Each year since 2005, I've had the opportunity to work with The American Forest & Paper Association to create shadow-box awards for excellence in recycling. Since being a paper sculptor is a little like "hyper-recycling", it's a good fit! This year, the awards will go to a community, business, college/university and school who have had exceptional success promoting and practicing recycling efforts. I thought I'd share the process of creating these awards.These are my sketches for the finished awards. We felt a collage effect worked best to give each it's own theme.
