All Wrapped Up

040913 miyoho tray

Miyoho serves food and beverage to the entire shuttle crew en route to Kaguya Lunar Station.
Micron Pigma pen, watercolor on random scrap of paper, glued into the approx. 8×8″ hand bound journal filled with Strathmore 500 Series mixed media paper and Canson Mi-Teintes paper.

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?

Window Seat

Digital composite of watercolor and ink on Moleskine notebook and Strathmore watercolor paper.
27 May 2012.

This sketch is a composite, digitally combined with Awash in Babies. I showed the “plain Jane” version without the whiney babies to a few of my friends and they all agreed that the sketch was incomplete without a monster on the wing, like in Twilight Zone’s “Nightmare at 22,000 Feet.” Naturally, I took their suggestion, but only as far as cutting, pasting and LAUGHING at the result. Traveling with fussy little ones must be a nachtmare, but being seated in a plane near one of them can be excruciating.


Smooth Cruise

Watercolor and ink on 5″x8″ Moleskine notebook. 21 March 2012.
Had an unusually smooth cruise that morning, flying from Portland, ME, to Dayton, Ohio.
Passed my short layover sketching at the end of the C concourse of Detroit Metro Airport, waiting for my connecting flight.
