Today I am going to give you an idea to collaborate with another artist or person. I will start with how I decided to do this myself.
A few weeks ago I found a wonderful diary/art book written by a young woman that was not finished in a thrift store. She had written the book for her love while she was away from him. Her poetry, drawings and pressed flora touched my heart and it seemed sad to leave the book at the thrift store so I bought it.
Her thoughts were so beautiful and very similar to my own art diaries I decided to make it a collaboration piece. The book was never finished and had almost half the pages empty. I wrote my own feelings and did my own drawings to the piece. It has become part of me as well as the young lady who wrote it and brings so much joy to me when I read it.
Perhaps some of you would like to do this type of collaboration to see how it turns out. Start with a lovely sketch pad, one artists does their own work on every other page then another finishes by adding their own work to the empty pages. Remember to start the book with a title page to give one another credit for the work.
Maybe if enough artists put these together one could get a showing at a local gallery. I would love to see and read what ever came out of these types of work.
What do you think about this idea?
