At long last, I have a new cut paper collage to share. This piece is a gift for Aaron. It features his and his collective’s favorite animals, both real and imagined, and includes some of my tiniest cuts to date.
Moving clockwise around the circle, these creatures are:
- A dragon
- North American river otters
- A thorny devil
- A winged lemur, inspired by Momo of Avatar: The Last Airbender
- A kitten
- Lawes’s parotia, a Bird of Paradise
- The Glaucus atlanticus, a blue sea slug
Admittedly, some of the real-life species were new to me!
The piece is approximately 8″ across by 7.5″ high. The smallest creatures—the spiky orange guy and the little blue lady—are each about 1″ long from head to tail. Once again, my trusty Cutter Bee Scissors came in handy.
Special thanks to my brother-in-law, David Mizell, for his expert digital cropping!
