Smaller is Better

Though my book pear looked fine in photos, in person it was much too bigger-than-life-sized. So I cut the template into two smaller fruit shapes, then carved up the big pear.


I like these even more!

Funny thing about representing objects at a different size to reality. Smaller than life size is fine, possibly cute. But if the representation is going to be bigger than life size, it kinda needs to be a LOT bigger. Just a little bigger looks odd and unsettling.

  1. I agree, those look better. I think they’d be cute even smaller. But then knowing you…. you’d have to think of something to do with that paper that’s going to be left over.
