View a Couple of Roz's Past Fake Journals
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.

Seventeenth Page Spread in Roz's 2011 Fake Journal

Click on the image to view an enlargement.
Above, the seventeenth page spread in my 2011 fake journal. Just a quick word of explanation since the scan doesn't show it—the light green in the background is sparkly! Since the text was written rather small, here it is typed:

2 p.m. Como

Later, at 6:30 p.m. on our walk, watching Turkey Vultures soar, scratching on the limited lift over the E.R. Flats ridge.

B: Turkey vultures are a pretty  bird.
T: No I think they are an ugly bird.
B: Maybe their face but they have a very pretty wing from underneath.
T: No, not their face. They are a scruffy, ugly bird. You're a ginger who wore a green suit. Stylistically your opinions don't count for much.
B: [uncontrollable laughter, per usual.]

Well the vulture looks good the way you draw it!

Freebird, that's not a vulture. Those are all Blackfooted Penguins at the Como Zoo. The vulture's were sighted later. Roz

Aha! So you observe vultures in "real" life, too. :-) Don't know if you saw my most recent PJI, but I sketched you watching vultures fly in to roost for the night on my "fake" island in my "fake" journal, of course. (It was a sight I experienced my "real" self and it made a huge and beautiful impression on me.)

Lol, I can see that now! Thanks for pointing out my mistaken identity. They still look nice!

Freebird—I'm glad you still like these birds. I have to draw a turkey vulture sometime!
