The story of Vida and Murphy is an old one. I called on my friend Vivian to compose a short story (without warning or time to work on the story).
The Storybook Project marks my introduction to the computer. At which time I was using the computer to scan original artwork.
COVER: The cover sets the tone for the book. Blue Watercolors with painful typesetting. The typesetting is so bad that I completely love it.
- The scan of print-out does not capture the texture of the stage. The scene created with circular paper cut outs pieced together.
- Both drawings of Vida were cut out of paper and wrapped with arrows. The background is watercolor with tulips.
- The Vida portrait with single red tulip is to me the most important image of the story.
- Paper cutouts.
- Character sketches.
