Covid Man and Book Print

 

This is my tag for the current theme at Tag Tuesday - Book Print. I like using text as a background for tags and today, I reduced one of my recent  line drawings and printed it on a small book page .... as you can see,  the book's chapter is entitled "Of Holy Living and Dying ( from The Book of Books) .  I thought this was appropriate as this 'Covid man' drawing depicts Nature happily thriving while man appears to be "unravelling " at the edges of body and mind... 

Original drawing - Wilma Simmons

And here are some other tags on book print backgrounds - these are free motion stitched "Nature" portraits done earlier in the year.

  3. Wow ~ That Covid man image is really thought provoking. I kind of feel like I have someone plucking the thoughts right out of my head sometimes too. I started making a book page collage like you showed previously and will have to decide what to add to the front next. Enjoy your week

    1. Thanks - I think we all feel as though we are unravelling a bit sometimes. Have fun with the collage.
