I've been working with cut paper and shape a little bit and it's really helping me understand how to work with shape. I've mostly stuck to using line to create my illustrations before and it's because when i'm drawing and sketching thats all I can really make sense of. If I try understand a line drawing in terms of shape it confuses me a little. BUT, using cut paper to create shapes and the adding detail to them is helping me understand how working with shape could enhance my work. I've been creating some motifs of the three pairs of hands that do Baba Yaga's bidding using this method of image-making and I'm really enjoying the direction their heading in.
