Mixable week 1: Get a life!
Here is a retry of the 2013 Diary project. I had to get a new book, because it was impossible to work with ink and watercolor in the the previous book. I got a really nice and hand one with 136 pages that take a lot of water. This will give me the opportunity to do two pages per week. I realized that only one page is not enough content for me to put on my blog.
Less story, more art. I hope you are going to like it. Since I was going to share from fiftytwo weeks of my life again, I felt I had to do something complicated and vivid. I don´t want to portray life as a series of single pictures, life is involved and complex. That is what I love about it, that is one thing that makes me want to draw and write about it.
So, this little project got me on the idea of making a «mixable» diary-book. The concept is best know from children´s books and puzzles. Both the top and bottom part of the illustrations and of the stories are mixable.
This is going to be fun (and a lot of work)!
