Purple Pattern Bookmark
Friday, March 1st, 2013
This wee bookmark is the same size as yesterday’s, but with a very different subject. This time I started with Sharpie to doodle in skulls and curlicues, and then I took a purple ink pen and drew in the long lines. This one’s drawn on the shiny side of a scrap of comic backing board, so I took my finger and smeared the purple ink, giving a lovely mottled texture while the actual drawn lines still remained visible.

Above, you can see the bookmark up close, including a little bit of sunshine off the shiny Sharpie and scored-in purple pen lines near the top. Below, you can see it hanging bravely with the big green book, evoking the ’80s.
