This art piece is an exploration of the purpose/meaning of life. First charcoal was used to create a realistic set of books with soft shadowing. Then acrylics were mixed and softly brushed over the books. Finally a fine art marker ink pen was used to draw in the titles. The words are set to suit the book size, colour, shadowing, angles and to link to the books beside them.
