Illustration Friday - Undone

Mixed media and digital. I had the idea of a creepy little girl gloating with a pair of scissors after undoing the stitching of her sister's teddy, but it reminded me too much of the movie Orphan. I think this works better.

I like the subtlety of this, as opposed to the earlier thought, very much. It's kind of Gothic in a very quiet way.

awesome piece! Thanks for sharing your thought process. Very emotional and intriguing little glimpse into that girl's world -- evocative is the word I'm searching for!
