Here is my hand bound book for The Sketchbook Project. This will go in my portfolio with my other work as a way of showing another skill and also to show all of the illustrations for this project (I only selected 4 out of 10 to put in my portfolio).
The book is the same dimensions as specified by The Sketchbook Project (5×7 inches) and I’ve kept the cover quite simple. The pendant in the middle has one of the illustrations inside it which I love! I found a set of these ‘make your own’ pendants and they’re really lovely. I have some nice ideas for them so I’m definitely going to get some more.
The only thing I don’t like about the book is the shiny pages – I’ll probably get them reprinted onto some nice cartridge paper but for now, the deadline for the portfolio is coming up very soon, so I’ll be concentrating on getting the illustrations done for the third and final project of this module. Post coming up about that soon! 🙂
