The Title Page
So the instructions were to doodle on the title page, but I took my doodles a bit more… artistic. Obviously this is the album art from Blink-182’s self titled album, and let me tell you, it was not the easiest thing to recreate with watercolor paints of all the things I could’ve used. I like it though! And the bottom is just notebook paper with the beginning of the poem that’s read at the end of “Violence” and I burnt it a bit, so most of the poem didn’t make the cut. The whole thing (would be) is:
“My Dearest, I’ve missed you very very much since that last night we were together, and will hold that night especially in my memories for years to come. I’ve been turning it over and over in my mind lately. I’ve read you’re letter through at least 4 times, and will probably read it more times before I’m through. I’ve been sitting here looking at you’re picture and getting more home sick every minute. I’ve wanted that picture more than anything else I know of, except, of course, you yourself. I keep thinking of you Darling; I keep wishing I could be home with you. I want to leave in the worst possible way so I could come home to see you. But things don’t look to good on that subject. This war has spoiled a lot of things for everyone I guess. I’ve never been so lonesome in my life as I am right now. I’m completely lost without you Darling; I never realized I could miss anyone person so much. I just hope it won’t be too much longer till I’m able to be with you again, and live a sane and normal life.”
