Ok... it's finally done. Amazing how much progress was had over the weekend. All in all it's not EXACTLY what I had originally hoped it would be, but I'm satisfied. The way I look at it, this is my first art project EVER (for school that is). I'm sure I'll have plenty more during the scope of the semester. I'll post the complete artist statement shortly.
The laser printed vellum worked like a charm, btw.
