Colby Work: "We're Sailing!"


"We're Sailing!" Paper on chipboard. While Josh and I were designing some tees, the idea for this sailboat-as-a-coffee-cup came up and I somehow got it to the point where I wanted to make it out of paper. The above has no pen or acrylic use whatsoever, just paper. I lifted the flags up to look like they were blowing in the wind. This is a new style for me, and I'm not sure what to do with it yet, but I really enjoyed making it and I'd love to make more. So, if you'd like a piece like this, let me know.
