This is a new artwork I made over the weekend and it is an ink/fineliner drawing and collage. Whenever I have made collages involving people I often try and use the collage to creating clothing and it never works. I cut the paper too quickly hoping it will look like clothing and it always looks silly. This time I decided to just use the shapes to create something that I thought looked good and not think about it as clothing. I had some beautiful paper, including some lace paper from Chapel Street and some Japanese print paper. I also used a page from an old altas and a Russian novel. I think using this combination of paper also helped with the results, although that being said I have ruined my fair share of "good" things in the past.
This little puffy was made a few months ago but I have not listed it yet. It is one of the cutest things I have ever made and is tiny but puffy. It is available on Mintd.com.
