Flora and Fauna by Pen-umbra Flora and Fauna by Pen-umbra
Growing up in Michigan has given me a deep appreciation for Fall. Most of my favorite memories of Michigan involve long walks through vibrant forests, crisp air that turned my nose red, crunchy leaves, roasted almonds and hot spiced apple cider...

A lot of people look at fall as something sad or melancholy as everything begins to die before winter. But it's not so! This is the final frenzy from flora and fauna as everyone scurries to prepare for winter. There is so much to do, so much going on! Even the wind seems to push us on, hurrying us along that sweeping path toward the cold and dark months ahead.

Materials used:
Shoe box
Paper
Balsa wood
White glue
Black and gold sharpies
Water colors

Thank you very much! I just stumbled into this medium, but I really love doing it. Small, meticulous details are pretty fun for me. :)

Thanks! I use scrapbooking paper, since it's thicker and meant to last. These can take anywhere from 12 hours to over 50, like this one did.

Your artwork is stunning! I was wondering - how long does it take to do this stuff? You've got me interested in that. :)

Awww, thank you! These can take a long time. This one in particular was 4 weeks--1.5 weeks of drawing/planning and 2.5 weeks of cutting/gluing/structuring. Over 50 hours in total.

Try something small to start with. This was my first attempt: [link]

At first I thought it was a comic. That would be such an awesome way to do a comic :)
