I mentioned in a previous post that many student’s notebooks look the same. In an attempt to avoid blending in with the masses I used my Moleskin as a canvas.
This painting began as a reproduction of Number Two: Hardcore Artist, but as I painted I noticed that my brushstrokes were forming what looked like a vagina (or a papaya? Who knows *winky face*). Having acknowledged the vaginal form, I pursued it. I even Googled “Vagina art” — I wanted to be accurate without having to get out a hand-mirror.
I asked one of my friends whether the vagina (*winky face*) was too much for school. She made the excellent point that the person who confronts me about my painted Moleskin obviously has vagina on the brain. You dirty boy or girl.
“Is that supposed to be your vagina?”
“Oh, wouldn’t you like to know.”
To avoid any confusion I wrote “Vagina” on the back of the notebook.
