Lara's Work in Steve S.'s Book

I have a lot of catch-up to do here posting-wise - I looked back at my notes and our various iterations of shipping order... based on those, I hope that I am labelling folks' books correctly here - (This is a pocket-size red book):

This is a collaboration page where Aya drew the mouse and "Circus" text to which I added some additional stars and atmospherics as well as the satellites, blue background area and black (found) text. It was photographed in subpar light, so imagine it a touch less yellow...

On the facing page I drew this insect - a bit of a stained-glass creature with found text incorporated ( I believe this sentence came from A Manual for Cleaning Ladies by Lucia Berlin):

I drew this chair on the subsequent page and again incorporated found text (I don't know the source for this one, because I have been experimenting with chance and random re-contextualization of elements to see what happens.)

And my next page was this, which I left flowing over to function as a collaboration start for the person I shipped to, I believe at that time i t was still Ballookey.  Believe this text originated from a Joesph Albers book on color theory. Does having that information make this more or less compelling? 

Thanks for looking and any comments,  
I will get my next batch posted soon. 

Happy summer wishes to you all!

These are wonderful! I particularly like the insect with the stained glass wings! So cool--and the old Brownie camera. And the uncomfortable chair! Hah! All fun!
