Recycled art 1

Art card with page from old dictionary (says "daredevil" on the page) and art from old comic

I’ve been making some art card (same size as baseball cards, 2.5×3.5 ins.) from old dictionary pages and old comics that have seen better days.

Reverse side of a Daredevil art card, cut from old braille manuscript

Reverse side of same card.  This is interpointed braille, which means the braille is embossed on both sides of the page.  You are actually looking at it sideways, because I forgot to orient it  to landscape for the front of the card.  Anyway, makes the back of the card a lot more interesting.

Daredevil gets a headache.

“Remembering all these rules for braille gives me a headache.”

You and me both, DD.

Murdock’s Law

Thread painting of Joe Quesada art from "Parts of a Hole" arc

Entire panel of thread painting "Murdock's Law"

Top: Closeup of “Murdock’s Law” thread painting by me, hand dyed fabric by my friend Cynthia Hibbard.  Original art by Joe Quesada, from Parts of a Hole, written by David Mack.  The braille reads “integrity” and “justice”.  Cynthia dyed all the fabric used on this piece, and when she sent me the tie-dyed circles and the mottled  piece from the same dye lot, I had no idea what I was going to do with either of them.  Then one day it hit me, and here’s the result.

Bottom: Full quilted panel.  Text on the left side from David Mack’s cover art on Daredevil Issue #24, vol. 2.  I hand beaded the fringe along the bottom, using vintage beads given to me by a friend, whose mother was my senior English teacher.  I wonder sometimes if I ever saw her wear them in class.

Downtime

Daredevil reads a comic book with his hand...in a glove.

“Oh, come on now! I’m much better looking than this!”

Maybe you should try taking your gloves off before you read the comics, DD.
