Explain how you developed your design for your book carving. How important was it to have a clear plan before starting?
What were the challenges you faced when working on this project? Explain how you overcame them.
Discuss your design and how it relates to the book you chose (if that was the case, if not just discuss design).
Did you take any risks? How and why?
I did take a lot of risks during this project because I wanted to push myself to see what kind of artist I'm capable of being and what kind of work I'm capable of producing. The risks I took were by haveing a more complicated theme in my book. I also took the risk by having a complicated design in my book with lots of small spaces and small parts to cut out. This challenged me to really cut neat and clean.
Describe how you felt about the overall project and if you felt it was successful.
Overall I felt I was very sucessful with the project. I felt I was able to incoerperated the theme from the cover to inside the book so it would be able to tell a story by itself. I also loves how this project really pushed you to your limits as an artist and pushed you to realize what kind of work your capable of doing. I would love to do this project again and experiment with a bunch of other techniques that I could of done when cutting into the book.
