Never mind How to Train Your Dragon. Try making one. Out of Crisps Wrappers.
15 December 2010
The last of my batch of Rubbish Pictures is now complete and ready for Christmas delivery… possibly cutting it a bit fine I know, but let’s not dwell on that!
This was a fun picture to make. It’s part of a set of two with ‘Rubbish Fairy’, forming a set of bespoke nursery art, commissioned by a lovely family for their children and created entirely out of recycled food packaging (the children’s preferred food products – making it very personal) that has been collected from their kitchen over a period of weeks.
The dragon sports individually cut scales from Organix crisps wrappers, pizza packaging, yoghurt pots, scraps of fabric and biscuit wrappings. His fire is entirely squeezy yoghurt sachets and sweets wrappers and he sits upon a stony mound created from a Boden Sale Catalogue….
He’s a completely unique and green character, in every sense of the word and this particular design is one of my favourites to date. I hope his new owner enjoys him and that Santa eases him down the chimney with care!
