Illustration Friday - BOOK

This week's theme at Illustration Friday is BOOK.  I love books - love to read them, love to create with them.  When I was young it was rare to see me without a book in my hand - I was even in the Nancy Drew book club and it was a happy, happy mail day when my book would arrive!!  Therefore, BOOK seemed like a simple concept until I sat down to make something and was stumped - gave it a few days and came up with the idea to make a literal book in my art journal - from book paper!
When you open the book you see a great quote from C. S. Lewis and a girl who may be a character from within the book or perhaps she is the reader of the book - your choice!
She is colored with Copics and has fun hair or is it a turban - once again, your choice!!

I love that you can't tell whether she's facing forward or looking over her shoulder -- very cool angles. Is the book cover on cardstock? Very cool concept.
