And today – for the, er, biweekly alternate bookcover/creativity exercise – tadah, an alternate cover for ‘Another World, Another Love’!
This cover uses a detail from one of my wolf drawings. And I think the pseudo-abstraction and colour-scheme give it a definite ‘mid-1970s middle-school textbook’ vibe, which is sort of cute.
Fifth chapter of ‘Art and Soul, Reloaded’, and my efforts at the tasks set by Ms Grout. Wow. Seems like this is really a thing, at this point.
This week’s chapter is called – oh, fortuitously – Dare To Be Mediocre. And the essay part, the bit of inspiration from Ms Grout before the actual tasks, is about how if you let go of an anxious worry about producing perfect results, then you’re free to fly, to take action.
Oh, my. Has she seen my wolfy drawings? It’s like this chapter was written just for me!
Moving on – right along! The main task for this week’s chapter is, I quote, ‘Come up with the title (just the title) of your forthcoming memoir’.
Ehhh. I do love a memoir. By almost anyone. Don’t matter if you’re a filing clerk with a couple of pugs and your most exciting hobby is joining the local Gilbert & Sullivan society. Still love ’em.
Ehhh, so, – ‘Under The Bus’, I think. Yeah. Yeah. We’ll go with that.
I guess now is the time for that promised simply appalling wolf drawin’, right? Seein’ as how it fits with this week’s subject, and all. Boy, it’s difficult to pick the least worst, though. They’re all pretty bad.
Hey! As a thumbprint it doesn’t look too bad! I’ll have you know.
