Kissing Not Required
A few years ago, okay, maybe ten, I was roommates with this amazing artist (and super good friend), Kelly. At a certain point in time, she was transfixed with the Grimm's fairytale, The Frog Prince. Her research into the story showed her that in the end, the princess did NOT kiss the frog in any version that she read, instead, she treated him badly, ignored him and threw him against the wall. In return, he married her and made her his queen. Men are so strange! Anyway, my computer broke this weekend and I found myself with an amazing amount of time and so I made this 3D papercut of the Frog Prince. The above shot is the box closed, the bottom is with it opened.
I covered the box with paper, but if I had to do it all over again, I would just paint it. I don't know why I didn't paint it in the first place. Hope you are all well!
