A very different kind of page for me (MYPL p.18), but I was determined to stretch my wings.
It began with the upside down hat, which of course needed something pulled from it. Owls. Wiser than rabbits. Maybe just one owl. And typed text. Typed on tissue. What to do to offset the sterility? Funky block letters. As imperfect as I can make them without crossing into the "messy as crap" zone. In pencil. God how I've missed pencils! Graphite is good. Scribbled in with markers.
If you have an old typewriter at your disposal, I urge you to use it! I have my mother's old Royal. It's cast iron and heavier than the table it sits on. I moved it to my work table a couple of years ago so that I'd use it. Finally! I can't believe it took me this long.
I didn't realize the date until I went to schedule this post, so I changed the title. Happy birthday, Daddy!
