A Commission and a Con


With so much going on, I really haven't had much time to do commission work since I made my way down to Los Angeles. This was the last piece that I was able to work on, and I just realized that I had never posted photos of it. So here you go! It was a lot of fun to work on, especially the leaf/ornamental detail in the back.

I do love me some birds.



And just for kicks, I held the finished piece up to a back light. It got the inspirational wheels turning. Perhaps some lampshade designs in my future?

Perhaps.



I also wanted to let everybody know that I will be spending this coming weekend in Seattle at the Emerald City Comic Con! Miss Liana Hee and I are sharing booth #1004, and it is going to be a good time. Please come say hello if you can!

Beautiful piece! Looks amazing with light coming through the back

Fantastic color and composition, as always. I've followed your blog for a while, but this is my first time commenting. I dabble in cut paper and I was wondering the scale of your work. To comfortably get the kind of detail, I figured your pieces would have to be a bit on the larger side. Great work! Congrats on getting that Tangled job by the by!

Brit- My sister loved the work and it's hung lovingly in the middle of her creative space.

I met Bill Perkins today and he had some great things to say about your H&G work.

Lucky me, I am the new owner of this piece! I was surprised and delighted when I saw it as your post today.
It is such a cheerful piece, and it does just that for me, it's a little dose of cheer each time I look up and see it above my desk.
Thank you Brittney.

Starline said...

These are so fantastic! Is there anyway you can do a tutorial for a super basic piece?

Or could you recommend any how-to paper craft books/tutorials?

e●cinder said...

Dan Barrett said...

Truly inspirational work. Your whole gallery is just amazing.

Brandon Kallmes said...

Wow! I am just blown away by your work. Such a breath of fresh air!

WOW Gold said...

I figured your pieces would must be considered a touch for the bigger side
When we play the WOW, we need to try get the Cheap WOW Gold,thst's to say, spend less money, do we have any good way to Buy World Of Warcraft Gold from trust friends or some way else? When we have that we can play the game becomes more quickly and update the levels more easy.
