What’s a diary banner? I keep an illustrated journal but recently I have been experimenting with 18″ x 36″ or 48″ banners that are folded horizontally and vertically and then folded into page-like squares. Illustrations in these diary “banners” can then cut across multiple pages/diary entries.
This semester I was lucky enough to teach the poetry of Nicolás Guillén (Cuba) and Julia de Burgos (Puerto Rico). I was inspired to create a week-long diary banner measuring 18″ x 48″ with two quick portraits of them in pencil and water soluble graphite. Below are some snaps from the banner, with diary entries blurred out.
