This altered book by Meg Kennedy, found on the New York Center for Book Arts artist website, is altered into a mini curiousity cabinet displaying forms of media, with a little stone tablet, scroll, accordion book / pamphlet, Japanese-bound book, chalkboard, codex, and CD drive inserted into the open text block. The book is transformed into a cabinet, a display case, a bookshelf, and a sculpture, and it’s still a book.

“Migraine.” Called in sick today and spent most of my day hanging around with migraine. I hope I have put in more details but I’ve got another migraine episode after sketching it. Nyarr. Ohwell. The sketching process:
(I should have stopped here. Hehe.)
I better hit the sack now for work tommowoww. Thanks for visiting! Have a good one :)
That’s why I couldn’t finish my paintings, which made me more sad and frustrated. The bunny painting was supposed to be a present for mommies for mother’s day, and since I’ve got a bad case of monthly dysmenorrhea these last few days (it’s so bad that a lot of times I have to be brought to ERs), I couldn’t help but to put it off (sorry, mum). Today I’m feeling slightly better though there are some pain around my hips foretelling another cramp spell, BUTbutbut since I’ve caught David Cook’s American Idol “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” performance on youtube this morning, i went from “w-ouchies” to……WOOOHHOOOOOOOHHHH!!!! what a great way to start a day,hearing and seeing that gorgeousness “sing” to you. hehehe.
Here’s a closer view of the girl doodle, anyway:
Happy Wednesday! And keep smiling!
(I’m so sad that I couldn’t vote for David Cook on AI though…I really really reaallly weally want him to win over that kid heheh)
Found out that the important editable Photoshop painting files are lost and irretrievable in my computer, I don’t know how it happened but ohwell. I’ll just have to make new and better paintings now. All’s cool.
I found one of my first digital sketches though while I’m searching for my Photoshop files and I textured it in Photoshop for a new look.
Here she is:
She’s one of my original characters. I drew her originally using a blue pen on my sketch pad, took a photo of it with my old DV camera then transferred and colored it in Photoshop.
I’ve opened a Redbubble account today too, I don’t know what to sell yet but I’ll just put this drawing on there to try it out.
I’m now also teaching myself HTML, so far I’ve learned basic html tags and forms and I applied bit of what I learned onto my side bar…see my image hyperlinks and new drop down menus for my Favorite Posts and Blog Directory? I loved them! Made my blog look less boring.
I’m also finishing some of my art requests and giftarts…hope they finish soon!
