I had such fun making this little
concertina book of
The Owl and the Pussycat
from Lisa Patencio's Soul Food lesson.
I totally failed at photographing this book
as it should be (the light is dreadful again
today) so flattened it out and scanned
it instead. I hope you get the idea.
There was lots of paint rolling,
stencilling and stamping for the background,
on which my very basic owl and pussycat
characters fall in love.
I really need to loosen up with my
character drawing -
Lisa made it look so easy :/
From the same background sheet I've got
another 5 books and I'm looking forward to
having a go illustrating
some of my own stories :)
The next Life Book 2014 lesson was with
and we were tasked to pick 3 favourite things
and create a journal page with them.
Kelly created a beautiful vintage inspired page,
but being a child of the 60's/70's I am always drawn
to the retro images and colours of that time.
I based my page around the comic book image of
the girl that I've had in my stash for a million years,
waiting for the right project to use it on (NOW!).
I also chose flowers as one of my favourites
along with colourful sweetie wrappers.
The comic book girl has my word for 2014
- ORGANISE -
always on her mind!
Onto the next lessons!
