Around the World



Happy February!
Here's the latest project I have been working on, yet another illustration on wood! This illustration uses two pieces of wood. The girl was drawn out on a very thin piece of birch, about 1/8" thick and then very dangerously cut out with an X-acto knife and scissors depending on the angle. It was quite tedious and I was a little scared of the tip of blade breaking and hitting me in the eye! Why I needed to make her on wood and not paper I don't know but I do happen to think it looks better then it would on paper. I kind of like this approach and may try it out again until I get injured.
