As we're shortly coming up to Halloween, I thought you might like to see one of the spreads from the Art Journalling class I'm teaching.
This one is a vampire, from my Zombie journal - in the Faces&Figures section on 26 October. The face is heavily crackled, with lots of encrustation and a strip of flat-back crystals, dripped red inks (blood).
The quotation is by Virginia Woolf:
The beauty of the world which is so soon to perish, has two edges, one of laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.
I haven't yet made up my mind whether this needs any further wording. I purposely made the writing loose and slightly illegible. I think it kind of speaks for itself....
