Breed Papercraft Project

The project started in the fall of 2016. My purpose is to draw paper portraits of different breeds of cats and dogs. I wanted to try creating portraits in a "3D" card-like style, which I have been using in commissioned work for several years. My goal is to complete an extensive catalog and maybe an art exhibition will also be set up for these works in the future.

The work is done using a variety of tools. Sketches are drawn digitally, after which the sketch is split into parts using a light table. Light-resistant contour pencils are used for the work and various water-soluble colors are used for coloring. Finally, the parts of the work are scanned for further processing and the portrait is assembled ready for photography.

Do not see breed you like?

I am happy to accept breed suggestions. There are already lot of breeds on my lists and I do these a lot according to inspiration - however, if a breed is often desired then I might move that breed to the to-do-list faster.

I also make custom portraits in this style. So I make portraits of different pets based on the photos.

Products from project:

From all the work on the breed portrait -project, I make different products that I sell at sales events, and they can also be ordered by sending an email directly to the artist.
I will add finished products to the catalog little by little, the selection may vary depending on the breed at the moment. It affects inventory balances a lot and how many products have been sold at sales events.

Even if the product is not currently available in the catalog, most of these products are after-delivery of products, so even if it is not in stock, it is possible to make the desired quantity to order. Feel free to contact us.
