Illustrations that didn’t make the cut

I wanted to include some cut paper art illustrations that I created, in the last couple of years, to practice new techniques, create new characters, or just keep creating. These didn’t make the cut to be part of my portfolio or they have been replaced by new illustrations.

They are listed by date.

Laboratory Light Box


The Swamp Creature’s Frankenstein Laboratory

Edgar, the swamp creature (as his parents had nicknamed him), was a lonely creature. He was born to normal people, but right from the start, it was clear he was not normal. His body began transforming into something hideous, not like any human his family had seen before. His family came from wealth and prestige, and if anyone found out they had created a monster, it would be the end of them. Therefore, they hid him away in their basement.
Edgar made the best of a terrible situation and soon became obsessed with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. He turned his basement into a shrine to Frankenstein. His only real friends are his imaginary friend, Mary Shelley, the skeleton he keeps in his closet, and the reanimated cat that he pieced together with the good parts from dead cats. His goal in life is to one day reanimate a person and have it be his companion.
This light box was created during Drawlloween 2018.

Sound was added to video for further thunderstorm effect.
