Deep wells and love spoons – new altered Moleskine journals

I’ve been working on a series of Moleskine journals based upon quotes from books & songs.  Please do let me know what you think?

‘People’s hearts are like deep wells’ (from Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki Murakami):

‘I wonder what ants do on rainy days?’ (From the book Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami):

Below is a Valentine’s journal based on ‘love spoons’.

Love spoons were popular in Wales from the 17th to 19th century. They were wooden spoons carved by gentlemen for their sweethearts as a token of admiration (as mentioned in the book ‘Welsh folk tales’ by Robin Gwyndaf.) Needless to say I have been painting wooden spoons as well!

  1. I love love love the second Murakami one! I might have to purchase it. It is so so so amazing! I can’t wait to see what others you come up with. I will include a link to this post on my weekly links feature 🙂

    • Thanks so much Andrea! New journals just delivered so am really looking forward to illustrating those with quotations from my favourite authors 🙂 Thinking of creating some more Murakami & perhaps a couple of Sylvia Plath quoted poetry journals too!

  2. I love the quote “What do ants do on rainy days?” – the book looks fab.
