Last Spring, two round robin journals were launched through the ArtistsJournals group at Yahoo Groups. The first one — Round Robin #1 (aka RR #1) — returned to me first. It’s pages have been scanned and posted.
Round Robin Journal #2 had a slightly rockier start. The first person I sent it to… she kept it and was never heard from again.
So, I quickly replaced it with RR #2b, which had a few lulls but eventually returned to me. However, I did take time to start this journal with a hasty, two-page collage sequence.
In my collages, I’m always intrigued by two things: How expressive eyes are, and a sense of motion (or stillness) in the combined images.
The left-side page is a collection of women’s faces, looking in different directions with different attitudes. The right-side page includes a couple of images of fast-moving clouds, a leg to suggest motion, and faces contrasting enthusiasm and a sense of whimsy.
After that, I sent the journal to Alley Hauldren, who took the book on a journey. Click here to see those next pages.
