Like A One Armed Star,

my papier-mache project!! :D
we had to use inspiration from SURREALISM. and also have elements of juxtaposition. my inspiration was Rene Magritte, and his common theme of clouds. My second inspiration was Salvador Dali's elephants with elongated legs.
i then proceeded to use dreamy pastel colors to match the surrealistic idea and added light feathers to the tail.

FEATURE! :
OMG i love this girl, Johanna Nyberg. she is really great.
ONLY 18. i cannot believe it.
her drawings have a BEAUTIFUL and SHARP edge to them. it is so gorgeously original, i have never seen anything like it.
i seriously aspire to have my own defined style like this!
ANDDD she has AMAZING style. (lookbook link below V)
