Perilous Frog by ursulav Perilous Frog by ursulav
I have hardly any idea what to call this--collage? Mosaic? It's somewhere between the two--there's glass tiles and cut paper and other stuff on there. Let's just go with "wall jewelry" I guess, that being a term I always rather liked.

It's about 5 x 7, mixed media--Penelope and the perilous frog are a teeny print under a thin sheet of glass, various other shiny bits are cool papers sandwiched under little acrylic pieces, there's some painted clayboard and scraps of illustration board and vitreous glass, all glued together and assembled by an artist who is currently tired of two dimensions and felt like wandering off into a third for awhile.

I don't think people buy prints of 3-D art (particularly not when they're composited onto paper backgrounds to keep from showing all the cat hair that's wandered onto the scanner bed) but on the off chance somebody really needs one, drop me a line, it can be done.

Original has been snapped up by my boyfriend, but judging by the interest, I clearly need to do a sequel...

Prints now available at Red Wombat Studio for $10 plus shipping! [link]

Prints of 3D art are just as cool as those of 2D, if not better.

It's amazing, it reminds of the Art Nouveau frames that Klimt and his friends used to put up.

Fantastic job! :1#:

"That frog will cut you"?

Sounds like what would happen if Bun Bun from Sluggy Freelance went amphibious.

I'm curious... How much would a commission cost? I probably won't be able to afford it but I'm moving into a dorm soon and need something on my walls.

Even without a written story in the description, this piece seems to tell a fun story all by itself. Convenient that the scan makes it look like a book cover.

This reminds me of the cover and subject of a book by one of my college professors, FAIR PERIL. [link]

Thanks for the lovely memories! :)

Is the frog perilous or just disgruntled?
