Journals and Painting in Progress

I've been taping together a lot of loose journal and sketchbook pages to make books.  Thanks to Kelly Kilmer's workshop I learned an easy way to bind pages together. 

recently bound books

a couple pages inside  "Cloudy with a chance of stars"  I love that phrase


some sketches, plus magazine clippings and paint.  I know these are a bit cartoony.

These are some animal drawings that I drew after a lesson on Carla Sonheim's workshop.


In progress painting.. I have been using drawing inks, acrylic craft paints, and prismacolor markers

These are all great! I had never heard of the phrase Cloudy with a chance of Stars. I like that.

These are great- and "Cloudy with a Chance of Stars" might just have to find it's way into an art project for my little students :)
Also I love the colors of your WIP- very intense!
Happy PPF (a day late ;))
