This page is a hodge podge of different things and “darkness imagery” that I really like. The very cool hanging bat is actually in the altered book, so I just painted black around those images. Then I’ve added magazine images, ephemera, labels, printed tissue paper with my own doodle and my own copied and spray painted papers (the letter stencil). I wrote a bit too, with a white gel pen from Sakura. My favorite part though, is the crying baby…
Another dark autumn spread that I’m calling “Unexpected visitor”:
Both the owl and the bear in the dark cave images are attached with tape in one end so you can flap them up to reveal a “secret” message. Just a little interactive play that I like to do every now and then.
