Handmade books and various art explorations

Artwork published! Cloth Paper Scissors Sept/Oct 2011 magazine

August 31st, 2011 by Nikki Smith

My “Wee Planet” photography and digital artwork of historic downtown Bryan, Texas has been published in the September / October 2011 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine!  I just received my copy in the mail this weekend.

The great thing about my Wee Planet series is that any direction can be “up” as the planet is rotated — it’s just a matter of your perspective and what catches your eye or your imagination.  It still surprised me a bit to see that someone’s “up” was my “sideways” when I saw it in print!  😉

I fell in love with wee planets as an art form last year and haven’t looked back since.  You can escape reality and imagine yourself exploring a little planet of your very own!  For this wee planet, I took advantage of waking up *way too early* with a toddler to go to historic downtown at the crack of dawn when the streets were quiet.  I love the old facades of these buildings!

If you would like to learn more about my creative process for Wee Planets, please stay tuned.  I have a “the making of” blog post planned!  UPDATE:  My Wee Planet tutorial is now available!
