Michelle Ward's February Crusade is #48 Been There Done That. This one is the second in her "Evidence" series where she encourages us to use our journals as a place for documentation.
I decided to create a spread about a play I attended recently; Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Ernest" which was organized by the local English Drama Group.
Here is the break-down of my evidence and thoughts for anybody who wants to forensically study this:
- The parking ticket proves I managed to park the hub's car in town although I did hit a metal gate with the bumper. But just once.
- I bought an entrance card from a scalper and for a moment while assembling this spread I thought it had the wrong date on it! Turns out it was a ticket for the night I actually attended, but this made me realize I should quit worrying about speaking bad German and instead be a little more observant in my transactions.
- The use of images from the flier incriminates me. This is direct evidence that I did not return it as promised, and am instead a thieving scoundrel.
- My friend Cat, the director, can host an amazingly well run and entertaining event.
- Some Germans can speak better English than myself, and I'm a native speaker! Dang, that's impressive!
- Performance artists are fun, and a man playing a very convincing woman's role always steals the show.
- I decided I really like speech bubbles as a compositional element.
- Although I like the yellow dots around the bubbles, I regret the long skinny quote in yellow.
- I like peach and black together.
It was sort of cool to compare this artwork with my previous outcome from C45. I'm now aware of my speech bubble attraction and want to explore that a little further...
For now *insert exclamation point in bubble* THANK YOU Michelle for another fun creative adventure!!
