Memoirs of a Pale Chubby Fish: Cover by Madelei Memoirs of a Pale Chubby Fish: Cover by Madelei
Memoirs of a Pale Chubby Fish: Cover
The commonplace book for my freshman (fish) year at CalArts. Just like my past books, it contains scraps, artwork, stickers, and silliness. :B

Finally got around to making the cover! It was initially just a store-bought sketchbook with blank cardboard covers; then I replaced the metal spiral binding with hemp cord ties and refaced the covers with polymer clay, more hemp cord, and acrylic paints. The MOAPCF initials are carved into the "stones."

NOTE: I had scanned all the pages before I rebound the book (and I'm NOT rescanning/reediting/recompiling/reposting them), so they still have the old spiral binding in the pictures.

See the pages inside-->madelei.deviantart.com/gallery…

it's the title of the art journal--see the pages inside: madelei.deviantart.com/art/Moa…
lol it's also a metaphor for me that year--i felt pale and chubby because i would sit inside and animate all day, and it's "fish" because it was my freshman year in college

This is really amazing! Not just how great the outside looks but the inside too. It's just so packed full that I could probably look at it 100 times and see something new each time.

Those covers are gorgeous!  The whole look of the book is just amazing; my fingers are twitchy just from the want to feel the textures of it.

You could make journals for a living. So beautiful. It looks like a stop motion prop.
