notes and doodles

I discovered these and many more beautiful illustrations by super tallented Jenny Bowers today via selvedge magazine. If I could draw like this I would fill stacks of journals, my own handmade library, piled high with felt pen decorated pages.

I used to make nonsense story books as a kid, using my Dads computer paper, fastening the pages with sellotape then scribbling with pencils and pens. I loved screwing up the paper then listening to the crunch as you smoothed it flat again. I still love crunching paper. I scrunched some when there was no one around at work today.

My daughter loves scrunching paper, too. And, she's always making little books and journals out of any paper she can get her hands on.
