my sketchbook

i have a new sketchbook. how wicked is that? john got it for me cause he was so sick of me stealing his/anyone else with reaches loose paper whenever i have a tattoo idea (which happens quite frequently here cause im in the middle of designing 2 seperate tattoos for john and all my wishlist tattoos) so he went out and bought me a little A5 black and blue book which i have named Jarpi. i am now quite adddicted to Jarpi. he's generally always on me. i have had him for only 10 days and ive already filled up a quater of him. i just keep on having all these ideas. plus theres heaps of little fact pages in there.

currently jarpi contains:

-multiple wing desings
-the complete pilot code
-theban alphabet
-ancient nordic runes set and their meanins
-scorpio and libra star sign interpretations
-things astrologically associated with jupiter
-how to write in quenya elvish script as well as the complete translated alphabet
-scottish associated symbols and their meanings
-a SHIT load of annotation
-the meaning of certain names
-and a complete bibliography of all my information

i write everything in there that may come in handy when designing a tattoo in the future. it is a detailed recording of where all my designs are coming from. i swear ms. smith would be so proud if she saw how well i was setting out jarpi. except no-one can really read him but me cause its in my shitty short hand scribble. most of the stuff i write in there i write when im walking so its all wonky. and at one point my pen stopped working so theirs a couple pages of me writing 'STU.....F...CK...G...PE..N...WO...NT....WO...K'. but when im an awesome award winning tattoo artist jarpi will be famous cause everyone will want to see where i get my ideas from.

peace out

oooooh can i can i? except my process is long and thorough full of annoying questions and details. but its SO worth it!

oh and by the way- i can write in elvsish. thats right. be lealous of me...


The Enigma said...

...yes, i shall be 'lelous' of you...
Although i am slightly lelous, i do have to admit :P
Your task for this week: write "victoria is cool' in elvish.

Helsinki said...

hmmm ok. ill have to get the elvish spoken translation before i translate into the written word. it may not be the word 'cool' but the elvish equvilent like... 'special' or something...

YES! I'm not the only one who names my scetchbooks! <3

I bought a new one today. A small A5 one that I can carry around with me without my bag digging into me his name is Xander.

Good job on the filling of a quarter of Jarpi already! I wish I could do that. I tend to rub out everything I draw. ;_;
