Way back in 2009 I published a small book as a part of a solo show I had at Rare Device in San Francisco. Everything You Need Can Grow takes its title from from Teenage Fanclub’s “Stars & Planets” and illustrates the end of a long, lonely and cold winter. At the show, the book sat along aside the thirty-eight original watercolors used to illustrate the story.
Yesterday, I happened to notice the last few copies sitting on my shelf and I realized that I had never truly shared the story online. So, why not now?
And, here is a little experiment where I tried to set the books images to Mojave 3′s “Bluebird of Happiness”. I thought the song (a personal favorite) just fit and wanted to see how it flowed. I like how it turned out although I wish I could REALLY animate it.
