Moon Land

There are lots of shapes and textures here again, making torn and watery landscapes of each page.  I feel like these pages are effectively building some kind of world together. There's a reasonably jumbled nature to them, which I like for its childish surrealism, but they're not without consistency. It makes sense for this happy crescent moon to be here, glowing green and watching over a cartoonish, notebook landscape.

I use the moon motif a lot, largely because I really do find the moon a source of security. I discussed this with my boyfriend a while ago and he figured the comfort I find in the moon's presence lies in its position as a constant fixture. Its continuous presence has a kind of safety and comfort to it, so I think this is why I tend to include it in my worlds as a benevolent, watching figure in the sky.
