All Wrapped Up

My participation in the International Fake Journal Month has consumed me. My creative sketching and painting energy is all wrapped up in my hand-bound fake journal where young Hoshi Banks, a college engineering student, has taken an internship position on the Moon. At “present” she is on a shuttle, about to orbit the Moon and descend to the Japanese Lunar surface station Kaguya. Hoshi has been sleeping quite a bit on this journey, the reasons for which she is (finally) becoming suspicious. There are three other interns in the program and Hoshi is growing desperate to tell them she thinks the aerospace corporation which has organized this expedition to Kaguya is not what it seems!  I wonder what lies in store for them on the Moon?

Have a look through the pages of my fake journal, Kaguya’s Gift, and let me know what you think! Maybe you will want to participate next year?

Speculation

Michael, Fringe’s Child Observer, just before he undergoes a brain link with Walter. Season 5, Ep. 10, “Anomaly XB-6783746” • Noodler’s Bulletproof Black, PPBP, Schmincke gouache on 400 series Strathmore hardbound sketchbook. 12/26/12

Still on my Fringe binge and savoring the speculation on which answers to the myriad conundrums that the final episode will actually reveal. When it is finished, I will certainly miss Fringe’s characters and the outrageous yet believable future fiction. The prospect of a glossy movie deal for these actors sounds wonderful for them, but the plot would raise a thousand new questions which I doubt they would answer by the end of the film. Such a fantastic tease, entertainment!

After Fringe’s finale, I will move solemnly onward, in search of my next guilty pleasure television sketch fixation. Until then, I will sketch during the final show and watch it again (and again) over the weekend — keeping the episode on the dvr until satisfied that I have wrung a drawing from every sketch worthy scene.
