The paper cuttings

Papercutting is a hobby of one of my longtime friends. Flipping through an album of his intricate designs, I chose two to silkscreen. I digitized the designs by scanning the paper cutouts, and auto-tracing them in Adobe Illustrator. I felt it was important to retain the size of the cuttings, since it is much of what makes the designs so impressive. I printed some in blue and some in green, but my favorite are of both colors blended. I worked on this project in June 2015.
