057 & A Contest!

Another unfinished piece from over the weekend. I hope this doesn't become a habit.

So, anyone want to collaborate with me on this?

Color it in? Paint over it? Run it over with your car?

I will run a contest for a week, the two best submissions (most colorful & most creative) will win a prize pack from my studio! It probably will contain a handful of pens and a journal or a sketchbook. Perhaps some original art?!?

Anyone who posts a link to their mash up with this page in the comments is entered to win. Also, be sure I can find your email somewhere to let you know if you are the winner.

I will pick a winner on Monday, March 7th.

Collaboration with little Mahlee, she did the red scribbles. I kind of overpowered them, didn't I? What a brute.

This is the last page of book number one, the pocket page. It was nice to be able to use a Sharpie. If only they didn't bleed through the Moly pages so easily I would use them more.

So, some things I have been thinking about since I last checked in are:

How do y'all title your work in the 'skines? I find that writing the title on it after I am done with a design that utilizes the the whole page kinda miffs me. I usually work in spiral bound books and title on the back. Any thoughts or ideas to offer me about this quandary?

Also, I find when I do an abstract piece the middle seam REALLY throws me off. Whereas if do a more realistic piece I treat the seam as if it's not there. Isn't that odd? It almost becomes a hindrance to the abstract pieces and breaks them up in a way that I am not so sure I like.

On to book #2.
