Introducing New Series: The Animal Portraits

Monday, July 28, 2014

For a while I thought about starting doodle series that would follow a similar style and simplify my 365 Animals project. I will still use different media and materials for my animals, but these little portraits will become a regular feature for this challenge. My first guest is Mr. Mouflon!

Day 56: Cardboard Tube Giraffe

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Today's animal is dedicated to my friend Ajda who loves giraffes. The giraffe is cut in single piece from a cardboard tube and wrapped with collage paper. I also attached a woolen tail.

I came up with an idea when I saw that we were out of paper towels. I automatically asked myself what animal could be made by using this cardboard tube. I guess that by now my right brain already sees animals in everyday objects by default.

The project wasn't as simple and quick as I expected it to be, but I think that I'm going to make more animals from recycled materials. I just have to come up with a bit simpler ideas. :)
