Trees - book by daegfire Trees - book by daegfire
I've been meaning to upload these for the past few months. This is a photo from my Masters degree show.
I designed 6 trees, 3 native to the UK and 3 native to New Zealand. Each tree has 6 individual layers that line up to create the full tree.

Please see my Gallery for more photos of these trees and the final book.

The book itself is made without ink. I usually cut paper by hand but this was using a laser cutter. I did however cut each tree by hand as well. Not sure if i will upload them as i loved the burnt edge given by the laser cutter much more then the plain white paper.

Wow. Just wow.
I'm a complete newbie to such a concept, first time I see something like this. I guess it must have taken quite some time and patience, no?

Yeah, too many hours. Before i started i thought it would be quicker on the laser cutter then it would be by hand, how wrong i was. Plus i had to learn how to use Illustrater to do it, I didn't even own the program to start!

Looks great, and now you can airbrush trees on things. :D

I have had a little go with using stencils (but not airbrushing), generally i find i enjoy working with paper more however using these could be pretty interesting.
