Absinthe Robette by fit51391 Absinthe Robette by fit51391
A multilayered papercut based on the "Absinthe Robbette" poster by Privat Livemont ([link])

Done on plain watercolor paper and colored with watercolor paints after each piece was cut. Dress is made from tracing paper.

Took about 15 hours to stencil, cut, paint, and reconstruct.

Love this. I have a framed copy of "Absinthe Robette" hanging in my study.

Thanks so much :) It really is a classic and it's one of my favorite pieces -- I had a great time twisting my own interpretation of it.

haha. How funny. I hadn't ever consciously noticed this illustration until today... and I saw it twice.

Using the tracing paper for the dress was a fantastic idea. This looks great.
