Have you heard of Creative Mornings? It's a free breakfast lecture series for creatives all around the world, started by Tina Roth Eisenberg of Swiss-Miss (one of my favorite design sites) and Tattly (the best temporary tattoos, ever).
They invite artists and designers around the world to illustrate each month's lecture theme. So I was thrilled when they asked me to work on September's theme, COLOR. I sent the Creative Mornings team a few sketches and they loved this idea, made out of paper, best.
Then, I got to work cutting out and assembling many small layers of colored paper. I played around with several different arrangements.
