“O Scarlett”

Another Reader’s Digest Condensed Book. I really enjoy working with this type of illustration, and the paper cuts nicely, too. This particular volume had three condensed stories: “Comeback,” “The Deceiver,” and “Scarlett: The Sequel to Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With The Wind.” Normally, I would try to use elements from each story, but for this project I decided to focus solely on Scarlett. Much planning and moving things around was involved.

Also noteworthy is that the thickness of these books gives a really nice dioramic effect.
