|Still stuck on this representation of Philosophy from|
Boethius Consolation of Philosophy
|Its starting to seep into other things I see, |
like this bust at the Met last week
|If you can't beat them...|
|I incorporated the crown print I just finished to make a fusion of "Sophia"|
and the tarot card "Papessa/ high priestess"
(which plays a role in an audio book I just finished
"The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern - recommend :))
|approximately life-sized + 10% with my fingers for scale|
|it will have a flame (spiritual knowledge)|

|I made a special trip to the store for this paper. |
Even though it's too small for the whole sleeve,

|drapery of the sleeves|
|This was my work station -|
the level of mess is directly proportional to the amount of fun I had :)
(It was awesome! There is still room in the class for any local
readers who want to join in the fun.)
|class 1 - paste paper - look what I made :)|
swirly stripes, visual yum!
I've been thinking that a book is a type of algorithm - it provides a familiar blueprint for viewing. I'm enjoying making relief prints, but want to take another step to provide a "built-in context" for them...
