We Come From Monkeys - page 3

Okay so my scanner is kind of bootleg and I can't fit a whole 2 page spread, so I'll have to do this in 2 parts - just know that this page and page 4 go together. This one definitely doesn't look done, but I'm not sure what to add - any ideas? (That's for my mom, because I'm pretty sure she's the only one who looks at this).

WCFM - page 2

We Come From Monkeys - page 1

I started this book about 14 years ago, sometime around the magical summer of '96. It's a collage book about animals and humans and the real and imagined relationships between the two. Fast forward to 2009 when my friend Claire introduced me to the (now defunct) amazing open studio nights at booklyn, a bookmaking studio in Greenpoint. I made a book with blank pages, and in looking for something to fill it up, stumbled upon the front and back covers of a book I had started at socialist summer camp entitled, "We Come From Monkeys". It is my goal to finally finish this book once and for all. This is the first page - I'm waiting to do the cover and the intro page until I finish the book, so that will come one day soon I hope. One of the joys of being a pack rat is that my projects can get drawn out forever...
