To give you just a tiny piece of how Book Bash works here’s a what I thought would be an easy challenge to try:
“It was a pleasure to burn.” Using pyrography or fumage, create a sign proOtesting book bans and censorship.
Fumage you say? Having never done it before, my (not-so) inner pyromaniac and artist vibe were both sparked to say the least.
Book Bash is a mini GISH, so I only have thirty-six hours. The very first step was to remind myself I’m using unfamiliar techniques. I won’t have time to dedicate to just one challenge for corrections or perfection. It’s not going to look exactly like I envision it in my head, but I can do this. Okay, pep talk over, let’s get some fire going!
What books shall I choose? I wanted a mix of classic and current books that have been banned and these quickly came to mind.
Let’s see: glue, scissors, paint and a fresh reminder to tell the Virgo in me to zip it(!), and the here’s end result:
I may yet do this over when I have oodles more time to block text, properly arrange the “logs” and about fifteen other things I am internally screaming about, but here it is.
And this is just ONE challenge my team and I completed. 24 hours down, 12 more to go.
