idea for mural

angel and i talked yesterday about my idea for the leftover space for the mural ... i am not so good at sketching so we decided that posting my idea would maybe make it so someone else could sketch it for me (danny?)
my idea was that we could do a big book with the pages leafing out and then on the pieces of each page you can see to have different people in different environments reading books... and then if a really detailed thing creates itself having their books have the same kind of thing going on.
i realize that only 2 full pages are going to be able to be seen but if done the right way i think we can have it so that pieces of other pages can be show to make a beginnings of images appear with the same general idea
angel mentioned that another book would be appearing on the other end of the mural with pages floating out so i thought maybe some of those pages could make it to the other side and flow into the book in my idea somehow

to kill a mockbird

angel wanted me to talk about the how to kill a mocking bird affected my sister. her class was reading the book in class the teacher told the class not to say the "n" word, but when the teacher was sick one day so the class the whole class said it when ever they could get the chance. My question is who is to blame???

next meeting: this tuesday August 7th 630ish Central.

This afternoon, we painted each canvas with Gesso & we came up with some great ideas/images--here's a couple:

people marching
---do people still march for cause? we wear bracelets, we create blogs, we picket, we even jog/walk, but do we really march?
de-evolution of man/woman & the connection to information
---alicia came up with a great image of counter evolution--man standing up straight but bending back down towards a computer screen.
