Over at Paper Traders, I am managing the current round robin journal project but was disappointed that I couldn't commit to actually participating this year. Working 50-60 hours per week at my two jobs has left precious little time for making actual art. What time I do have is spent doing more management type work for the group, although I have been trying to host the occasional ATC swap.
Even though I did not participate in this year's round robin, I did make a spread in my mom's journal which has the theme of Graven Angels. Everyone's work so far has been lovely but they tend to be dark and somber - no surprise, really, given that it's all about cemetery statues! Yet, death has never felt like a dark spectre to me so I wanted to make a page that was lighter and more introspective...
...in fond memory of George, Grandma Betty, Jennifer, Grandpa Holso, Alyssa, Uncle Ronny, Danny, and Aunt Joyce. I love and miss you all and I'll see you someday soon!
the greater your capacity to create."
