It was my sons birthday when we were away, he was missing his cat, so a cardboard box later and here he has a cat, the eyes were made from packaging as well.

I liked the rumbustious character of the tomato and the hairstyle of the aubergine.

We have been away for two weeks now. Much of the first week we spent at a friends stunningly stylish house in Aubais.
It is the first time I have been this far south in France and this time the light has really struck me.
The shadows and also a little reflection can be miraculous.
Before we moved to the second part of our holiday, I made some shadow puppets and a wall piece using cardboard packaging and taking advantage of the reflective metallic finish on some of the packaging. A little surprise and thank you to Deb's children who were so lovely as to let us use their rooms.

I love the shadows of butterflies as they flit past so fast and so I wanted butterflies that we could take with us on our walks.
The shadows here are really strong with the strong sunlight and great to play with. I always forget that the shadows all have the same density no mater how thin or thick the paper is. This butterfly has articulated wings and was spliced onto a thick grass stem, it is my favorite.

I love the way you interpret and misinterpret images especially when you see something in a thumbnail and think it is something quite different from what it turns out to be, like a pictorial Chinese whispers.
This piece of work is by 박태희, Melody Park, a Korean illustrator who I have featured here before.
