Working with cut paper has its advantages and disadvantages. One of the latter is working with pale colors (I'm looking at you, white!). Greedy little buggers, they pick up everything they possibly can: fingerprints, pencil smudges, cash from my emaciated wallet. This gets especially tough to work with when I manage to stab myself in the finger with the x-acto and start leaking all over the place. Damned inconvenient. But it did force me to take enough of a break to blog this sketch of a piece in progress. It's presenting some interesting challenges. Chances are, the final will be pretty different than the sketch below. I like to think of it as the evolution of a piece. "Damage Control" works too.
