Cave Canem, a recent cut-out illustration piece by Eimhin.
Details of the piece:
Here’s a little family portrait made by Eimhin over the past few weeks
It began with this rough sketch. I ended up flipping Chaloupa, and adding in a little tree topper to help the composition
Then the illustration was built up with vectors
A quick colour & layering test to make sure overlap and overhang is working
It was then broken up and outputted to our die cutter.
