Today’s short narrative practice… original poem and art/illustration to follow:
Danny Joe – By Sue Clancy
There was an old dog named Danny Joe
who played a lively banjo
and sang folk songs
about rights and wrongs
and all the things a body should know
art illustration to go with a poem by Sue Clancy called “Danny Joe” – the art is pen and ink on handmade paper
As you know from previous posts I’ve been working on new artwork for my upcoming art exhibits. In this post I shared a design I’d drawn in my sketchbook. Then in the post here is a photo of me making one of the papers that I’d need towards the new artwork design I’d drawn in my sketchbook. After days of dyeing, and cutting out a gajillion more pieces of handmade paper – today in this photo I’ve cut out the shapes of a dogs teeth out of paper and am in the act of gluing that cut paper into the dogs mouth. I now have sympathy for dentist’s.
