Paper play




A friend who designs custom wedding invites gifted me a bag of left over envelopes and paper scraps. This project was very intuitive and improvisational. I played with drawing on both sides of thin paper with marker so that the colors would bleed through and interact. This is something I would like to explore more maybe in a bit more thought out fashion. I had fun hiding little drawings in the envelopes for people to discover. Ever since I fell in love with the Griffin and Sabine trilogy as a teenager, I was intrigued by getting to unveil something while reading or looking through a book. The envelope is perfect for that. There are many narrative possibilities but here I stayed pretty abstract.

What fun paper play! I like the idea of hiding things in the envelopes (I too loved Griffin and Sabine).

I just discovered your blog, over from AEDM. I'm loving your work and wishing I'd discovered it sooner!

Your illustrations are so original and fun. You are a very talented illustrator. I would love to invest in a company to promote your work. Maybe you should do some research on how we could collaborate into getting your illustration to a finished product.

How wonderful! You've combined my two favourite things...stationery and art! :)
