My friend Anne, awesome buddy and mehndi artist extraordinaire, traded me some excellent henna for a book. She and a friend are re-reading Moby-Dick and are going to pass a journal back and forth as they do so. So, I made her a Moby-Dick book and I am going to join in on the fun. I have never actually read any Melville, except for the time I had to read Billy Budd in high school, probably at gunpoint, and thought it was unintentionally hysterical. I have high hopes for Moby, though. At the very least it will earn me some literary karma, which I desperately need after reading not one but THREE Charlaine Harris books. Also, one time I think I accidentally read a Nora Roberts book. My excuse was that I had a 104.3 degree fever at the time.
Anyway, I think this came out pretty cute for a killer albino sperm whale:
These are the endleaves. My friend Meg convinced me to buy this cute little whale hole punch for the book, because it seemed wholly inappropriate for the theme. I concurred. Also, in this picture, you can see just how bad my dermatitis is.
Remember kiddos, if you like my handmade journals, I take commissions. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll talk. Just as a reminder too, I also take commissions for art, fanart, etc. etc. I will not, however, come to your house and play the ukelele for your amusement.
