My senior show is coming late October/early November, so needless to sy, I am hard at work. These are some shots of completed and in progress works. Just wante dto see what people think, even though they are pretty crappy pics (old cam, sorry). Also, I swear they are each cohesive and have a theme, but I didn't want to show every page of every book.COMPLETED WORKS
Here's a shot of my first altered book. It's all painting, text and cutouts. The two kids to the right are thier own pages and have more stuff on the other side.
This one is really simple. One spread, a low relief cut-out. The second picture shows the tiny bits of paper left from me ripping layers out. I individually painted all of them to add depth.
One from the scholarship show last year. This isn't the one that made it in, but I really love this page and may use it for my postcards. I doubt you can read the words, but if you guys want to know what it says, let me know.
WORKS IN PROGRESS
Here are two Bibles I saved from the garbage. The top one is getting each page individually watercolored. The second has a shrine cut out (as you can see) where I will add....something. Both will probably go to new homes right after the show.
A terrible pic of a book called Romance. Not even sure if I should post it....but oh well. It's an old paper sample book called Romancing the Darks, so it's been really fun to play with.
Last pics! My fave book right now, all about flight. Since all I realyl want is big, feathery wings. The first spread has a lino cut from printmaking (a.k.a. HELL) I have been holding onto forever. The second shows teh last spread where I have to cubbies, one for a butterfly wing, the other for a parrot wing. I wish all of you could see this book in real life, because it's pretty.
Hope you all enjoyed the mini tour! Feel free to come to my show if you are anywhere near northern Minnesota around October 30 or the two weeks after. Seriously, PM me if you want more info. If you can't come, I will be posting MUCHO pics later.
