I named this woman Amalie after a friend’s daughter. I imagine the original Amalie will grow up to be this. As for Agnes, that was a friend’s suggestion for the subject of this portrait. But I’d already chosen Amalie, so I decided to introduce another subject. Woof woof!
I just ordered two accordion notebooks and am so excited to create my storybook drawings in one of them. I was inspired to use this format after I visited the Etel Adnan exhibition at the Mathaf Museum in Doha last spring. And thanks to my own exhibition’s co-curator Namkha for teaching me the word ‘leporello’. I love it.
