Shadows of the World (full)
Here is the fold-out page in its full form, fully unfolded.
Shadows of the World (folded)
What started as a simple (-ish) collage in the evening of a particularly rough day ended up too big to be contained in my sketchbook, so it became my first interactive/fold-out page. This is the folded-in form.
Setting a Light in the Darkness
The first page in my 2013 Sketchbook Project sketchbook ‘Chronicle.’
Another collage page in my pocket molie (with original art by Kinuko Y. Craft and Chris Butler).
Long Night’s Moon
The full moon adjoining the winter solstice is sometimes called the long night’s moon; this page is inspired by that idea and the point of the year where we’re halfway out of the dark (at least north of the equator, that is).
Faces in the Dark Keep Me Awake at Night
A page that combines my love of the season with the concept of sleeplessness.
The prince of darkness, Vincent Price. Brush pen and markers
House built in 1776.
We wisited out former seaside landlady (leftmost) and my Mother-in-law (centre) and wife (right) had a long chat with her while I was painting.
The trouble was that there were almost no light when I did it. It reminds me of a Python’s sketch where a father-in-law (sleaping in the bedroom with his daughter and son-in-law) is, for 20-odd years, making a ship model in the dark, which of course additionally anoyes the couple. When they finally switch the light on – his model is actually a wrack. Therefore, do not be harsh on judging the outcome of my little darkness effort!
BTW. The roof of this houre has been risen some time during the last century
