A cut paper illustration of shadows to cast upon the wall with the hands. Alternative title: How I Wilfully Make Life Harder for Myself.

I drew a rough pencil sketch on sketchbook paper, then put this on top of the black paper and cut it with a blunt stanley knife on a deteriorating cutting mat, lifting the sketchbook paper at intervals to clean up fiddly bits of black paper under a bad light late at night.

Comments and critique are always welcome, as are suggested mnemonics to encourage me to, oh, use good tools, bright ideas and a decent light all of which I have.
