One of the most complex pop-ups I’ve worked on is now completed! The Tropical Spread features a Bird of Paradise, Heliconia, several Gingers, Anthurems, and lush tropical vegetation. The white mock-up version is shown here but I’m itching to post the colored art pictures just as soon as we have pictures of the printed samples […]
