I am doing a Round Robin with some mighty talented ladies, and of course, the first pages I get to make are for wonderful Ingrid Dijkers. I spent a lot of time last year studying her tunnel books, they just blew me away. You can see them on her website: www.ingriddijkers.com.
Her theme for this Round Robin is "Circles".
For some reason, Circle crops popped into my mind and off I went:
The text reads: If you eat Circle crop foods, and on the next page, ... will you see Martians?
So here is the next page:
The painting is based on an aboriginal design. I guess after 16 years in Australia, I really developed a taste for that style.
I did a cutout as well, to give it depth. You pull on the black button, to reveal the depth within. Or something like that. lol
We were to decorate the front and back of the page, so I used a circle stencil, what else!
With psychedelic bangles... (No comments!)
Ingrid also made a fantastic page for me. My book is the "Imaginary journey with Nick Bantock", which you can see here.
Here is the page she made for my book, on her blog.
I'm really happy with my book. Two years before it comes back to me, as 20 artists will be working in it over that time!!!!
