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.

A Video Flip Through Roz Stendahl's 2011 Fake Journal



If the above embedded video doesn't work please view my 2011 fake journal video at YouTube.

The video flip-through is about 8 minutes long. If you've seen enough of the journal by reading my posts and seeing the scans on this blog, and viewing the physical journal doesn't matter to you, I encourage you to still check out the final few minutes (end of the flip through and the credits) to learn a little more about my character.

I'd promised my written wrap up today as well, however, I'm between meetings and will have to post that at another time. Please check back to learn what this fake journal month meant to me.

Love the journal, and love learning the fate of its author!

Great ending! I suppose that Esther and Hydra are then no longer "alive" either. How sad.

Roz, it was so wonderful to view the flip-through of your journal. It's such a different experience from seeing the pages posted individually. What struck me was not only the warmth of the colors, but the satisfying compositional balance. It's a real visual treat. Thank you!

Michelle, yep, they are all the same person so they all go. It's sad, but for me it's funny and liberating for a host of reasons. It's part of how I look at the world.

Jamie, thanks. I like to see the flip throughs because it's a unit and gives a sense of flow. I think your comment about color is very interesting because I actually used a different color palette for Tyra's work than in my work. A lot of yellow and orange. Thanks for reading. And watching.

Thank you for the update on Tyra! Such a fitting end! And I thought PB60 was hard to get!
