What does the fox say?
My friend Steph does some wonderful pen and ink drawings which she posts up to Facebook occasionally. Somehow I missed this one way back in February but as soon as I saw it I knew it would make an awesome lasercut. The artwork is all hers, I just vectorised the lines, by hand, to create some fancy line art. Automatic conversion would make 1 line either side of the pen marks in the drawing and I knew it had to be a single line per stroke to look right.
It's made from 2mm ply wood, Mahogany and Oak and backed with 0.8mm birch, I think it would make a nice brooch. Next time I might do the chin in Oak too.
