Baudelaire, pen sketch and notes

But what is an eternity of damnation compared to an infinity of pleasure in a single second?
- Baudelaire, Paris Spleen IX

This week flew by and I got a lot done! I really enjoyed my reading and class lectures on Baudelaire and Nietzsche.

The latter half of the week found me exploding with the desire to draw, so while listening to the lectures I drew. The notes meander in and out of the sketches.

April is Fake Journal month and I'll be participating again this year. I spent the week thinking about who I would be and have settled on journalling as an amateur naturalist. So come April, I won't be journalling as Juana but as a fictional character. I'm still working out the details. If doing a fake journal intrigues you, head on over to the fake journal website run by Roz. The link is in the sidebar.

I also wanted a journal that would be dedicated to the fake journal and made another one using the Japanese stab stitch binding.

For the cover, I dug into my stash of papers and cloth and found a vintage Japanese Shibori cloth that I bought years ago when I was living in Japan. It's a beautiful blue with a fan design.
