This is a commissioned papercut inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s best-selling book The Little Prince.
For this project, I used three pieces of paper to cut on: plain white paper for the little prince image and text, blue cardstock for the rays, and light blue printed scrapbooking paper for the waves on the foreground. The crumpled paper background was placed by my client herself. If I remember correctly, she used three pieces of Japanese paper and wrinkled them for a textured effect. Neat, huh? 😉
If you’ve been following my blog, you’d probably know by now that some, if not most, of my works are inspired by songs from my favorite artists. (Click here to get a view of what I’m talking about).
Fresh from watching their concert in Manila two nights ago, I remembered I made a papercut a couple months back about One Republic’s first album.
I made use of my newly bought stone paper back then, which is very ideal for papercutting. I just wish I could find something with less thickness.
The concert was one for the books. I could rave about how Ryan Tedder and his fellow band members rocked the night away but it’d take you days to finish reading this post. So, I’ll just leave you with a video of one of their songs from their new album, Native.
