Have been working on a couple of commissions so I just didn't have the time to post yesterday, I had to take a break from painting bicycles, that last one was driving me nuts, so I asked readers over on fb to vote on a title for the next series, and boy did they ever respond, (not really at all, 5 people voted) and the first title to win, was the above, "the Book Thief" the other choices were "chimney men" and "standing on ships".
I like this piece, I really like the title, it's been touched up a little since I posted it and the shadows of the arms are much improved.
Before going off to sleep I asked fb readers for another title, the options were, once again The Book Thief #2, Chimney Men and Canadian Girl, I haven't tallied the votes yet, (I believe there were six this time) but just check back here later in the day to see what title won.
BOOK THEFT ANECDOTES FIRST EDITION
hhhhhm I stole a Melody Maker mag years ago - for my love of T-Rex
You know, I did. I stole a Penguin Classics edition of Augustine's City of God from Ned Dickens' bookshelf.
I stole "The Omen" from an abandoned cottage when I was around 12 or 13. Had nightmares for weeks...
I stole a book of Poe poetry from the GRCI library. I wouldn't have, I took it by accident - but their book stealer alarm didn't go off, so I thought it was meant to be and didn't give it back.
i stole war and peace and dantes inferno from the Lindsay Public Library in 1987, i wanted to read them over the summer, but i knew i'd have to bring them back and be renewed a few times, and i already had $5 worth of over due fines, so i took em.
these are the people I choose to spend my time with.
