Monkey See

Monkey See
Monkey See is the cover for my second signature in a journal that will have three signatures.....one completed this summer in Orly Avineri's workshop on Whidbey Island; an RR journal making the rounds; and this signature that is almost completed.

The light is a bit dark on this scan.  When the signature is closed and bound the monkeys will no longer be together.  The one on the right will be the front monkey.

A student of mine gave me a napkin with peacock feathers on it which finished this spread.  I am kind of excited to complete this journal as I know how the cover will be finished.  I found some plywood strips...veneer....on the beach during the Whidbey Island class which will be perfect and a remembrance of one very cool and foggy excursion with the class one afternoon.

I love this spread- and how cool to use a napkin.

I like the rather dark feel - the way the monkeys are looking back, it makes it all seem a bit sinister!
