Crow shaped mini art journal [drawing challenge 71 CROW]
Well over a year ago I designed a bird shaped (specifically crow) mini art journal inside of my head and it sat there, designed in full, until I read a few days ago that Carole had chosen the theme CROW for our drawing challenge group. It was a firecracker under my behind and took only a few hours to really put together. Here is my contribution to this weeks' challenge. It is 4"X3".
This is a cover shot with the 'tie' opened so you can see the bird painting. It's painterly and has a huge eye, but folks, this is a prototype. Give me some leeway. Now the journal has two pages opened so you can see what that looks like. The pages are quite blank as I will do finer design work in my next prototype development of this project. For now, you can see what it looks like, basically.
Now all of the pages have been opened. This journal is put together in the style of a 'coin book' where each page unfolds according to how the rest of the pages unfold. This book offers a front cover, back cover, and three leaves (to give six pages).
Again, the pages have been folded up and the front cover can be seen here, with the string tied around to bundle it up into a little treasure.
Thank you for dropping in today, and if you want to see more wonderful art with this theme, click on to Carole above who is our wonderful host this week.
