Story Tree

"The Story Tree" ink & paper, 2013

This is part of my contribution to a class book I have been designing and putting together. I used watered down ink sprinkled with salt to get the effect on the tree trunk, then spent way too long cutting it out and making a ton of leaves, then gluing said leaves down. The book interior has to be black & white but the original does have some colour in it. There are probably simpler ways to get the image I wanted but I enjoy the cut & paste effect on this–it also gave me a good excuse to listen to the BBC Radio adaptation of Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman while also being somewhat productive. Win win!
