We all become dependent on certain essential items we use everyday. However we each relate to them in very personal ways. The contents of someone’s bag can tell us a lot, or very little, about the owner. I made common objects out of paper and used fineliner for detail and shading. Although paper sculpting is challenging, there are endless ways to use it.
