Paper Crane

Paper Crane illustration by Bryna Shields

This week's theme for Illustration Friday is "paper". The theme wasn't initially inspiring to me, but I decided to give it a go anyway; perhaps because of this fact, I want to see if I could prove myself wrong . I started thinking about materials made from paper, and it came down to paper cranes or those paper fortune tellers from elementary school. Both bring back memories of great joy as a child. I settled on the paper crane because I liked the idea of juxtaposing something manmade with natural elements. I'm pleasantly surprised by the result! I've continued to experiment with texture which has brought new life into my process.

Happy Tuesday, friends.
