An image-filled book featuring the work of artist Janet Jaffke and accompanied by short narrative stories from writer Laurie ShoulterKarall.
This book was born from a 30-day challenge and grew to become a collaboration that continues to this day. Janet accepted the challenge where artists were to do something in their sketchbooks every day for thirty days. Each day, Janet posted her results on social media where her posts caught the eye of editor and writer, Laurie ShoulterKarall. Laurie saw narratives in Janet’s images and began writing short stories and posting them with Janet’s images. Although an ocean and many miles separated the two, they continued to play the game and have compiled some of the early collaborations in their newly published book “catch”.
The game of catch is simple; anyone can play. Making art is the same but too many people feel intimidated by the very thought of being creative. Creativity is the doodle on a paper napkin, random beads strung on a piece of elastic, or a haiku written on a post-it note. The creative process for the two of them will continue as they delight in someone catching what they have thrown out there into the world.
