"When I feel lost, I am not at all."
So I've uploaded some random old pages... (Not sure why but I've been in the mood to upload old things - maybe I just want the excuse to look through them.) They're from a book that only two people have ever seen before! <3
It was a book I started when I fell for my husband. And while now it's mainly writing, back in the day of free time it use to be a bit art journaly. I skipped all the pages of just writing. (There's a good deal of that.) But be warned! It's full of mushy love guts.

I also finished up The Saint and The Snake. (which is a big deal for me... that one is over 2 years old. heh.) But I finished it in time to give it to my friend who is helping me out with a show coming up. Yay! On the 5th of June I'll have a few pieces (7 or so) up in an even called The Marietta Art Walk. The event lasts all weekend, but the work will stay up for the entire month.

(again) I know.
I'm having some design problems. I'm working on getting the illustration list all set up. (It turns out - that beside printing out the top 30 - they want a list of ALL the illustrations I'm planning on using. Pretty much page for page.)
Here's where I'm torn - I have several different size books.
I can plan to make the 8x10 and blow the smaller pages larger? (I have no idea if they'll still "look" right?)
I can make the book smaller. 5x7 (I think.) And shrink the bigger pages down? (I'm assuming on the specific page that details may get lost.)
Or I can do the 5x7 and turn the larger pages on their side. Which would put the fold of the binding right across the middle of the page. :/ Also... that would pretty much kill larger spreads.
Thoughts? Anyone book design savy? Any input or ideas I might have missed are more than appreciated.
And lastly, to my lovely writer friends (and any friend really...) I'm so close to finishing the introduction, but I wouldn't mind some feed back on it. I want to make sure it's not too corny. Too cliche. And not too other horrible things. But I'm not going to post it. (eek!) So I'll note it if you're willing/interested in reading my horrible writing and helping me be better.

As always, you guys are wonderful.
