I created a diorama of sorts using a shadow box picture frame. I hand painted the kitties, made a star stamp to create the night sky, and cut and glued paper. To give a dimensional look, I used cardboard spacers in between the elements for a natural drop shadow. I also glued parts of the tree and shrub on different planes to give a feeling of depth. When it was all done, I digitally added shadows and high lights!

First I love the idea-so imaginative, and beautiful artwork and design. I think the shawdow box with the layering of trees and shrup give this piece an even stronger appeal. Excellent work!

I remember the string games being popular when I was in grade school. The ones I remember were Cat's Cradle, Witche's Broom, and Jacob's Ladder. Great illustration and nice take on 'play'.
Don't know the game, but the illo is nice.
A amazing illustration – just love the scene and the white/black cat… Wonderful feeling of the puppet theater with layered background. Real treat!
