Collaborative Book with Angelique Price

Artist Angelique Price and I are working on two collaborative books together.  I built the books and we are both taking turns painting and drawing in them (with an occasional pop up).  

They are identical in build, approximately 12"x 13.5" All REuse of course.  Canvas covers with two folds of watercolor paper mounted on either side of the cover.  Making a total of three page layouts.

 This is one of the books in progress.  I am documenting them as they evolve.  I didn't do so hot with photographing them in till recently, so we have made a few layers here.

We hope to have them on display at Handmade and Bound in October at Watkins College of Art, Design and Film.  I will share as the process goes on.  I think we are both enjoying the fun of collaborating with another artist.

I was at Watkins today for a incoming freshman resource fair.  One of my favorite people Liz Coleman from the Downtown Library was right beside me with a Robert Motherwell collaborative with Octavio Paz, a poet.  We talked about how artist and poets don't work together as often.  I want to do something similar.  Mmmmmm.  More collaborations for sure.
