Butterfly Booklet by TigrrBoy
Butterfly Booklet
Both the front and back cover of this booklet have an image of a giant swallowtail butterfly. Prismacolor colored pencils were used to draw the image. The pages between were cut from an autobiography written by Hillary Clinton using a scroll saw. The front and back cover as well as the spine between the pages was glued with PVA bookbinding glue. The book has three fishing lines attached to it so that it can be suspended in the air with the wings stretching upward.

Some times the only consolation is knowing when a shitty day comes to an end, a new shitty day will take its place. At least there's that.
Another one of my schemes to ramp up a small business hit a dead end today. Failures and delays plague every plan I've come up with lately. What's more, I'm tired of hearing that sugar-coated placebo garbage some business motivators pitch about needing to grind through 99 failures to get to that 100th success. History is littered with corpses of those who gave it their all yet never succeeded and ended up penniless. 
Spin-Doctoring a Propaganda Leaflet by TigrrBoy
Spin-Doctoring a Propaganda Leaflet
Another part of the parachute project. This is the propaganda leaflet I spread around on the floor around the dispersal device. The basis for this image came from a leaflet labeled as CBA-44 that was used during World War II. I subverted the text from its original to suit my specific project needs.

Why did I create a parachute propaganda deployment device with propaganda leaflets? Am I going to send out propaganda about training paratroopers to go nuke My Little Pony? I could only hope. Over a hundred fucking hours of work on a complex mixed media project and I get a meh response while five minute cocktail napkin MLPs are pulling down rave reviews. Yep, the world is normal.

You're welcome Butter-Lie. I rather liked the stylish textural feel your self portrait had. Have a fantastic week too.

Thanks. :) The full sized drawing is messing with my head though. Gotta get it moving faster because it's due next week.

Late reply here on my part due to lots of things going on. My drawing project with the paratroopers is getting a bit stressful as there is a real possibility for failure with the parachute design/implementation.

Trying to get a paper parachute to look right is not easy. Doing it with a 3 foot diameter parachute doesn't make it any easier.

I've already spent a full day on the framework for the chute and I'm not even sure it will hold paper. And I haven't even tackled the drawing aspects yet. What a project.

How are things going for you?
