6x6 inches, paper collage
I finally went upstairs to the studio and finished this submission for the current Illustration Friday challenge: Spooky It has been ages since I completed a challenge of any sort, and I thought if I was going to get this done before Halloween I had better get off my backside.
I was inspired by a design I saw in a restaurant created by punching out sections of metal, and I thought I could do something similar using wee bits of paper. I had visions of a series until I actually completed this guy. The little snips of paper are very small indeed, and were difficult to position. Originally it was just the skeleton on the dark background, but I wanted more color, so I planned the moon. Yellow was too close to the light snippets that outline the figure, so I settled on blue to spark up the design.
Now I can't get Van Morrison's Moondance out of my mind....
