Illustration Friday - Poise


This is a paper collage I've made for Illustration Friday this week. The theme is 'Poise' and I've created a graceful Japanese Geisha from Chiyogami and other papers on rice paper. It's quite a long, narrow format which didn't fit in my scanner. The photo turned out reasonably well, though do click as it is best viewed large!
