In order to improve my card collection for Consultancy, I went back to drawing and cutting paper by hand, rather than laser cutting. By doing it by hand, it adds more personality to the imagery, as it is not so perfect, and it was less like putting a jigsaw together for me! I experimented with various drawing techniques, including continuous line, to get my drawing freely and feeling more relaxed. When I felt I had done enough drawing for each card subject, I moved onto cutting paper, creating multiple of each subject (i.e. lots of leaves and conkers etc.)
I chose what I thought was the most successful cutting for each subject to go on my new and updated cards, and I think just going back to drawing and cutting by hand (and not using technology!) the imagery has a much lovelier feel to it, with a more personal feel.
