This box combines many of my visual obsessions: a white whale, the big dipper, clouds, and waves. I think he's been holding his breath for a long time, and he's risen from the waves just in time to see a lovely night sky. It's the first in a series of printed shadow boxes, which I'm making because I love the look of cut paper and the depth that I can create with layers of illustrated pieces.

This is a limited edition shadow box of an illustration by me, originally made in ink and watercolor. I then scanned and printed the pieces with archival pigment inks on acid-free matte paper (both the inks and the paper I use are rated to last at least 90 years!). All of the pieces are hand cut and assembled by me into a wooden shadow box. The image is protected by glass, and the box measures 10x8 inches. Ready to hang!

Numbered edition of 50.
Second edition.

Shipped via Priority Mail USPS.
