Aaaand I’m back with more defaced books! :D
This time, I want to show you all three books in the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness, one of my all time favourite series.
I used silver, gold, and blue metallic gel pens for everything except the red parts on The Knife of Never Letting Go, which was done with acrylic paint. :)
The Knife of Never Letting Go
Okay, so first we have The Knife of Never Letting Go, which I actually finished last. I’m super happy with how it turned out, and it’s probably my favourite out of the three, though it was a real pain to paint the silhouettes. The black from the background kept seeping through, so I had to do around 5+ layers of paint. It was worth it, though.
On the front, I painted Manchee and wrote “Coward” about a million times around him. Why? Because I love pain.
I used this picture as a reference.
For the back I wanted something a bit nicer, though, so I drew Todd and Viola surrounded by “Here.” There has to be a balance, you know. ;)
As a reference I used this.
The Ask and The Answer
If you read my last post about defacing books, you’ve already seen this one, but I thought I’d include it here as well.
The Ask and the Answer was the first one I defaced from the trilogy, and now there are things I wish I’d done a bit differently, but I’m still really satisfied with how it looks. :)
Monsters of Men
Last, but not least, we have this heartbreaker.
For Monsters of Men I pretty much did the same thing on both sides because yay, symmetry, except that I wrote BOOM on the front, and VIOLA on the back.
And this is what they all look like next to each other:
Pretty darn nice, if I may say so myself. ;)
