Roz's 2009 fake journal takes place in an alternate Twin Cites, where disease has killed the human and bird populations. (It ends up being an upbeat tale of friendship.) Watch a video flip through of Roz's 2009 fake journal here.

The Twenty-fourth Entry in Roz's 2010 Fake Journal

Left: the twenty-fourth entry in my 2010 fake journal. Click on the image to view an enlargement.

I'm still playing catch up with my posts, and juggling deadlines, so today there is just one more entry for you to check out. This ended up being one of my favorites in the project. My character was very interested in the profile line and earlobe of this person. Eyes, ears, and profile tended to be a constant source of interest, but this earlobe was fascinating to her. And by extension, me. The lobe came out of the ear almost like a large flap. Now that I've seen one like this I'm seeing more of them around and it's very exciting!

This looks really nice. I love the way you backed each face with the other paper.

I only got 6 pages done in my fake journal but since it ended up being about fake things I come across I think I will keep it up as I find something new that's fake in some way so my fake journal is now sort of a real journal. I think I have a real problem with playing, lol!

Freebird, 6 pages is a great start for a first year. And I love that you are going to continue it! I hope it goes well throughout the year and that you join in next year.

It is a great way to keep play alive.

And I'm glad you enjoyed the paper backing on these pages. It was actually very fun to do and I bet I start doing it in my regular journal!
