did use a glaze of medium and acryla gouache. Because the gouache is water soluble, I sprayed Crystal Clear acrylic fixative over the drawing to keep it from washing away.
You may notice that I have left a lot of white space on the spreads. This afternoon, I turned the notebook over to a friend who is also an artist. She has written some funny poems that go along with my anxiety drawings.

I hope she will have fun with my drawings and that together we will come up with something cool. No matter what the final tangible product is, I know we will both have fun getting there.

Beach Shadows

This is my second educational job this year, which means I am ahead where I was this time last year. Does this mean that people are no longer outsourcing to India or Mexico? No, it does not. I'm just happy when one of these lands on my desk every so often now.
