The year is winding down and the book is getting fat.
The pages are reflecting this in a literal way,
piling on colors, darker, thicker, visually weightier.
Pencil on paint on marker on washi on paper on pen on paper on page.
Over and over; On and on.
The lines are getting tangled up.
The shapes and the words are enmeshed.
Amping up the contrast entails adding more
(collage scraps of old photos & dictionary pages)
more thick paint – more collage –
thickening up the page – and increasing the heft.
All part of this curious adventure that is, a page a week, 2015.
