The piece was going to be entitled Extra Blame, because of some of the text on a vintage book page, but in the end I decided to call it Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Basket. Come to think of it, that would also be a good title for one of Lynne Ciacco's weekly maxims, wouldn't it? (How about it, Lynne?)
So here's the collage; enjoy!
Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Basketingredients: image transfers, Chinese hell notes, vintage book pages, map scraps, inkjet prints, metallic ink, other ephemera, watercolor pencils, artist pens
In addition, I wanted to mention that Mo Crow has posted a bit about her process on her wonderful illustration blog, It's Crow Time. She has also posted some links to process-oriented posts on other blogs. These are well worth checking out, as are her amazing drawings.
I will be posting the next section of Book of Dreams very soon, so be sure to check back.
Happy Fourth of July to all my American friends!
