Tristan's Paper Stories


 Shalinee Laval

Je commence par tracer l'esquise de mon dessin sur un papier Canson de 120 grammes. Tous mes dessins sont uniques et tracés à main levée, sauf lorsque j'ai besoin d'exactitude géométrique, auquel cas j'utiliserai l'assistance du logitiel Illustrator. Une fois mon dessin terminé, je procèderai à la découpe, avec un scalpel. Le découpage obtenu sera positionné dans un cadre spécial : le découpage est incéré entre 2 plaques de verres, elles-même maintenues à 3cm de la planche du fond, afin que l'ombre du découpage puisse se projeter sur l'arrière plan. 

Chacune de mes oeuvres est encadrée. Vous pouvez me contacter si vous désirez que je personalise leur taille ou leur couleur en fonction de vos besoins. Le prix dépendra du niveau de détail et de la taille de l'oeuvre.   

I draw the design on a special acid-free, cotton rag Canson paper that is 120 gms thick. I hand draw most of my art, except if I need geometrical precision where I use Illustrator to help me. I cut the design with my scalpel, and then frame the papercut in a shadow box frame. There is a gap of about 3 cms between the actual papercut and the back of the frame that allows the shadows to fall behind.

Each of the artwork below is framed. However, you can contact me if you wish to have the design in a frame of different dimensions, smaller or bigger. The price is determined on the level of intricacy, and the size of the art.

Les chats et autres animaux /

Cats and other creatures

A lot of my artwork revolves around cats and other animals, so I have created this separate section so we can enjoy them. My animal characters embody the same spirit of my work which is humour, fun, curiosity and the love for Nature and for themselves. Being a cat lover myself, I have plenty of work around them. Enjoy!
