Commissioned project. My client was wonderful and sent me a book to use. It was a collection of three Star Wars books in one. The ship ended up being a bit larger than I originally planned, so it was nice to have that thicker book to offset the ship and provide a little it more stability. And, if he ever gets tired of having the book laying on a shelf, the ship looked really cool by itself. He could always snip the wires and hang it over his bookshelf.

The ship is attached in five places to the book with wire. The wings are wired through the body of the book, which has a cardboard core to hold its shape. The laser cannons are also wired.

This piece is taken, but commissions are open. Contact me on DA or at wetcanvas.jb@gmail.com for info or visit my shop: www.etsy.com/shop/wetcanvasart

Sinbad's ship sails through this book sculpture. The book used is a 1947 edition of "Tales of Adventure", featuring Sinbad's fifth voyage as he meets with the Rocs. The ship has been modeled after illustrations found in the story.

SOLD

Side note, yes, I'm very aware this is very close to my original pirate ship. But, that first one got a lot of attention and sold very quickly to a friend, so I figured I'd give it another go. I've tried to keep true to the story with the design of the ship and not go too "piratey".

So I've been working with a gentleman for a few weeks now about a commission piece. His wife loves Alice, he wants to get her a sculpture for Christmas. We'd been debating what scene would be the best to do when the light bulb FINALLY went off in my head and I remembered I'd done an Alice before. I sent him a picture and he loved it, just wanted it as an open book. SO, here she is...and I couldn't resist adding the white rabbit because, in my mind, he is seriously overlooked.

Commissions are always available. Note me or check out my Etsy shop: [link]
