An art journal page just for the fun of it this month, no soul searching or deep and meaningful journalling, just a little spookiness for Halloween.
This is my response to a recent prompt on A Year In The Life Of An Art Journal:
THE PROMPT: Eye opener
THE SONG: Why are we sleeping - Soft Machine
Written Lyrics HERE
I loved the lyrics to the chosen song, and in particular I found this verse fascinating, if rather creepy:
people are watching - people who stare - waiting for something that's already there
That part, along with the mention of a mask, made me think of one of my own occasional nightmares, masked white faces with eyes like dark pools, just staring at me silently. shudder! :D
So, a halloween page it had to be.
Other than the alcohol ink for the blood dripping from his eyes, everything else on here was spray painted so it all came together quickly.
Just looking at the page is freaking me out a little, I think I'll close my art journal and put it away ....
AJED : 100/365
(Although I have clearly fallen well short of art journalling EVERY day this year - I'm chuffed to hit day 100 with this page!)
