Collaboration and Laser Cut Marine Animals

Tuna Fish - Laser Cut Marine Animal Canvas

For the past month (and then some) I’ve been cutting (then sanding) upwards of 1 thousand plywood shapes on the laser cutter at TechShop for a collaborative project with artist Katie Schuler. All of these shapes puzzle piece together to create life-size marine animals that will be sketched and painted by Katie for a show, Sea Spirits, coming up on the 4th of June in Washington, D.C.


Here are some more of the laser cut animals. Mola (Sunfish, Irrawaddy Dolphin, and Harbor Seals).

And here are some sneak peeks of Katie’s painted pieces. They look fantastic!


More updates when I get them!
