My first art journal page of the year - inspired by the first prompt of 2012 from Year in the Life of An Art Journal

THE PROMPT: Word - choose one word that embodies the way you want your year to be LIVED.
THE STUFF: Imagery - create the FEELING of the word you choose.
THE TECHNIQUE: PAINT/DOODLE

I found this photo of Madonna in the gym, i would guess late 80s, two weeks ago and have become OBSESSED with it. I literally have it EVERYWHERE i inhabit - three rooms at home, work cubicle and computer, iphone - it just inspires me in a weird way and really illustrates how i'm living my life right now - trying to grab it by its balls and make it my bitch.

The word Kaboom i have had a long relationship with since i first heard a lyric by the Smashing Pumpkins: "In the eyes of the jackyl i say Kaboom" - which somewhere i have a scrapbook page about.
