The Birthday Book - Page 33 by SalHunter The Birthday Book - Page 33 by SalHunter
(Protozoan Microdream)

In 2009, I was given a little drawing book for my birthday ... it's a spiral bound sketch book with a pretty cover. Not something I would buy for myself ... but a welcome gift none the less. I decided to fill it with little sketches and drawings as a stream of consciousness.

This is page 33 ... HB and 2B pencil ... about 7 cms by 14 cms ... 6 days. This one was surprisingly easy after the last one and such fun to do!

See the rest of the book here - [link]

I love all the ridges & reticulations in this one: the repetitive patterns reminiscent of ribcages and teeth. That was a lot of 'r' alliteration. :P

But seriously.. gorgeous piece, I love the multiple layers of texture you created in this one; in that aspect it stands apart from the rest of the sketchbook.

Ooooh what a fantastic comment rolling in rrrr. :D

Yes it does stand apart ... almost annoyingly so ... but there's always one isn't there!

Thanks my friend! :hug:

You are brilliant ..so are you making a book too?

:blush: ... :hug:

I'm currently writing text to go with the images ... it is a bit like dream interpretation. I'm not sure what half of them mean so I'm waffling and writing poetry! Some of them already have little haiku poems here on DA ...

I started to think about a proper book when my kids started arguing over who would get it and which pages they would share out ... If I don't make a book so that each one gets a copy, it will become a totured and dismembered thing instead of the whole that it is meant to be. If I'm doing it for them, I might as well make it available for everyone! It seemed to make sense to me at the time!
