untitled (sleeping on the back cover)

original drawing on found paper (paperback cover)

5.5 x 8 inches

A back cover ripped (part of the spine is on the right) from a found book (a book someone was throwing away), then used as a surface for a pencil drawing with watercolour.

The title of the original book is Politics and Culture in International History. In other words, it needed to be redeemed.

What made me save this was the deep, soft cream of it, the way it almost invited some pencil and drops of colour.

A girl, putting her head down, as if on a desk, in a classroom or library.

Meant for a frame.
