Design-A-Week 31: Asterisk’s Fun With Colored Paper

3 08 2009

As soon as I got to the fifth cutout I realized this was all going to look really quirky, and pretty ugly… That’s pretty much exactly what happened- but I am a great friend of chaos (especially when it’s brightly colored). This one is supposed to be our little babyflake (center) going through all the fun and colorful stages of its exciting flaky life.
Right, that’s bullshit.
I was bored on Sunday and wanted to see if I could make it look like cutouts in layers of colored paper. I was going to redo the whole thing with correct proportions, but correct just sounded so wrong. I added a meek attempt at homemade paper texture (noise & blur) and played a little with the shading. And once again, this looks like a kindergarten art project (I’d give it a C+ for effort).

What grade would you give it?

And what grade would you give my other designs? Check them out in the Design-A-Week project over at!
