have a seat….and a video




for me, part of the fun in creating my chair collection was 
the challenge of how to find a proper "home" for it.
 i usually like to create a little book for my artwork,
but since each one of my chairs was illustrated on loose sheets of paper,
that made the book option difficult.





 and then i started thinking about the actual chairs in my illustrations,
and took inspiration that chairs are most comfortable arranged in a cozy room…. 





and when you open the doors to the room…. 




each chair is there, inviting you to have a seat!
so, instead of making a book, 
i created this simple box structure for my chairs to live in.


 

here's a little video peek of my illustrated
chair chamber!
 

you can watch this video in larger format here!

{you can read more information about each chair in this series
and the inspiration behind it here}

{to create these illustrations, i've cut 140lb CP watercolor paper to 6" x 6", 
and i've used watercolor, a little colored pencil, and graphite pencils.
the cover was created using a sheet of canson mi-teintes paper.}
