Day 20 of @joannehawker’s #marchmeetthemaker is ‘design process’. if the brief is to make a paper version of a real object/animal, i start by finding reference photos online, mixing them with my overactive imagination and drawing on adobe illustrator, testing my brain with lots of maths to design the templates which i then cut using my plotter and hand finish the fine/detailed cutting with my scalpel. i hand assemble each piece and if it’s a complicated model there is frequently an experimental stage in the middle, with a few maquettes (sometimes rather a lot!), learning and refining the design with each test.
