We can call that the many faces of me. I think we all have many faces that look different, but generally speaking we are still the same person that has many facets? That sounds about right.
The reason that has been stuck in my head is because I was doing this art journal project which is to stick my media player on shuffle and the first song that plays is the song I create a page for. The song that came out for this one was Be All End, All by Anthrax.
Years ago when I was taking classes at Cypress JC, I was sitting in my car waiting for my next class and I had this tape playing. It wasn't super loud but my window was down and I guess this guy walking by heard it and looked it at me. He did this weird bro dude smirk and said "what was a pretty sweet little thing like me doing listening to crap like that?"
Before I could formulate a response he walked off but that one left me speechless for awhile. I guess because I have always listened to pretty much any music that moves me in some way, or makes me feel or think etc, it never occured to me that I had to LOOK a certain way to listen to a certain music.
I know there was the various music factions in high school... punk rock and the metalheads and pop peoples and etc etc. But I listened to it all. Dress wise? At school I was pretty plain - out of school probably more Lita Ford than Madonna but still I guess I never fit into any one category. My first concert was Oingo Boingo but my second was Def Leppard and Telsa followed by Sting and then Heart. So you can see I am all over the musical map and never much cared if my dress and or persona matched it.
This story has no point - I hope you weren't waiting for one LOL Other then I guess the old, don't judge a book by its cover, is a nice moral to the story. Oh and I still have no idea what I would have said to the bro dude who called me sweetie. Back then, I guess I probably would have just flipped him off LOLOL
This is the page I did in my art journal to Anthrax - Be All, End All. I still think it's a great song.
Awhile ago I saw some really fabulous art journals, done on a smaller scale than I am used to doing myself. They were in a leathery travel journal, I absolutely love ALL THE JOURNALS and was quite happy with this one. It smells delicious and comes with a clip and some plastic sleeves as well as refillable paper sections. I like the heavier craft paper as it holds up well with all of the various media I use.
It is a great size for a page a day art journaling and keeps the creativity rolling! (Did I mention the delicious leathery smell?) It doesn't take up much space either, so that is a bonus if you don't have a lot of room.
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
