This piece is called “Happily Ever After...Some Midnight Reading.”
I drew this piece traditionally, by using chalk pastels on a grey textured stock.
The objective of this project was to create a scene using metamorphosis to tell a story. This drawing displays the scene of a book coming to life, long after the reader has gone to bed. The pages transform into the layers of her wedding dress — the bookmark becomes her veil. The quill, the candle, & the spectacles add to an older time period, suggesting books have always held a certain magic.
