"Take a Peek..."

..at my latest W.I.P...Work In Progress.
I have joined in on another Moleskine Exchange
but this time it is at Illustrated ATCs.
It will be an 8 way artist exchange of
the small Japanese fold Moleskine sketchbooks.
Each book will have its own theme chosen by
each individual artist.
The theme I have chosen is
more commonly known in English as
The Day of the Dead...a Mexican folk festival celebrated
the first couple of days of November.
My book will honor the spirit of the lives of those
who have gone before me
and will include many of the traditional Mexican
artifacts and symbols
(such as sugar skulls, calavera catrinas, and offerendas)
associated with this
unique fall celebration.
My due date for mailing is February 1st...
so if I am not around blogland for the next week or so
you know exactly what I am doing.
I am really excited to share the progress of this
art exchange with you throughout the coming year.
I should have my own book back
by mid October...just in time
to celebrate this festive Mexican holiday.
