“i think there’s something about being a young woman that feels very murderous. that’s what i was trying to get with a song like ‘dream girl evil.’ it can be dangerous for people to think you’re incredibly nice. when you get, ‘you’re an angel,’ that seems like such a high place to fall from. when i see messy or violent or terribly behaved women, especially young women, there’s a liberation. to not have to try and survive by being good.”
A papercraft commission of the clients’ characters Aisling and Nichol! They have a heart-wrenching backstory, full of separations and losses and being only able to reach each other through dreams and reflections, but thankfully there’s happiness at the end.
A lot of interesting paper effects went into this one! Nichol, who is a ghost for much of the story, is made from layers of transparent gray vellum. And, since mirrors are important to the story, I used a reflective paper for the cracked mirror framing them. That paper scans pretty dark, so I’ll also put this photo to show what it looks like irl (please excuse my thumb):
