Illustrated Book Pages

2020

There’s nothing like the feel and smell of an old book. The paper is pulpier and the well-worn pages have a slight musty scent. As I rummage around thrift stores and antique shops I keep an eye out for tattered, old books. Ones that have been read hundreds of times, the binding is coming undone and pages are falling out. Surely headed for the trash, I rescue these tomes and the pages become surfaces to bring creatures and monsters to life. One such series of monsters I titled “Out of the Ashes”, as the books I used were likely saved from a fiery demise.
