Some of you finished making the artwork... I've just started, even though I chose the theme for my book some time ago. Anyway, I'm going to make it in black and white and I may make it lok a little bit like collage. The theme of my book is "alice in wonderland", and I'm going to blend the elements, characters and ideas from lewis caroll's book in my entry. I don't want to start my moly just like the story in "Alice in wonderland" begins, I just want to make some kind of tribute to it, choosing the particular images that were the most important for me when I read the book whan I was a kid. I know that each one of you find many different parts of the story in "Alice in Wonderland" as the most significant ones. It's just like when two people watch the same movie, but each one of them pays attention on different things in the plot or in its visual structure. I hope that later on we will have a chance to compare our impressions and memories related to "alice in wonderland"
And, this picture is just the first two pages of my moly, not the proper artwork I'd like to make on the accordion page. I'll try to speed up a bit, cause I've got the iression that I'm the laziest person in this group:)
hi there, I've just thought that it will be better to post the order of sending books here instead of sending several e-mails... I've changed the order a bit so that r8r, cindy and glix could receive a book from other part of the world, not only u.s.a., ok, so the order is: monikasilvs (Poland) to Mariah (Spain) Mariah(Spain) to r8r (USA) r8r (USA) to Janine (Netherlands) Janine (Netherlands) to Cindy (USA) Cindy (USA) to LauGiraudo (Argentina) Laugiraudo (Argentina) to glix (USA) glix (USA) to monikasilvs (Poland)
hope that it makes sense:) I sugest you guys not to hesitate to contact via flickrmail or adding the group members to your flickr contact lists. It's the easiest way o get to know each other better, get the addresses that you have to send your books to and so on... have fun:)
I've begun my book. It's the first of May here in Portland, Oregon, USA, which works out to a time of changeable weather: a chilly gray downpour one minute, sunny skies and chirping birds the next. I was sorting through ideas for this book's theme, thinking of Ideas with Capital Letters, when I realized that was rather artificial.
The theme will simply be the thing I'm most interested in - people. I'm going to start off by observing and drawing people at whatever location or event I might be present at. Eventually, then, the book will be a record of peoples' doings, in various locations around the world, through the eyes of several artists.
I drew first at a street art show, and at a wine-tasting, trying to show something of the people there. I'll leave off showing a work-in-progress page until later. At this writing I have two of my panels complete, so I'm guessing I'll be able to send this on in a week or two.
