layered illustration

six layers

I've been really busy with projects for the shop and clients—you can tell when the blog is scarce on posts—right? When I get this busy I tend to have a little side project that I chisel away during breaks. This week it was this one. I've been wanting to do it for a while and I finally decided to just jump in (no pun intended! ha!).

six layers

I used one of the photos from the day I went skydiving (going back in March-weeee!) and created a six layered illustration. This is only a 5" x 5" piece but I can easily imagine it as a poster (maybe down the road?) or on a t-shirt. I need to work on more projects like this. It's a great mental exercise of deciding what goes where and what gets cut out. Fun!

Well it's back to the drawing board for me. Today's the last day I'm alone because the kids will be out on Thanksgiving break all next week. Gotta run!

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. First of all, I'm always impressed by people who skydive! I don't think I could do it. Second, I absolutely love how you translated the photo into layers of paper. So clean looking and totally recognizable. Go you!

  2. OMG how did you do this!!!?!? I would love to make this for my brother and dad!
