page 6 in Johnny Norm's: Variation on a theme

Amanita Muscaria Revisited, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. I prolly won't make a habit of this, but I stuck the scan of this into Photoshop and fooled with it and put the results onto page 6 of John's Moleskine, paired with the other one. I applied various filters, did some burning and dodging and "re-painted" parts. I was going for texture. I may post a couple process pix because BB kept coming and taking my picture while I was working. Filters used: colored pencils, rough pastels, poster edges. Also some layer blending.

As I'm sure you know, Mary, this is just the sort of thing that I encourage; and, vice versa by the way. It's fun to watch you with your moleskin. :)

Hi Mick, thanks a lot for the support.

The Moleskine thing is really fun--but it is also a lot of work and takes me away from other projects. Every time I get one done, another arrives in the mail. Phew!

It's really great to see all the work that comes through my door. I enjoy that part, but I feel a little pressured to perform even when I have other obligations!
