Artworks on Book Pages

Whoa! Loads of great entries for the junk doodle comp we ran... thanks for taking part!!

So what next? I'm in a bit of a creative slump trying to find ways of getting my creative head back on track so I've continued on the 'non-precious' doodle route to find a way of freeing my work up again. While browsing Flickr I came across (restless::things) brilliant group of 'Artworks on Book Pages' - I love the way some people respond to textures, typography and page features... doodles on preprinted materials always seems to have an added dimension or weight to them... give it a go yourself, see how it influences your work :)

Q: What happens when left and right brain meet on a blind date?

A: Your Fresh and Fabulous Illustrations!

I\\\\\\\'m now newly inspired, as an artist, printmaker and writer, to rescue preprinted materials and turn them into ready-mades.

Back soon,
Nicole Rigets

I have boxes and boxes of books and have been thinking of clearing some of them out. I think a few of them have just found a higher destiny.

Just received a big box of used children's books from ebay- was not sure what to do with them, and I think now I am... Doodle City, here we come... I have done some art in books before, and some cutting into books, but these ones take it to a new and inspiring level...
