The project was commissioned to me by Sky for a commercial for a new art channel. The technique is recycled paper, using recycled sheets of paper to fill in the areas of my drawings. The paper I used for the face was recycled from a daily newspaper called “La Repubblica” from 1996, naturally colored by its age.
The shirt is old lined paper that was originally used to print receipts in offices. Whereas the belly button is made from a phone book.
The only elements that were painted are the sea and the characters’ tears.
