A christmas gift for my brother: a silhouette lamp with a city landscape. I like the thought of making something pretty out of everyday events, so it's all covered with things like children playing, people riding the bus or walking the dog, an old lady with a rollator.

The lamp in daylight:



The lamp while lit:



And some close ups of details:



I used black adhesive plastic and regular white drawing paper. The lamp is an old flea market find, about 22 centimeters high. I made a bunch of christmas gifts, but this is the only that turned out the way I wanted.

Sorry about that, I changed the pics on my Flickr account and forgot to edit here. All fixed now!
