Will update with more close ups and progress photos!!

I designed the concept for this book to hold a series of disjointed cards where you would need to match the emotion with the appropriate face.

I drew a self portrait in oil pastel which I manipulated in Procreate. I then printed them out on photo paper and further manipulated the cards by either cutting and pasting different ones together, using paint markers, or other such methods.
The backing design is a distortion of images from other student's project (a project requirement.) I printed the card backings on photo paper in grayscale and colored them in with copic markers. The card "borders" were made a similar way, cut out, and then glued on top of a clear vinyl.
The covers are wood, acrylic paint, and paint markers. The spine was put together with coptic stitch.
