quick sketches and fake journal 2014
|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.

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.
