Some Ideas Get Lodged in Your Head: Working in Series—and On Being Dangerous

Above: A a warm-up page spread from a smallish, 5 x 7 inch journal I made with Arches Text Wove (Velin). I've been carrying this journal around because it is small and doesn't add to the bulk of what I usually have to carry. Click on the image to view an enlargement. This week I'm […]
