Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

They thought him strange, this sheep man, who walked with a can of fish food. His daily routine consisted of waking at 6 a.m. to visit the water’s edge, returning home for breakfast and then repeating the pattern thrice more each day.

His hat, which appeared more a crown, made it crystal clear that fish were what occupied his nimble mind. Those curious of the swimming subjects often asked the sheep man questions. He would continue walking, but smile and disperse thoughtful wisdom on the matter.

  1. So, does every page of these old mags get this treatment or are only a few worthy of it? It’d be interesting to dig through both the original and the Micah Modernized version to see how much the story changes. Your version seems like a surreal hallucination (is that redundant?).

  2. I’m hoping to fill all of the pages – well all of those on the right side (the color bleeds through these old pages). It will be quite a process though, seeing as how I’m not real far in. As for surreal hallucination… nearly redundant, perhaps?

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to post them here.
