New Art Journal In The Making

Half way into meditation last night, a strong remembrance suddenly popped into my head: MY OLD LETRASET SHEETS! My mind ran amok – I hadn't used them for years – could they still be in that white box? – No, I had moved them – Or had I? Sitting on my cushion, trying to maintain focus, the desire to shoot up and see if I would be able to find them was screaming for my attention :-)

I didn't cave! I sat – with my raging thoughts – until my little bell rang. Then I ran!

A mix of joy, nostagia and routine as I sat down to work the letters into my sketchbook. I got this bundle of arbitrary letters when I was in Art School (awww!); back then, they weren't nearly old enough to be cool vintage—just old crap. Good thing one tends to be a bit of a hoader. (More on that later).

(»Tiden« means the time in Danish).

  2. Nej, Christine, du skulle bare vide hvor mange letraset-ark jeg havde for nogle år siden. Jeg købte en kæmpe bunke hos Tutein og Koch, men de røg ud efter nogle år fordi jeg ikke vidste hvad jeg skulle bruge dem til!!!! Suk. Den er så fin din collage.��

    1. Åh nej! :-) Jeg kan blive helt ærgerlig på dine vegne. Oh suk! Jeg aner ikke engang om man kan købe dem nogen steder længere.

    2. De var et restsalg og de ville ikke få letraset ark igen fordi det ikke var noget man brugte mere, fik jeg at vide. Surt, men man skal jo ikke græde over spildt letraset, eller?

    3. Ihvertfald ikke. Man kan jo ikke gemme alting. Men det er altså også sket for mig nogle gange; det med at smide ud for ganske kort efter at tænke: DOH! Dén kunne jeg godt have brugt nu. Jaja. Pyt. :-)

  3. Great ideas always surface when they shouldn't, like when in meditation. Glad you could use it afterwards. And the yellow is so happy, thanks for sharing Christine!

      Yes, in the oddest of moments—often just before falling asleep too :-)
