Best and Worst of Times by hollarity Best and Worst of Times by hollarity
AHHhhhhhhhh

yessss

I am ALIVE, dear people.
Word to the wise- Carefully read ALL college application requirements... I didn't know till three weeks before the UT Austin Art school deadline that I had to include FOUR 3D pieces along with my other work...

being that I am more of a... Illustrator... I am a bit lacking in the sculptural department....

SO HUZZAH- I DECIDED TO RECYCLE BOOKS INSTEAD~

I LOVE Su Blackwell, and have always wanted to give this form of art a shot *A*

As the title suggests, this is a carving of Charles Dicken's Tale of Two Cities. HURRAH JUXTAPOSITION OF THE TALE'S PRINCIPLE THEMES >8U

...This was my first of three book carvings which is why it's a little bland...

Ah well. Had fun... Rushed stressful fun l3;

And no. The illustrations in this one are NOT mine- They belong to the illustrator of the original Tale of Two cities... Which I can not find the name of right now >->...

PEN KNIFE, BOOK, RUBBER CEMENT. AWRIGHT

Carton was a hero. I loved him with all his angst too. I kind of jumped when I saw "darkness" and "despair" in the fire. This is really cool! I wish I could hold the book in my hands.

Thanks xD

The gallows is (are? I hate singular nouns that end in 's' lD) actually from the first page too- It's a bit harder to see, but "It was the best of times and it was the worst of.."etc is hidden in it xD

It does, really- in fact, I've been finding myself quoting a couple of lines from Pirates of Caribbean... cheap, I know, but so much fun, especially asking my friend, "Do we have a heading?" when we're about to go some place (most of the time, we don't, haha!).
