"If trashpo has taught me anything its that every windblown street corner and cyclone fence is a veritable Dick Blick of free art materials."

Ah Diane, you did work on one… but not on that page.  I have SOOO many contributors in TLP 6 that it messes up the page to write them all in. GRR

But in another idea, following on.  I found a trashed book that had illustrations that remind me of doodles and I whited out the writing and began doodling into/with it. It is 32 pages long, I think. 

The cover looks like this now: 

I didn't have a plan about who I was going to send it to, assumed it wuld go to DK but then I thought if I could get 8 people who would do their page and send it back to me I could reassemble it and make a book.  I am not sure if it doesn't cry out for text too.  The title is so maudlin. Anyway. I am open to anything so if you are interested in getting a page or more let me know!
