Tom and Becky

posted by Marcela Staudenmaier

I  had so much fun working for the 2013 Tomie de Paola Contest!

My illustration was inspired by an excerpt from the Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain (Chaprter VI). And, I decided to use my three-dimensional cut-paper technique. This piece measures 40" x 30" x 2" and it was done entirely with Canson MiTentes paper.

  1. I especially like the lighting coming across behind them. It ties them together nicely. Thanks for posting!
