It's funny I have a hard time explaining what I do for my illustration technique, so I decided to make a video detailing the process. It is like a behind the scenes peak at the illustrations before I shoot them.
It is funny how I've had some people wonder your illustrations look like they are real. Yes! Everything was made by me. There is the rare case I use some pre-made materials. I did buy fake snow. Most everything is hand cut, sewn, crocheted, woven, and painted. I get a lot of personal satisfaction from making everything in my own tiny illustrated worlds.
Young children never question why I work like this. Instead I get "That is so COOL!" I think at the end of the day do what you LOVE with the work you create. People notice when do you do things for the joy of it.
My name is Nancy So Miller. I'm a freelance illustrator that specializes in cut paper illustrations and is based out of Savannah, Georgia.
