Cigar Book, and Paintings

Just finished my documentary book for illustration. My intention was to make the box look like a cigar box, and make the book look like a huge cigar. I even made a magnetic wrap for the book to keep it shut tightly. I printed all the pages out, then lacquer transferred the pages onto better paper. The hard board cover is wrapped in real tobacco leaves so the book even smells and feels like a fine cigar. It was an extremely fun project, I learned a lot more than I thought I would, and really enjoyed making images for it. here are some pictures of how the book came out, some more of the original artwork, and some new badly photographed figure paintings. Enjoy.

thanks for reading
