the LITTLE BOX project is born

This is my first LITTLE BOX.
I made it for Yolande's birthday.
It's the first thing I did in a loooong time that wasn't work related as all I've been doing since I left my job is work on my website, portfolio, marketing material and networking... At last something absolutely non-useful!
This is clearly the
beginning of a series as it makes all my weird impulses I've had since ever make sense: I've been collecting little things, scraps of interesting papers, weird material samples, coupons, and now I can make them center stage again.

In this LITTLE BOX:

The chair on this one was bought at Kid Robot on prince st (kidrobot.com), it comes in a box for $12 and you don't know which one you'll be getting. Which is great as it brings the unknown factor which is going to give the tone.
The lips were bought on a tiny vintage toy store on Houston between
6th Ave and Varrick, it's flip 3D print > see the small photo, you can see (barely) it makes a kiss when you move it sideways.
The lamp is - obviously - made with Japanese newspaper and sulder's wire to give its shape. The foot of the lamp is a Moet champagne cork.
The wallpaper is a design pattern from my library. I just change the colors and scale.

So here it is, hope you like it, I can't wait to make the next one!
