Undulating Fjord - a Moving Panorama

August 27, 2012

I wanted to make a present for a friend but was having trouble getting some good ideas.  I always find when options are so open ended it is hard to create something, so in order to give myself some guidelines I asked him what his five favorite words were.  And the mix he came up with gave me these two beauties: Undulate & Fjord.


Putting the two together wasn't that hard conceptually.  What undulates in and around fjords?  Water.  So I made a moving panorama!  Pull the tab and the water undulates!  How exciting!



The entire thing, from the frame to the individual layers, were constructed out of bristol board colored with my trusty Prismacolor colored pensils and inked out with a quill pen.  There are four land layers (not including the background) and three water layers running between them.
