I’m still not sure what to call this illustration, it has been a bit of an experimental one, and has taken a lot longer to put together between all my other work and projects than planned but I’ve finally managed to take a photo of the full piece to show.

Vaguely inspired by the Jungle Book, and featuring a big crocodile, my absolute all time favourite animal. I had in mind ancient temples and forgotton lost worlds, and lots of twisty vines and trees. (I haven’t seen the new disney film, and had no idea it was being made until recently) The vines and trees were inspired by the overgrown wilderness of having a new garden to take care of and the rest of the elements grew into place around this.

It might not be obvious from the photograph but this piece is not flat, it is part papercut with area carefully cut out by hand with my scalpel. The result is a kind of three dimensional illustration, which I rather like… I have plans for more paper cut work when I find the time.

  1. Very surreal,grand and jumps in your face. I was wondering if it was 3D. It is very 3D. Awesome work.

  2. Thanks Shelley- apologies for the late reply! Yes, this piece is 3D, in that it's on a number of cut out layers, the illustrations themselves are flat though. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
