Illustration Friday - PREHISTORIC

This girl was cut by hand with scissors - fun to do but I should have done a bit more planning.  I sketched a face shape on the back and then started cutting - Should have cut out eyes/nose before I did all the hair.  She was getting a bit wobbly and I was afraid she would tear if I messed anymore with her.
 Glued her onto the cover of the moleskine journal that I've been using for most of my faces this month.  Weird how the black tape photographed blue on the edge of the notebook. . .

Superb effect. If you squint it looks like she is holding her heads up each side of her face. Love it!

A great effect. I think she looks good as she is with only half her facial features.

Actually, I think she looks quite good like this - and great on your moleskine cover! I must give this a go sometime! So many creative people doing this challenge! :)

This is nice and very different. I though at first it was a linoleum block print.
