Illustration. 3:25.pm

After more than one photo shooting attempting, many de-cat hair dustings, and using nearly every light stand I have…the final is here!

It is all paper and a lot of careful gluing, with acrylic on the board and mica pigments (“glitter”) on the black wall. Some gouache was used on the guys skin because I don’t have the right paper color, so I made my own. The floor has curled paper swirls holding up frosted mylar that I coated with matte medium to take the transparency down. Evidently, glue works even better because you can tell where the papers meet.

The only process shots I have. I kept with the pink swirl, but as the piece developed the yellow wasn’t working. Her vest also met a green marker for the same reason. Luckily, all this made for minimal digital work.

  2. Thanks! It was just a spontaneous thing…I had the skirt glued to a sketch in my sketchbook then decided why not make a piece out of it. So I had to remake the skirt but it worked out.
