storycards



I'm trying to build up my supply of storycards. Got some cute new paper. Really like the paper in the upper right-hand corner. You can't tell from this image, but it's flocked.

I'm in the process of getting slides scanned, and I will be posting some digital images in the coming weeks and months. I'm also going through my late husband's artwork and notes. When he was dying and could no longer speak, all conversations took place on paper. Of course these are just his side of the conversation, but it's easy for me to figure out who he was talking to. Probably twelve notebooks in all. At first he wrote everything on an erasable board, then we switched to spiral notebooks and legal pads. At the time, I didn't think about keeping them -- it was for convenience, because the erasable would sometimes vanish before he was done writing. I've been scanning some of this stuff, but it's hard to get a clear image since it was written in light pencil. But anyway, I'm digging through boxes and sorting and reading. Missing some slides and artwork, but hopefully they will show up.

  1. These are great!

    I took care of my ex husband when he was dying of prostate cancer, and he couldn't speak at the end either. Or rather, he'd talk, but the words he said were not the words he meant to say. Very hard. I didn't think of writing things. Sigh.

    Anyway, I'm really enjoying this storycard endeavor. I think they're lovely.

  3. The papers are very nice! I did not know your husband was an artist...I'd love to see some of his work.

  4. kelly, it was something he was kind of ashamed of. he threw away most of his work if someone didn't grab it and hide it. and he rarely drew on unlined paper. but i'll post a couple of his drawings later this week.
