dear diary, 1988

My first diary illustration (here's my original post):



The best day in my old diary comes right near the start, and this WAS a good day, I had that boom box for years. Strangely, I've forgotten what the woman looked like and I had to make it up, even though I went on to study art with her for a couple years and I still think she was wonderful. I just remember she was Hungarian and seemed rather exotic, but I only remember things she did, like pulling roadkill crows from her filing cabinet so I could draw their wing structure. Her name was Ilona Rittler and she was cool.

Paisley
C'mon, don't tell me you drew the paisley? Fess up - is it a pasted photocopy? She looks great in that frock.

Re: Paisley
'Tis true, I drew it! :D But I got a kind of sytem going with a brush pen and a regular pen, so it wasn't quite as labour intensive as it looks.

Thanks, Shoo!

Am...
really enjoying these.

Don't think you were a dork at all. (Clearly want to 'protect' small-you from big-you, don't I)

I remember telling you about that contest. . .I was always so in awe of your art ability--since I have none! SEKM
