I decided to base my spirit animal off of a past piece I did.
(The story is that these unhappy people cry into these vases of dead plants, which are then carefully packaged into boxes labelled “fragile.” The cycle never ends.)
My main focus was facial expressions and body language. No one will ever know what a plant is feeling and thinking, or whether or not it is capable of these things at all. Sometimes I feel like a dying plant, but then the sunlight brings me back.
Although it is a paper based project, I decided to use wire to keep the flowers propped up. I used colored paper (tan and blue) for the main parts, and used purple and yellow Post-it notes for the filler flowers at the back. At the bottom, I stuck on a square of chipboard to keep it steady.
