My EDinM entries for the fifth, sixth and seventh are doing double duty. They are my contribution to an art journal round robin that I am playing in. Planning and drawing for the round robin has been keeping me pretty busy, so I'm going to let them stand for my EDinM entries for the days I completed them on.
The theme of the round robin is Journey to the Imagination. Any time I start a drawing project my children ask if I am going to be drawing chibis. No matter what I draw, they like the manga the best, especially my chibis. So for the first spread I did my little chibi alter ego reading the book, The Scarlet Pimpernel and imagining herself as the heroine, Marguerite. The text is from the Gutenberg Project. I played with it in Photoshop then transferred it onto an inked spread in the book using Sheer Heaven paper. I added in the colored chibis then finished off with some Twinkling H20s paints. I wish the scan had caught how the Twinkling paint shimmers and shifts colors….
On the sixth I worked on a spread that was inspired by a poem that I love, The Stolen Child, by William Butler Yeats. I borrowed a line from the poem and changed it a bit to issue an invitation to an imaginary realm.
For the last entry, I drew a firebird since I'm fond of firebirds (obviously XD). and because flights of fancy are imagination in overdrive. I did this on crumpled masa and pasted it between the other two spreads.
