188. (Back To) Skull Notebook

Erasered Notebook Cover (image approx. 3.5 in x 5.5 in). I wasn't sure if they had changed the formulation of notebook covers from when I was a kid, but happily this technique from middle school still worked on a new one. Did you do this to your notebooks when you were a kid? Do kids today still do this?

It was how I survived 10th grade history. Very theraputic.

You should try the same technique on the centerfold in a men's magazine.

My notebooks never looked that good. Nice work as always. It makes me think that Alice Cooper would be proud to see it.

Interpretation art relies heavily on the viewer and the experiences that viewer brings with them. With that in mind... is anyone else creeped out by this one? It must be the Germanic looking type in juxtaposition to the skull that brings about an images of suffering for me.

what is it you do to get this effect?
I'm a sophomore in high school and have never seen this before.

Just erase away at the cover, the longer you stay in one spot the lighter it gets. A standard pencil eraser will work fine. It's easiest to start with simple lines and make words. Good luck!
