This is a page from my hardcover 8-1/2" x 11" sketchbook. (Which generally is filled with random doodles and stuff.) This page was fun to create. It is sort of a mishmash.
There is a bit of Lynda Barry's influence (dotted lettering and yellow legal pad doodles). I used a few paper pieces I received from other artists, as well as paint, punches, stamps, stamping, doodles, etc...
My favorite components are the sections from a handwritten letter I received from my Grandma. I scanned the original and printed it out on colorful lined paper. Whatever new art form I was experimenting with (pysanky, tatting, polymer clay, oil painting, etc...), I always sent my new creations to my Grandma. She passed away in 2004.
