I make a lot of paper cutting, as that's my skill set. I thought this class would be very interesting because I already have lots of drawings set out. I used a previously drawn set of ocean layers around New Zealand, just to play around with the technique. On the left is an image of my own work cut from paper, and on the right and middle are the paper layer versions from illustrator.
I really love this center one because, New Zealand, or Aotearoa in Maori, means Long White Cloud and this is fitting.
