Jokers and Jesters for April Fool's Day

Drawing in my index card book.
Sharpie marker, extra fine point.

Page of an altered book spread in
a book of seasons and holidays.
Gesso over scrapbook paper, Sharpie
marker drawing, and some
clippings of architecture from an
art history book.  The jester is 
a photocopy of a drawing that I did,
and the arch is actually raised from
the background with pieces of
adhesive foam.

Opposite page of spread, featuring
drawings of medieval style

The original drawing in pencil.
I photocopied, darkened with pen,
and reduced it in size for the 
altered book spread.

A sketch in one of my journals
of an idea for an art doll...
haven't attempted this one yet.

May all your jokes today
be fun and funny!


  1. I love the jester. I have to admit, you did a marvelous job with all these images. I so love what you did, and I am not fooled by April Fool's Day!

  2. Wonderful drawings, there's something refreshing about going back to basic materials.

  3. These are fantastic. My son inadvertently spilled the beans that he was planning something for tomorrow. The little stinker.

  4. oh, your drawings and design elements are wonderful. I love these. Thanks for sharing!

    I keep getting waylayed from working in my journal. I'm going to have to hurry and try to catch up!

  5. These black and white pages are beautiful, so glad I had some time to stop by today!

  6. Marvelous, what a web site it is! This blog gives helpful data to us, keep it up.
