i have a massive texture making fetish.  dunno why, but i do.  so, i think every tuesday that i’m in the mood will be texture tuesday.  a freeby texture i’ll offer up for use in your physical or digital art, iffin you’re into that sort of thing.  (i have NO idea where “iffin” came from, sorry.)

free texture, photoshop texture, paper, sky, free images

BUT that is nowhere as cool as pulp in my hands… yesterday, i received not one but TWO of the books for our pulp redux collaboration.  i have both lisa jurist’s book (mudhound primitives) and lisa sarsfield’s book (lucky dip).  yes, two pulp books in my hot little hands in unison!!  omg, they are AMAZING!  i gently unpackaged each of them, one at a time, to get a good look at them before carefully wrapping them back up.  they are so fat!!  and i don’t mean in that weird teenage cool way.  they are thick as hell!  lisa s’s measures in just about 4 inches thick (two more people to work in it) and lisa j’s book is just over SIX inches thick.  wonder how they will look when i’m done…

…this is how they look pre-alicia-contributions…

lisa sarsfield’s book (i’m working on this one first as one more person will need it after me before pulp #1 comes to a sad end).  her theme is “labyrinth”:

and this is lisa jurist’s book.  i’m working on hers second as i’m the final contributor and i don’t want to hold anyone up.  her title is “roots, beneath the layers”:

(and happy birthday to my husby!  he’s 31 today.  woots!)
