Just made it - seasons greetings and "bonne chance"
























Hoping you have a merry Christmas and a very healthy, happy 2017. I have just finished another small artist book "bonne chance" before this hectic part of the year. Only just made it for 2016.
The images respond to quotes from some of my favourite artists on the subject of chance. The A4 sized book uses Kraft paper and mixed media and each of the 10 images refers to some aspects of the quoted artist work that resonates with me. 
I hope you enjoy the little sample for you to view.

Thanks Ronnie. Hope you have a scorcher too. Christmas that is! Caught up with the little Libris triplets of yours in Mackay a little while ago.Congratulations, great little concertinas.

Thought provoking. I love the juxtaposition of the text with your marks (and I too am a sucker for red). Merry Christmas from a snowy and very cold part of the world right now!

Love this, Jack. The palette, the quotes, the thoughtfulness. Much more inspiring than the "Trump is a dick" page I hand-lettered in my notebook yesterday! Just had to get it off my chest! I'll now move on to something more uplifting. Thanks for the inspiration and all the best for 2017. I'll see you in the mail!

Thank you for your comment and Christmas wishes Miss Iowa.I do envy your cold weather, it is getting hotter each year!

Lovely to hear from you again Adrienne. I do share your thoughts on Trump but wouldn't waste my breath. If it wasn't so serious it would be a huge joke.Yes , lets's make some uplifting things and share them around the world. Look forward to seeing you in the mail although it is getting to be a bit of a luxury.

The new cover on 'Bonne Chance' looks great Jack and the drawings are fabulous as usual. The colour and quotes work really well with the drawings and that red just sets it all off.

Jack Oudyn said...

Thanks Helen. Yes there are enough similarities with the other "Chance" books to make it a little series. Somehow though, I think this may be the last book exploring the same theme but you never really know.
