Quiet Book for Dimas by AtarAtis
Quiet Book for Dimas
Inspiration hit... and I suddenly felt the urge to make a quiet book for my cousin Dimas.

Once upon a time I remember my mom made one for my brother. I had no memory of what was in there except for things that could be opened and closed. Having some ideas in my head though I started off, and while I went a long, as I tend to do, things became more interesting, I made up some stuff and it got slightly more complicated.

I learned a lot though! And again have to thank my mom for all the sewing background she instilled in me by letting me play with her scraps when I was younger, showing me how to do different stitches by hand and generally solving things creatively herself.

I forgot to take a picture of the last page; namely the family house witha family member behind each window. I hope I can still get a decent picture and will add it as soon as I have it.

For now I hope you all enjoy. 
I know the new owner does and that was surely the most important part!

As always, ideas, feedback and comments welcome!

Almost a Sharpie Guitar by AtarAtis
Almost a Sharpie Guitar
So one of my friends asked if I could draw on his -black- guitar. First I declined- thinking it would be cool but having no time and not much inspiration and it being a black guitar with a white marker...
But he insisted it didn't have to be the greatest piece of art I ever made and it was only a cheap guitar he wanted to travel with and that he would REALLY like me to draw something on there. 

I accepted... and boy did I hate the guitar for a while glaring at me from it's corner, demanding inspiration, demanding a plan of some sort. So I sketched a few crows (he wanted crows) and I looked at my doodles and eventually just started. 

I warn you all- white markers are a pain in the ...! I had some accidents, neatly covered up again by patterns (most of them), I had a big accident, making for a bit of a messy pattern on the top- but it was the only way to remedy the spatters of white that suddenly leaked out of the marker. And finally, after it being half done for a while, I decided it needed to be finished yesterday.

This is the result. He was quite content with his newly decorated guitar- I, being the artists that I am- like some parts of it, but definitely feel the need to do a couple more for practice! Possibly with a sharpie so detail becomes easier, and possibly on some very old guitars. Then again, maybe I should just do more art. What is that with growing up that art gets pushed in the corner?!

All comments and ideas welcome!

P.S.: for those of you who are interested: details in scraps:
