Artist Julianna Szabo has her own unique interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in wonderland: she created tiny paper masterpieces of the characters and formed the letter A!
“Every detail in the images is built of carefully hand-cut, folded and glued paper. It took me 10 days to complete all the characters and the tiny details shaping the letter, including some short stop motion animations. When I started this project the first step was to make a rough sketch about the letter A. Once I had an image formed in my mind that I was satisfied with, I started the fun part, shaping flat sheets of paper to form the characters. I usually prefer those ideas that have some twist in them, the ones that catch your attention from far, draws you in, then offers more details when you get close. At the end I just keep cutting, glueing and layering until the image matches what I have in mind,” Szabo explains.
