the sandstorm

This is a fennec-- a desert fox. I painted the fennec on a washi card, then cut it out and glued it to a card cut from a food product box with a pattern that made me think of sand blowing in the desert.

When I was little, my mother used to sing a song about the Sandman to help me fall asleep at night. I have several friends who are struggling with insomnia right now, and I dedicate this etegami-collage to them. 


  1. I love this image of the little fox walking bravely into the sandy desert breeze!

    1. Maybe the pattern on the box was meant to look like a bamboo leaf pattern or a panel of wood. But it looked like a sandstorm to me, so that's how I used it. :)
