Book Art Project, complete




My Kuan Yin Book is done. She is 60" long and 10" wide, and made of paper and matt board. Colored with colored pencil and china marker. I've shown here here long and with a close up of the top and then the bottom. At this point I have decided not to fold her, and just am considering her a wall hanging variety of book. She will be part of the upcoming Book Artist's show in March at the Allied Arts Gallery.

Totally stunning! I'm beyond impressed. 60" is no small feat and keeping all those proportions right.....very cool!

I think this is great. If you had painted it it would be a really good piece. But what makes it more astounding is its done in colored pencil, of which I always thought was more time consuming and tedious, at least for me. Great piece

Thank you all, I love creating the Kuan Yin's ... after visiting the Japanese restaurant last night, I've decided to add dowels to the top and bottom so that it has more of a scroll appearance. Don't want to get too fussy tho...
